Another new one. There has already been a fix done since this one, so it probably won't be the latest for very long.

Report any problems you get with it to the Alpha email list. This list needs registration.

The official change log starting with 6.10.8...

6.10.8 -

- client: removed extra msgs

- client: on Linux, run CPU-intensive jobs with the SCHED_BATCH scheduler. Improves interactive response of system when jobs running. From Clive Messer.

- client: revert [19110]: don't delete files that fail verification; they might be partly downloaded.

- client: in GPU enumeration, separate warning msgs from GPU descriptions. Show warning msgs only if log_flags.coproc_debug

- client: for ATI enumeration, use only aticalrt.dll (amdcalrt.dll is old version w/ funky DLL names)

- client: make GPU enumeration warnings more consistent (e.g., "NVIDIA" instead of "CUDA").

- client: Add support for checking for both amd* prefixed CAL libraries and ati* prefixed CAL libraries.

- scheduler: redefine ati class plans again.

ati: CAL 1.0+, amd* prefixed libraries

ati13amd: CAL 1.3+, amd* prefixed libraries

ati13ati: CAL 1.3+, ati* prefixed libraries

ati14: CAL 1.4+, ati* prefixed libraries

- lib: fix build break.

- client: improve ATI-related msgs

- client: improve ATI description strings (from Andreas)

- client: report the different Windows 7 and Windows 2008 "R2" correctly.


6.10.9 -

- win_build: In the future be very careful about with project you choose to be the basis for a new executable. boincsvcctrl.exe was overwriting the PDB file for boinc.exe which causes all call stack handling code for boinc.exe to stop working.


6.10.10 -

- client: fix crashing bug in GPU message display

- client: show a couple more config flags on startup

- client: fix bug in CPU prefs enforcement: enforce "suspend if no recent input" and "exclusive apps" only if overall mode is RUN_MODE_AUTO (run according to prefs)

- client/scheduler/web: add per-project preferences for whether to accept CPU, NVIDIA and ATI jobs. These prefs are shown only where relevant:

e.g., only for processor types for which the project has app versions, and if it has versions for only one type, no pref is shown.

These prefs affect both client and scheduler. The client won't ask for work for a device blocked by prefs, and the scheduler won't send it. This replaces earlier optional project-specific prefs for "no CPU jobs" and "no GPU jobs". (However, these prefs continue to be honored on the server side).

- client: if NVIDIA driver is unknown, say that rather than 0

- client: add missing Windows SKUs. From Robert Kre?

I was right it seems to have lasted less than a day. It has been superceeded by 6.10.11. I won't bother starting a new message thread.

There have been reports about 6.10.11 crashing on Windows 7 x64

The official change log for 6.10.11 is:

- client: fix crash with <ncpus>0</ncpus>
- client: fix bug in coproc summary string.

Running it for two days on Win 7 x64. Still no any crashes...

The only thing is sad to me that in 6.10.3 I could uncheck a checkbox "Use GPU while...." and it worked just fine: GPU was being used during web surfing and office-like PC using, and was not being used during gaming or smth... Now it's not the same in this new version.
