Can BOINC auto-update itself when a new version becomes available?

What about the cruncher software - will it automatically downloaded when a new version becomes available?

The BOINC core has to be manually updated.

The SETI@Home (or other projects if you have more than one attached) component will automatically update.

Hope this helps *smile*

They won't make the CC auto update due to security reasons.
