The MAC BOINC client does not update itself. The new version is developed and tested by BOINC developers, Once it has been tested by the developer it is released to a group of volunteer testers who are willing to try to break it. If and when it passes that round of testing it is put forward as a improved version for release to the BOINC community at large as a new Recommended version.

After it is out world wide for a couple weeks it is usually pretty bullet proof.

Of course you have to download the version that matches your hardware and OS level.

This is the version of BOINC Client that you load / loaded on your Mac back then. As it is a manually loaded app by the User there is no Auto update.

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.

Can the selection process of "The User of the Day" be adjusted to require an Average Credit on some project or on Rosetta to be greater than zero ?

Today's User of the day has a Zero Average across 10 Projects.

Thanks

Post:
Badges for recognition of levels of work completed can be a positive recognition of work completed and machines committed. This is a form of positive feedback for volunteers who do not work for coins but only for science.

Thanks
