I see a report and some stats have been published here.
There's been a decent increase in the number of half-games graded - a rise from 282,039 to 317,706. In part, though presumably not entirely, this is due to a one-off 13-month grading year.

Anyway, I'm down from 181 to 169 - can anybody beat that? :P

And who on here has had the biggest jump upwards??

One of the bigger increases was in Congress games. It would be interesting to see some more detail on which events or types of event showed the biggest increases. I'd guess that the British Championship Congress, the London Classic events and Gibraltar all showed increases, perhaps also the e2e4 series. A note of how many players this represented would be interesting as well.
