A new client version has been release for Mac. It fixes the calculation of GPU memory when running under OS 10.13 High Sierra.

I've installed 7.8.4 for High Sierra, and every time I check BOINC I see this:

SETI@home: Notice from BOINC
Task postponed: Suspicious pulse results, host needs reboot or maintenance

In addition, the screensaver no longer works at all. What does this mean? I'm not a computer expert so almost all of this goes way over my head. I like to run SETI but frankly, the BOINC app is so difficult to understand that I think a lot of people shy away from it. I'm nearly there myself... any advice???

Apple has made a security change in OS 10.13 High Sierra (released last Monday) which breaks BOINC project screensavers. I have developed a fix for this problem, but unfortunately it will require that projects relink their Macintosh graphics apps with a new graphics library and distribute the updated.

Current graphics apps will still work from the "Show graphics" button in BOINC Manager, even under OS 10.13. They just won't be visible in the screensaver.
The BOINC side fix will be in 7.8.3+, but the projects will have to rebuilt their applications in order for this fix to work.
Seti has not yet built new graphics applications because they lack someone who can do so for the Mac. (But the BOINC developer for the Mac is busy with a new client that can work with the older graphics apps, so in the near future this may be fixed)

Your notice:
This is a message that the Seti application throws, it's not something BOINC can help with. There are several threads about it on the Set forums, amongst places in this forum.
