Revamped logging solution.
Improved security for POSIX compliant systems (only implemented for the Mac)
Add support for file compression on upload.
BOINC Simple GUI.
Added memory usage limits for BOINC applications. (Check preferences for new settings)
Though there are actually a lot more improvements than that :-)
ROSETTA@HOME really needs to update to the latest server software to let participants take full advantage of this client.
Especially as we cannot set the Memory Limits for the BOINC Application at Rosetta@home currently.
