BOINC 7.4.42 released for Windows and Mac

Mon, 07/27/2015 - 20:38

I have been running the 7.4.42 version on Yosemite (10.10.3) without issue until the past two weeks.

With Apple's latest update of 10.10.4, I have seen my boot ups hang once again on a percentage of the Late-2013 iMacs. (12 computers out of 38 in the lab).

On the older Late-2011 iMac Models running this version of BOINC, I get kernel panics which force a reboot and then once again hang before getting to the login screen. This is on 100% of the 10 iMacs in this particular lab.

I have sent these kernel crash reports, which clearly list BOINC as the offending process, to Apple and will be opening a formal bug report with them also.

If there are any logs that you would like to see, let me know and I will forward them to you.
