I thought it was possible to select which applications you would run client side, that was part of the reason we made it a different application.


Yes, someone who understands the syntax of APP_INFO.XML can write one to do the new application, the old one, the unofficial new one or any combination.

How about when the new application is not under test anymore, how can the user select which application to run?

Thanks.

When the new app isn't a test app anymore (ie. it's working correctly), we won't be using the old app anymore so that will be a non-issue.

I'm looking around trying to find where I can enable this option but i'm not seeing anything... I'll email the boinc projects list to get some info (but any response will probably take awhile).

Unfortunately, there isn't just an option you can simply turn on. You have to write your own PHP code in the prefs page to show the checkboxes and add the needed <app_id> tags to the user preferences when the form is submitted.

The scheduler (which you won't have to modify) will use those tags to know what app(s) to send work of.
Please use "Reply" or "Quote" buttons on posts, instead of "reply to this thread". Keep the posts linked together ("X is a reply to Y").
