3) Message boards : BOINC client : BOINC 7.16.5 for Win, 7.16.6 for Mac released to the public (Message 98766)

I have a pair of Win 7 32bit systems that are running on 7.16.3. Which I had thought was going to be the last Win 32 version ? But when I look at the All Versions download list it shows 7.14.2 as the current recommended version.

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

Did I miss something and was 7.16.3 for 32 bit pulled back ? Or is the Download page missing an update ?

Thanks

Bill,
I am signed up for the Beta, but I am still seeing 7.4.53. Previously it was showing 7.14.1. Is this a recent change?


I suspect that it is. How long have you been signed up ? And what version of Android are you running ?

As I understand it some of the newer Versions have had some issues with the 7.16.x roll out but I have no specifics.

Overnight about a week ago I was auto-updated to 7.16.5. But I have an older phone running Ver 7

Thanks
Bill


Hi Bill

7.16.3 was working fine for me on SETI, but when I attached to Einstein, it massively over fetched work (partly my fault), and the Tasks panel or tab went almost completely blank

See my detailed feedback in https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=13490


Hi Keith

Most of the people on that forum have more depth and experience than I do. I have been at it quite awhile but almost all of it as a user / tester not a developer.

For my Computing Preferences for general use including my Android phone I have been using 0.5 Plus 1.0 additional. This has worked good for me on everything from Fast new AMD64's with an NVIDIA card to old 32 bit Window's boxes that were released with a Win Vista OS on them.

Best of Luck and Stay Safe
Bill

Well my old Samsung, J3 2016, downloaded 7.16.5 via auto update for a BETA tester and since my phone is running an older Android OS 7.1.1 it is doing fine. The most noticeable change is that BOINC Icon is now always visible on the upper corner of my screen. I am running 6 projects on it currently with no noted errors.

Reviewed Log notes and they are clean of errors and exceptions. BOINC is auto loading at time of phone boot / power cycle.

So far it has been quite a few days without complaint.

Universe@Home just went through a server upgrade to newer BOINC software and yes they are figuring out bugs.

It is a one man all volunteer shop ... with no funding so be patient as he gets things fixed.

For current users the upgrade includes the requirement to "authorize" export of your stat's to an external group like BOINCstats. Current members have to access their account profiles and check the box to allow export.

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)
