BOINC 7.12.0 available for Macintosh, Windows.

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.
- Due to the CUDA and OpenCL detection, your screen may flicker or turn off temporarily. This is normal.

System Requirements
• Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10, 32bit and 64bit.
• Mac OS X versions 10.6.0 and above, 64bit only.
• Linux, built for and current Fedora/Ubuntu/Debian/Redhat distributions, may work on others, 32bit and 64bit.

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 requires access to Google Groups, which may require a Gmail email address. To sign up with the group, click the "Apply to join group" button.

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.

Adding the possible bug to Github Issues is also an option. Github requires registration as well.


The actual change log was taken from the Alpha email list and the Github Timeline repository changes check-ins, but it can happen that changes in the list are missing, double, or misplaced. This disclaimer was written by the volunteer moderators of this forum and approved of by the BOINC volunteer development team.
