After a long silence, i write to admins to have news about project (and crowdfounding). This is the reply:

Thanks for your mail, we are facing some troubles with checkpoints in different versions/OS systems. We are working on this app as well as in other BOINC projects to be run soon. JustFoldIt it is expected to be launched in beta in 1 week or so...
Sorry for any inconvenience, thanks for your understanding

On 11 Nov 2014, crowdfunding is announced about FoldIt!:
Tenemos abierta la campaƱa crowdfunding "JustFoldit: Una nueva herramienta basada en BOINC para impulsar la investigaciĆ³n en biomedicina".
...

On 1 Jun 2015, 6.5 months later on the Ibercivis forum, this was the last meaningful communication from the admin:
...
Sorry for this big delay.

We're testing the application, but we have found some differences in the output files between the standalone and the boinc version of it.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding
...

Then, on 20 Nov 2015, 5.5 months later, this private message to boboviz:

Now, on 19 December 2015, another month later, still no activity in this project, including no further communication on its own forums.

I am not being hostile here, at all. I'd love to see it revived and working and churning. However, a frequent update by the admin would be great, especially after he accepted money through crowdfunding.

Don't know how this 'crowdfunding' works, but if following the link 11 Nov 2014 in post above, my security software gets extremely agitated about a URL:Mal issue in the link [mal = malformed?].

I re-write to admins and they reply:

Dear Boboviz.

Sorry for the delay and your patience. Although we're working in the app we are not being able to devote all the needed time to solve the checkpointing issue. Probably we'll try a beta version without checkpoint in few days (workunits about 10~20 minutes), and we'll improve the app in some weeks.

Best Regards,
Francisco
