A bit confused as to why this is in the GPU section of the fora?

Apple has moved from OpenGL to Metal2+ i guess.
i don't know much about it, but i would think that Apple platforms would be worth the trouble, or not?

All you need is a volunteer with the inclination to do it.

The next version of BOINC will be compatible with OS X Catalina.

So, I don't know if this is related, but I've been using version 7.14.2 without a hitch on Catalina until yesterday (2/2520) when my computer started repeatedly rebooting due to an "error while booting." Since I had BOINC on auto-start it took me awhile to figure out that it was causing the problem.

Is 7.16.3 the version that's supposed to work with Catalina?
