There are several new BOINC versions ready to download
We got a new BOINC release to crunch with on Windows, Mac OS X and Android.
Until now the recommended version was 7.16.11 for Windows and Mac OS X, released on 8th September 2020. Since then several new versions have been released for MacOS, nameley 7.16.14, 7.16.17, 7.16.18 and now 7.16.19. For Windows we now received the bugfix release 7.16.20.
Also the Android version received a huge update to BOINC 7.18 and is now available on F-Droid and the Amazon Appstore.
While the new Windows release is rather a minor release to tackle certificate and connection errors some projects have been experiencing, the releases for Android and Mac OS have accumulated some more changes. Noteworthy is especially the rising support for M1 Macs.
Here are the download links to the new stable version:
