Hi all, the application available here for Mac OS is not the latest release (i.e. it misses some optimization). We don't have people here with the necessary skills/resources to build it, starting from the source code available here https://bitbucket.org/francesco-asnicar/pc-boinc/.

Is there anyone who likes to volunteer? (the new version should be at least 10% faster)

In the past, I have ported and compiled SETI, SIMAP, BOINC and some other BOINC projects for several operating systems.

So, I would happy, if I can help!

Thank you, just download the source code and try to compile it, you need the BOINC libraries for this. I can provide some other validation tests (a couple of them are in the repository).

Thank you. Due the very good pre work, it was very easy to compile the application on macOS.
