And all this for DHE is confusing as the project is still releasing WU's and uploading with all server processes running.

The only thing not running is the Credit stream and Credit exports

Seems like a wonderful group with good intentions and their data center appears to be active and doing significant work in house.

I signed up for BOINC@TACC and have never gotten a WU as most users have never gotten a WU (this would be external work)

Hi All,


The main CPDN project will be taken offline tomorrow, Wednesday 29th May, at 15:30 (UK time). This is in order to perform an upgrade of backend server code. This offline period will last for up to a week. This is in order to allow time for a dump of the database to take place and sufficient time for rollback to take place (if necessary).

Best regards,

Andy


Well tomorrow is Wednesday and that will be one week.... we will see how accurate their crystal ball is !

Project announcements.. I have posted messages on the message boards of projects with BOINC ARM applications and WU's to publicize the availability of BETA 7.14.1 in the Play Store and referenced the process URL to become a BETA tester.

The intent is to get additional BETA testers / Users looking at the new version.

I have one User who has a large farm of ARM devices who has started an upgrade process on them. He crunches on at least 5 projects that support ARM devices.

Do you have a count on BETA testers or systems running the BETA version 7.14.1 ??

How are we doing as far and validating stability ?

I have not experienced any negative behavior on my somewhat basic Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)

I have been running the BETA 7.14.1 version for several days. I downloading it from the Play Store as a BETA tester. Running on two year old 4 core Samsung entry level phone.

ARMv7 Processor rev 3 (v7l) [Impl 0x41 Arch 7 Variant 0x0 Part 0xc07 Rev 3], OpenCL GPU Mali-T720 (1379MB) driver: 1.02, Android 3.10.9-12390409 (Android 7.1.1)

Currently there are no locations to Post BETA comments for Android 7.14.1 so I will post here.

Loaded successfully as an Upgrade from 7.4.53 no issues noted. Event log now getting some extra entries that appear to have no function or purpose in the Android environment.

And ... AFTER I asked the question overnight Google Play updated my App to 7.14.1.

So being a registered Beta tester will get you an automatic download and update.
