EFFICIENT CONGRUENCING: The current hot topic for me is the new efficient congruencing approach to Vinogradov's mean value theorem, which for the first time comes within a factor of two of delivering the best possible bounds for the number of variables required to deliver optimal estimates, and comes within a whisker of proving the main conjecture. You can read about this subject here:
