The extra buttons on the GUI are a nice touch.

Additional buttons on the Boinc GUI

Yes, they give easier acces to the web page. It would be nice if other projects followed suit.

Seti and Climate already have, others will soon follow!

But...
Einsteins are really excessive, and you can't scroll, so I had to make my window bigger just to test them all. Fortunately I don't need them myself that often, as most of it is bookmarked on my browser anyway ;)

I also suggested a "help" button on the web pages to go to the documentation I had for them ... was never great stuff, but it is better than nothing ...

Oh, well ...

From BOINC checkin

From BOINC checkin notes:

Rom 22 July 2005
- Enable scrollbars on the task pane
- Only redraw the website buttons when a selection change event has
occurred with the list pane.

BOINC client/clientgui packages built using this (or later) code will have a scroll bar that enables all the buttons to be visible.

I'd like the client to go back to the old interface (circa 4.19) where you right clicked on a project then got a drop down menu. Then Winodoze / K / Gnome etc would put up a context menu that fitted on the screen.

(Before anyone says, yes the under-the bonnet features of the latest client are much better than those on 4.19, but I still say the interface itself was friendlier)

The right click functionality and the column sort are things that were brought up as soon as the new GUI was released many months ago. I guess they are either a very low priority, or the wx widgets (whatever that is) doesn't allow for it.
