The whole BOINC Manager got an overhaul, with new menus and options. See http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Advanced_view#BOINC_Manager_Menus for all changes.

Do network communications is now in Tools->Retry pending transfers.

Please do not private message me for tech support. Use the forums for that. Tech PMs will be ignored.

I'm only partially available, until further notice.
