BOINC 6.12.30 retracted for Windows.
BOINC 6.12.31 retracted for Linux and Macintosh.


Disclaimer
On development versions of BOINC:
- Expect parts of it to be broken, or in the least to work in a different way than you are used to.
- Expect work failures, deadline misses and losing all your accumulated work in progress, or not getting credit for your work due to unknown and unforeseen circumstances.
- Only use it when you are willing to participate in the Alpha test program and do not mind sending (bug) reports in to the developers on the email list specially assigned for this purpose.


REMINDER TO ALL ALPHA TESTERS:
It's far easier for the developers to fix problems when you send message logs with the appropriate flags set. The main flags are:

<cpu_sched_debug>: problems involving the choice of applications to run.
<work_fetch_debug>: problems involving work fetch (which projects are asked for work, and how much).
<rr_simulation>: problems involving jobs being run in high-priority mode.
<sched_op_debug>: problems involving scheduler operations and other low level information.

Use these flags from the cc_config.xml file.

Report any problems you get with it to the Alpha email list. This list needs registration.

Reporting bugs on this forum or any project's forum isn't very productive as the developers simply do not have time to scour through all forums looking for posts with your bug reports in them. While it may happen that we - other volunteers - forward your problem to them, history has shown it is quite difficult being the middle man in this when more information is needed from you. Hence why it's better for all concerned that you report the problem directly to the developers, who will come back directly to you when they need more information or better logs or to tell you that they've checked in a fix for the specific problem.


The actual change log was taken from the Alpha email list and the Trac Timeline repository changes check-ins. This disclaimer was written by the volunteer moderators of this forum and approved of by the BOINC development team.

Change Log 6.12.30:


  • client: equate notices if their text is the same after removing digits, so that "need 25 GB disk" and "need 24 GB disk" don't result in 2 notices.
  • client: if <ncpus> is specified in config file, set host_info.p_ncpus to that value, so that scheduler requests report that number of CPUs.
  • client: when killing a nonresponsive task, kill its descendant processes too.
  • client: Rom pointed out that on Win in secure mode, the client won't be able to convert descendant PIDs to handles, and therefore won't be able to terminate them. Sigh.
    So terminate the main process using its handle (we'll still kill descendants in the non-secure case).
  • client: my checkin of 8 Apr 2011 didn't work in some cases, e.g.:
    client finishes a job before upload starts, work fetch runs and decides to fetch work from that project.

    Solution:
    set PROJECT::last_upload_start when job finishes, and clear it when a job is uploaded. Defer scheduler RPC for a limited time if last_upload_start is set, even if a transfer is not active.
  • MGR: Fix bug introduced on 6 Aug 2010: if currently connected host name is empty string, we must treat it as localhost. Implement different logic to skip exit confirmation dialog and avoid shutting down client if second instance of Manager is launched but Select Computer dialog is canceled.
  • MGR: Cleanup compiler warnings. Fixes [trac]#1051[/trac] (From: Steffen Möller).
  • client: condition "Got server request to delete file" messages on <file_xfer_debug>.
  • MGR: change simple view notices window title from Messages to Notices.
  • client: fix boinc_make_dirs() (from Josh Highley).
  • client: allow "non_cpu_intensive" to be specified independently for different apps in a project. This is intended to support projects that use the Attic file distribution system, which needs to have a daemon running.
  • Mac: Add new procinfo.cpp to XCode Project.
  • MGR: Use same exit confirmation dialog wording for Linux as for Windows.
  • MGR: tweak strings related to task FLOP size.
  • MGR: Fix About dialog to show (PowerPC) instead of (x86) when appropriate.
  • MGR: Rework exit dialog, client shutdown logic for second Manager instance.
  • Shut down local Client even If not connected to it.


Change Log 6.12.31


  • MGR: Disable list view rules for now.

BOINC 6.12.34 released for testing for Windows and Linux

Rom Walton wrote:
Howdy Folks,

We have a bug fix release for the 6.12 client. This release should no longer display the 'BOINC Diagnistics..." error dialog when the screensaver starts on some peoples machines for Windows. On Linux this build should now work on most Linux machines as OpenSSL has been statically linked in.

Please give this build a try and report test results back via
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/alpha as quickly as possible.

We would like to promote this build to a public release ASAP.


Thanks in advance.

I've updated the installers for the 6.12.34 build, the older installer included an outdated zlib1.dll which caused boinc.exe to crash on some
computers.

If you experienced boinc.exe crashing, please re-download the installer and try again. The issue should be resolved now.

It also adds a bit of code which is needed to support future Einstein@home GPU applications.

The changes since 6.12.34 are for the Macintosh only. Please continue testing 6.12.34 on Windows and Linux.

Change Log 6.12.36

  • client (and API and manager): change the data structure used for system process info.
    -- Old: vector of PROCINFO. Descendants of a process were found by recursively iterating through the vector. Operations are O(n).

    -- New: map of (id, PROCINFO), and each PROCINFO has a vector of its children. Operations are O(log(n))
    Also combined Mac/Win/Linux variants of code that was essentially the same.

  • code shuffle.
  • more code shuffling:
    -- proc_control: controlling processes.
    -- procinfo: enumerating and querying processes.
    -- run_app_windows: launching apps as other users on Win.

  • client/API: Add a mechanism so that apps can report sub-processes that are not descendants (e.g., virtual machines). These processes are then counted as part of the app, not as "non-BOINC CPU time". This fixes a bug where processing was incorrectly suspended because CPU usage by VM apps exceeded the "CPU usage limit" pref.

    Implementation:
    -- The PIDs of the processes in question are passed from app to client via shared-memory, in the app_status channel. A new variant of boinc_report_app_status() supports this.
    -- The VBox wrapper queries the PID of the VM, and reports it in this way.
    -- Procinfo_app() includes a new argument: a list of PIDs that are part of the app, although not ancestrally related to the main process.
    -- In the client, ACTIVE_TASK now includes a vector "other_pids". If this is nonempty, it's passed to procinfo_app().

  • Fix build break
  • Mac: add proc_control.cpp to XCode project.
  • lib: if OS_Darwin use procinfo_mac.cpp instead of procinfo_unix.cpp.
  • lib, api: update XCode project to build same source files in each library as corresponding make files.


Change Log 6.12.37


  • vboxwrapper: report network usage to the client.
  • client: include the above in enforcing network quota preferences for virtual machine wrappers.

Service installation problem?

The problem is still with the ATI 11.7 (or 11.8) catalysts, which break the detection of the card. If you do not use your GPU, you can get around this with a cc_config.xml file that contains the following lines:

<cc_config>
    <options>
        <no_gpus>1</no_gpus>
    </options>
</cc_config> 


This will require a restart of the client.

If you do use your GPU, you shouldn't install as a service on Windows 7 and Vista anyway due to the session 0 problem.

In the mean time, Rom is including a fix that will disable the GPU detection. It'll be in the forthcoming 6.12.38. This will however break GPU detection when installed as a service on Windows XP as well. Sorry for that, but it's either, or. That will get fixed in a future release, until that time, go complain at ATI/AMD that they need to fix their drivers! And please report back when they said they did. ;-)

BOINC 6.12.41 available for testing for Windows and Macintosh.

Disclaimer
On development versions of BOINC:
- Expect parts of it to be broken, or in the least to work in a different way than you are used to.
- Expect work failures, deadline misses and losing all your accumulated work in progress, or not getting credit for your work due to unknown and unforeseen circumstances.
- Only use it when you are willing to participate in the Alpha test program and do not mind sending (bug) reports in to the developers on the email list specially assigned for this purpose.


REMINDER TO ALL ALPHA TESTERS:
It's far easier for the developers to fix problems when you send message logs with the appropriate flags set. The main flags are:

<cpu_sched_debug>: problems involving the choice of applications to run.
<work_fetch_debug>: problems involving work fetch (which projects are asked for work, and how much).
<rr_simulation>: problems involving jobs being run in high-priority mode.
<sched_op_debug>: problems involving scheduler operations and other low level information.

Use these flags from the cc_config.xml file.
When sending logs, make sure to CC David, Rom, or Charlie separately, since the email list will drop attachments!

Report any problems you get with it to the Alpha email list. This list needs registration.

Reporting bugs on this forum or any project's forum isn't very productive as the developers simply do not have time to scour through all forums looking for posts with your bug reports in them. While it may happen that we - other volunteers - forward your problem to them, history has shown it is quite difficult being the middle man in this when more information is needed from you. Hence why it's better for all concerned that you report the problem directly to the developers, who will come back directly to you when they need more information or better logs or to tell you that they've checked in a fix for the specific problem.


The actual change log was taken from the Alpha email list and the Trac Timeline repository changes check-ins. This disclaimer was written by the volunteer moderators of this forum and approved of by the BOINC development team.


Change Log 6.12.40

  • client: fix a memory leak; would lose ~120 bytes each time a job is started.
  • client: fix memory leak when reading stderr of completed job. This caused 128KB + size of stderr loss for each job.
  • client: print error message if reading stderr fails (e.g. because of malloc failure).


Change Log 6.12.41


  • client (Mac): there was no error check of the creation of a memory-mapped file used for communication with an app. Add a check, and don't start the job if it fails.
