Moo! Wrapper brings together BOINC volunteer computing network resources and the Distributed.net projects. It allows a BOINC Client to participate in the RC5-72 challenge.
Releasing new version 1.5 apps
FINALLY new app version 1.5 app is released for first platforms (Windows CPU and OpenCL). Biggest improvements are newer D.net Client and BOINC upstream changed to wrapper which both bring fixes and some new features. More information can be found in the changelog post at https://moowrap.net/forum_thread.php?id=206&postid=2265#2265.
As always, please report any problems getting work or having work fail more often in the relevant forum here. Note that there can be some confusion in the BOINC Scheduler as it tries to recalculate stats for best performing app variant for you (like OpenCL vs. native GPU apps).
PS. BOINC Server has also gotten some updates from BOINC developers so there's been lots of churn lately. The server migration is also progressing.

Server migration in progress
We are in the middle of migrating our servers to a different hosting provider and this can cause sudden maintenance mode or even unexpected problems. Migration will probably still take up to a month. First problem seems to be that everything is slower as the database server has moved but the application server has not. Everything should still work as long as there's no time out.

BOINC Scheduler changes for multiple app version case
BOINC Scheduler has had problems sending different app versions to clients when there's multiple possible versions for a platform. For example, this happens when there's both OpenCL and Stream/CUDA or both 32-bit and 64-bit CPU app version available. To hopefully fix this our scheduler has been changed to send each app version until it has enough host specific speed samples. Only exception is when that version has been failing.
Please report any problems of getting work or having them fail more often in our forums. Thank you and happy crunching!
