7) Message boards : Number crunching : CPDN No Longer Supporting Mac BOINC Clients ?? (Message 62199)
Posted 5 Mar 2020 by Art Masson
Post:
OK, Thanks.
Then it's safe to say that Mac's running the most current supported version of MacOS (Catalina) can no longer process CPDN files.
Assume there is no plan to enable 64-bit CPDN apps.

Les -- Is there a current place to check if Batch jobs are still active (or not)? I have a another task for Batch 791 that I suspect may be closed as well....

Note that the previous testing build for MacOS BOINC Version 7.16.3 has been withdrawn.....

The latest build for testing can be downloaded here: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_7.14.3_x86_64-apple-darwin.zip

Note that BOINC 7.14.3 is only being released for Macintosh. It is basically the same as 7.14.2, but with the following fixes for compatibility with OS X 10.15 Catalina:
* Additional security review by Apple required by OS 10.15 for installation
* Installer
* Screensaver

BOINC 7.14.3 is expected to work correctly on MacOS 10.7 through MacOS 10.15.3.

David Anderson has reported that there is a major bug with GPU detection in test release 7.16.4. As a result the test release has been withdrawn. Expect to see BOINC 7.16.5 released for Windows 64 bit testing soon!

Hi Jim1348 -- I've reported this to the BOINC testing/development team. Will advise if/when I get a reply.

Dave -- Yes, I'll check on that 7.16.3 32-bit version as well. I'm assuming that release 7.16.x is ultimately intended to only work on 64 bit Operating Systems, and that 7.16.3 as a 32-bit test version will eventually be removed -- as it was made available for testing before the decision to make 7.16.x a 64-bit product only. But I will check it out with the BOINC testing group !!

BOINC Release 7.16.x (when it is released for primary use) is intended to only work on 64-bit Operating Systems. This new newest version of the BOINC client (7.16.4) is released FOR TESTING ONLY for 64-bit Windows.

Users who are continuing to use 32-bit Operating Systems will need to continue to use the current 7.14.2 BOINC release after 7.16.x is released for recommended use.

The 7.16.4 development test version for Windows 64-bit is now available on the primary BOINC download site:
