My first two WUs with v102.00 on Android (Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1) crashed half way through, possibly in connection with suspension due to low battery.

Could be a coincidence, but I have had no problems with v101. We'll see as the next two WUs are running now.

I moved my 1090T (64 bit Linux Mint 15) on to the project and it is completing
WUs 2x faster with the new optimized app.

My 2600K (64 bit Linux Mint 15) is "only" 30% faster with the new app.

Nothing was changed before and after (old app vs new app). Hyperthreading was on and I was running GPUgrid.

No big deal, I just thought is was interesting.

The next two WUs finished without problems, but they had sufficient battery level.

Runtime with v102 approximate two thirds of v101.

Message 1482 - Posted: 11 Aug 2013, 12:31:24 UTC - in response to Message 1450.  

Is the 'restart from checkpoint' time fixed/optimized in the new builds?:
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=68

(I can't test this on XP 32-bit since there is no new app for 32-bit Windows:
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/apps.php
)

Also there is no more (debug) info in stderr.txt
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/result.php?resultid=9908769

e.g.:
Restarting at XX%
Pre-calculations done in SSS seconds
...
Main loop done in ZZZ seconds
Results found:
...
called boinc_finish

We need some more tests especially on win xp 64 bit and w2003 64 bit.

And Kyong must reconfigure server side of project to correctly detect client and distribute app.

Again, any news on the mac front?
Since the mac apps are relatively new, I assume that means you have been able to build them recently, in which case what is stopping mac builds of the optimised code?
I'm crunching on both mac and win, and the time difference is noticeable.

I have to write Dotsch about compiling new version, I still have no MacOS for tests so MacOS version will be later.
