Alright, I'm guessing this is the final difficult puzzle,
which is actually difficult [blink]

Other opinions welcome..

A little bit more difficult than the previous, amused, as all the difficult ones, I did not measure the solution time, around 20-25 minutes.

A comment: Generally (neither in this last one nor in the previous) the "restriction" of the different numbers inside any particular cage has been necessary for me at any moment of the solution process. I usually solve them without considering that "condition". In this last one, for instance, you use six 5-cell cages: 28 (9-8-6-3-2), 31 (9-7-6-5-4), 28 (9-7-6-4-2), 23 (9-5-4-3-2), 29 (9-8-6-5-1) and 24 (9-6-5-3-1). I mean that, knowing that the restriction exists, it can help, but in fact it's not necessary to use it, so probably if the killers use cages with "repeated" numbers (inside the cages) it would make more difficult the solution. :-)

In any case, starting tomorrow (so midnight tonight CET) all
Killer Sudokus will have been generated using the new solver,
so their qualification (easy/medium/difficult) should be closer
to the truth [scared]
