A discussion thread about development versions of BOINC 7.2, the ones pointed out in the BOINC 7.2 change log thread.
You can leave reports here that things went astray, or that you had a specific error message or number. Or you can just tell us that everything went well when you updated.

When you do post about an error, could you please state what the error was?
Also please follow the guidelines stipulated in this thread.

And when you do post may we please ask that you do so without adding your signature? With thanks.

To do so, when you make a post in this thread, uncheck the "Add my signature to this reply" and then make your post. Your signature will still be enabled on other posts, just not this one. You can also edit your post during an hour and take the signature out.
We ask that you post without a signature to keep the purpose of this thread clear: News about project outages, not about how many credits you have or what team you want us to join.
It's not that difficult to do and it gives the moderators even less work to do, as we don't have to remove your post. So please...

BOINC 7.2.18 released for Windows and Mac

Howdy Folks,

This release contains a few changes over the 7.2.5 release:

* Detection of OpenCL CPU drivers.

* Updated localization files for pretty much all the supported languages.

* Support for HTTPS urls in notices. (used by E@H)

* Support for running VirtualBox VMs when installed as a service (Windows Only). It was already supported on Mac and Linux.

Are there any projects currently testing out OpcnCL CPU Apps?

Please report test results to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/alpha/. Please report bugs to this email list.

7.2.21 has an installer bug, which causes the installer to tell you after the installation that 'a component' did not update and that you'll have to run Repair Installation. It'll do this after the repair installation as well. It'll also do it on a clean installation,

But BOINC itself will still run if you start it manually, so you can do any further testing you had planned.

Looks like OpenCL on CPU still has a few rough edges that need smoothing out.

The new 7.2.21 has the installer bug fixed.
If you had an old version, delete it and download the new one.
You will have to uninstall BOINC prior to being able to install this version. The new installer won't let you repair install BOINC or install over a previous 7.2.21.

BOINC 7.2.23 release client released for all platforms.

Howdy Folks,

This release fixes the issues with OpenCL CPU detection event log entries previously reported and updates the localization files.

This is a public release candidate, so please report your test results. The sooner we get to 100% coverage, the sooner we can release a new public release.

Please report test results to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/alpha/. Please report bugs to the Alpha email list (requires registration for first-time posters).

BOINC 7.2.26 released for Windows and Linux

Howdy Folks,

The primary bug fix for this release is using a better method for determining how much memory various VirtualBox VMs use during execution.

Other changes include:
* limit the number of slot directories that can be created to 100*.
* Include an icon for Android for projects that support Android in the attach wizard.
* Updates for AMD GPU names.
* Updates for localization.
* Support for the legacy tags.

I have carried over the test results from 7.2.23 to the 7.2.26 release. The changes were small enough that we did not need to reset the testing clock.

This is a public release candidate, so please report your test results. The sooner we get to 100% coverage, the sooner we can release a new public release.

We could really use some test results for:
* Windows Vista
* Mac OS X 10.4
* Mac OS X 10.5

Please report test results to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/alpha/. Please report bugs to the Alpha email list.

Thanks in advance.

----- Rom

I plan on releasing BOINC 7.2.26 as the next public release on Monday.

Please speak up if you have found a showstopper or log any remaining test results you might have queued up.

Richard, Jacob, et al.,

I've started building .28 which should resolve the issue Richard pointed out in the email thread:

'Boinc 7.2.18, after removing a device specific app_info, Boinc won't ask for work for other devices.'

Could you run a quick sanity check and make sure it still installs in the various configurations you all use plus check if the bug fix works as you expect it should?


Thanks in advance.

When updating to 7.2.31 you may come across:

So before testing this version, make sure you have all important stuff closed down and that you can do a safe reboot.

Clarification from Rom Walton on the email lists:

Just to clarify what has happened the last couple of days.

I released 7.2.31 which is really 7.2.28 plus the one fix required to prevent downloading of images within notices. It does NOT contain any of the other changes that were included in the .29 and .30 builds.

Howdy Folks,

I'll be switching the public release over to 7.2.33 which contains one additional fix over the current public release.

The additional fix is for properly handling the exclusive application dialog in the UI.

Here is a link that describes all fixes applied after the 7.2.28 tag:

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/gitweb/?p=boinc-v2.git;a=log;h=refs/heads/client_release/7.2/7.2.28.1

The same fix appears in 7.2.32, 7.2.30, 7.2.29.

I'll probably wait until Charlie has had a chance to build the Mac client before updating the website.

I wanted to get it out there that .33 is a hotfix release and does not contain the other changes that are slated for the second 7.2 public release.

There are reports - mine being one of them - that the 32-bit version of v7.2.39 for Windows doesn't install cleanly - but it leaves v7.2.38 in working order.

The 28-Jan-2014 10:27 timestamp version (standard, not VBOX - untested) installs cleanly and shows v7.2.39 in all the right places.

We've released version 7.2.39 of BOINC.

Changes include:
- Revert back to the original CPU throttling scheme.
To test: use CPU throttling and compare results with 7.2.33 or older.

Please report test results using the BOINC Alpha Test web site:
http://isaac.ssl.berkeley.edu/alpha/

You can (and should) report positive as well as negative test results.
Please include test results for any of the visible areas of test you are able
to test. This information helps us decide when versions can safely be released to the public.

The complete test matrix can be found here: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/alpha/test_matrix.php

The first time you use the BOINC Alpha Test web site, you'll need to create an account. Please let us know if you have any questions or problems.

Thanks in advance.

Howdy Folks,

It looks like we are making some progress on collecting test results. So far everything looks good. As soon as we are over 95% coverage we'll go ahead and release the build to the public.

It looks like we need some Win Vista, Mac OS X 10.6, Mac OS X 10.7, and Linux results and we should be good to go.

If you have any of the above systems, please report test results to:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/alpha/

If you do not already have a BOINC Alpha account, you can create one
here: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/alpha/create_account_form.php?next_url=home.php

Once we are done with this build we will begin testing BOINC 7.3/7.4 which includes a refresh of all the libraries we depend on as well as a new way to view notices. Going forward we should be able to finally view pictures and stuff in notices. For some types of feeds, maybe even videos.

Thanks in advance.
