In the 3 month, i've used the BOINC manager, updated to
5.10.43 .

One thing, not very important, i noticed, graphics are beïng displayed properly now.
On 5.10.30 graphs are 'shifted' to the left, in the
sreensaver.
For the rest, it seems STABLE.

Most of us that populate this NC board don't do graphics. If we also do SetiBeta we might, and I stress the might, look at them when testing a new version of the app.

I thought the screen saver was handled by the science app and not BOINC?

And I thought the science app provided graphics, to be handled/'touched' by BOINC?

Sometimes the graphics line up on their own. They will get off center again eventually. I have seen the shifted graphics in version 6.00 already.

Yes, and Einstein@home’s “Power User” apps—at least the Mac versions I’ve recently installed—do also.

You are right, i draw a conclusion too early.

I'll have to use an optimized version, to see a speed boost.

And the graphics, the "sreensaver" , lookes the same as previous versions.
They tend to shift to the RIGHT side of the 'BOX' .
