BOINC 7.8.6 for Mac OS is now available on the primary BOINC Download Site:

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

From Charlie Fenton ...

This is a release for Macintosh only; there are no changes from 7.8.3, 7.8.4 or 7.8.5 affecting the code for any other platform. It fixes a couple of Mac-only bugs in 7.8.5:
* Reliably installs the BOINC screensaver (unless asked not to do so.)
* Fixes a bug which could prevent determining the correct size of RAM when run on versions of OS X older than OS 10.11.

I have been enrolled in Climate Prediction since 2007, with 700,000 work units. I am running the latest Mac version on BIONC. I have gotten only a couple of files to process in well over a year.

Has Climate Prediction just written off Macs entirely ?

Any suggestions for other Climate related BIONC programs to enroll in ?

Thanks

For now it appears so.

WCG has just launched a beta for a climate model. How long between beta and production though is anyone's guess. I don't know if the beta includes Macs, but for all other ongoing WCG projects, there is a Mac boinc app.
