I use Microsofts winget packet manager to manage most of my software. Winget has been listing BOINC to have a new version (8.0.0) for some time now. Do you know anything about it and is it recommended to upgrade to that version, yet?

My current version of BOINC: 7.24.1 (x64)

Es wurde eine neuere Version gefunden, die Installationstechnologie unterscheidet sich jedoch von der aktuellen installierten Version. Deinstallieren Sie das Paket, und installieren Sie die neuere Version.

the download page tells me

but the homepage doesn't mention version 8, yet.

BOINC 8.0 is a development or alpha version, with bugs. That's why it doesn't show as the recommended download.
See this link for its change log.
