Version 7.16.16 of the BOINC Android client has been released. This is the first new Android version in over 4 years, and is a major rewrite of the GUI. Thanks to Vitalii Koshura, Tal Regev, and Isira Seneviratne for their work on this.

The new version is available from the BOINC web site and (for Amazon Fire tablets) from the Amazon app store. It's not on the Google play store because of new restrictions imposed by Google; hopefully this will be resolved in a future version.

Remember: to update the client on Android it's best you set No New Tasks on all your projects and run the cache dry first, upload & report everything. Only then update the client, as the uninstall process on Android will delete the whole client and everything in the data directory. You will have to add the projects again afterwards.

It's too bad for outstanding Asteroids work, but let's first see if that project makes it back with its database intact.

Luckily the Androids project came back to receive all those waiting tasks. :)
