Howdy! A new version for Linux. The Boinc self-existentialistic-check will experience it as 7.16.10

I thought something strange

I thought something strange was going on.  When I updated my Ryzen 2700 (Ubuntu 18.04.5), I got a whole boatload of new work, even though my buffer is set to the default of 0.1 + 0.5 days.  I now have about a week (Universe and WCG).

It often goes berserk with new versions of BOINC these days, ever since 7.15.

EDIT: I first noticed the problem on WCG some time ago, and posted on it there.  I happens on the other projects too, but not quite as much.  I have not checked it on Einstein.

There is a 7.16.11 to fix

There is a 7.16.11 to fix issues with the project list coming up blank. I don’t think Gianfranco has picked it up yet. I haven’t heard of any other issues so far.

if you find issues you should report them to the boinc_alpha mailing list so the developers can look into it.

Have you seen this behavior?  Are you on 7.16.10?

Most of my machines are on 7.16.1 which is the latest Debian have in buster-backports. The 7.16.15 (really 7.16.10) is available in the next release (bullseye) or testing.

I noticed a work-fetch issue when used with a <max_concurrent> tag in app_config. The initial work fetch would work fine and it would compute until it thought it was going to run out of work and then it would continually ask for more work. It was supposedly fixed in 7.16.5.
