No any breakthroughs? I cannot believe that.

Science progress does not depend on breakthroughs but on patient work, often unrewarded. The French call it "piocher".

Well, actually I mean major discoveries or at least some kind of a discovery. PrimeGrid has found many new prime numbers, hasn't it? How about the other BOINC projects? World Community Grid's Help Defeat Cancer is over. Did it find anything?

If you go to their site you'll find a lot of information on what has been done and what they are planning to do next. I am running Einstein@home in the hope of detecting a gravitational wave from a pulsar and QMC@home in applying the MonteCarlo method to the study of organic molecules. I haven't seen any breakthrough so far and I am not expecting any. But I am still plodding ahead. There is a new BOINC project. Lattice, which seems very promising but I don't have the computing power to enlist. My PII is already overloaded. Cheers.

World Community Grid:
FightAIDS@home Currently is lab testing results from previous tests.
Genome Comparison Currently is analysing the results.

Primegrid:
Million digit prime number found... 13th largest known prime to date

I've forgotten the link(s), but aren't there several projects (like S@H and Folding@Home) proven to be faster/more powerful than certain supercomputers? That would be an accomplishment.
