New v1.4 apps for nVidia OpenCL and Android
More apps based on v1.4 of wrapper code are now available.
First there are Android apps with both non-PIE (for pre-4.1) and PIE (for 4.1 and later, especially 5) versions. Android apps are no longer in beta so everybody should get them but please report any problems at the new Android forum http://moowrap.net/forum_forum.php?id=27.
Secondly there's a new nVidia OpenCL app available for Windows. This brings the same level of support for nVidia GPUs that was previously available only for AMD GPUs. The Linux versions are on the list next and will be deployed soon.

New app v1.4 with OpenCL support deployed
Finally we have a newer application version that supports OpenCL! Updated versions of both AMD/ATI Stream and OpenCL apps for Windows have been offered by our server since yesterday to participants meeting requirements.
These apps require BOINC Client v7.2.28 or newer and Windows XP or newer. The Stream app is not available to AMD Radeon HD 7870/7950/7970/R9 280X series (Tahiti) or newer cards due to compatibility issues. OpenCL app is preferred for those cards.
The old app version is still available for systems running older BOINC Client. However, if your system has multiple GPUs, please consider updating it's BOINC Client to a support version. There are known issues running the old app on systems with multiple GPUs. New apps fix these by running one cruncher per device.
For detailed app change history, please read application changelog. For latest requirements enforced by our server, please read latest requirements.
Please report any problems you might encounter with new apps and our changes. Especially if you no longer get any work from our server where you previously did. You can report them by posting at our forum.

We have badges!
As a result of our recent server code update, we can now have badges. I've enabled the badge assignment task and first ones are now granted and getting exported in our stats. You can also see them all over our website where users are mentioned.
Badges in use are the default user and team gold/silver/bronze badges for top 1%/5%/25% RAC. Please let me know if you have any ideas for other badges. Preferably with cool icons to use.
Happy crunching while hunting those badges!
