An update of the 7.14 release is available for testing.
This should fix screensaver and graphics problems on Mac OS X 10.15 (Catalina).

Perfect timing. I've been tracing out a continuous crash on my iMac 27" 2017 and finally figured out that Boinc appeared to be causing the problem. I downloaded 7.14.3 earlier today and will let you know if I get anymore crashes. Are there any diagnostic logs I should be running?

I'm running Catalina

For crashes, I think it's worthy to know what kind of crashes. Any error messages?

So I installed BOINC 7.14.3 and it's working (ie not causing my Catalina Mac to reboot via 7.14.2), but the graphics are mostly blacked-out. I tried to include a screen-cap in a previous attempt at a post but it wouldn't take. Yeah progress!

I am having the same issue. Upgraded from 7.14.2 to 7.14.3. Previous version worked fine.
