It would help if Boinc autoupdated like every other single piece of software that exists.  I often report a problem only to find someone has a newer version than me which I wasn't informed had been created.

If this page takes an hour to load, reduce posts per page to 20 in your settings, then the tinpot 486 Einstein uses can handle it.

A user named Bill something posted on every Boinc website that there was a new version when it came out, mostly it was in the Number Crunching section. It was here in the Crunchers Corner Thread:

Updated BOINC Clients 7.16.11 - Windows 64-bit and Mac OS X (64-bit Intel) 3 5 weeks 6 days ago 4 weeks 3 days ago

Not really sensible to expect everyone to read every post.  I only read replies to ones I've subscribed to, and occasionally spot something interesting while searching for something else.  Many others don't even use the forums.  As I said, every other piece of software, even freeware, updates itself or at least informs you it's available.

It also does inform you in the Boinc Notices we talked about the other day that you see in your Boinc Tasks everytime their is an update.

Oh and V-Box does not auto update either because doing so can destroy things in progress.

That doesn't always work.  I've been a few versions behind without it telling me.

It could at least ask you, or wait until no VB tasks are running.

Boinc never gives out the latest VB anyway, I always have to get that manually!

Boinc is like an Austin Healey, a useful tool, but it needs a lot of coaxing.
