I have an i5 Intel iMac and this morning BOINC served me a notice that there was a new version of BOINC available. I downloaded and installed BOINC 7.20.2 I run einstein@home

I also have an M1 mac mini. It also runs einstein@home. It currently has BOINC version 7.16.21. I got no notice on the M1 mac mini that a new version of BOINC was available. Clicking on "Check for new BOINC version" the BOINC on the M1 mac mini reports "There is no new version of BOINC Manager available".

What memo did I miss?

The M1 Mac BOINC package is put together by jiro. Not by the standard BOINC devs or their development automatic constant integration runs. Not in the standard sources. So doesn't come through the standard Manager interface.

I see that BOINC 7.20.2 has made the version list by now.
