I've updated the OSX applications (i686 and x86_64). Let me know if they're working. I think this will solve a problem we've been having with some types of workunits not crunching correctly.

I don't know if we're going to continue supporting the PPC version actually. We don't have access to a PPC mac, and the newer versions of OS X (and BOINC for that matter) have deprecated the code needed to compile the PPC application...

By the way, does this fix the progress bar issues for particularly large WUs as well? IIRC Cluster Physik said it was just a case of switching from a 32-bit to a 64-bit variable. Presumably all apps need the fix (though a large part of the userbase will already be using one of the fixed optimized applications).

I'll have that fixed in the new apps coming out. We should be releasing new versions of the apps (and new source code) in the upcoming week. We're going to be testing some new background models for the Milky Way and the code is pretty much ready to go live now.

Hi,

The version 0.26 for OS X seems buggy. My WU keep reset and calculates from 0.00% when it is restarted from suspend. Hope this can be fixed in the next version.

Definitely looks like checkpointing was not implemented as I aborted the unit after 13 hours and several restarts of the crunching.
