Yes, there is a lot of historical "inertia" in BOINC development.

But there are still a couple of active developers still working out and merging bug fixes in the master branch code.

One important one was the overfetch bug when max_concurrent statemements were in play. That finally qot squashed after 10 years.

But unfortunately unless you build the client from the master branch yourself, most Linux users rely on their distro managers to package BOINC and they are always woefully behind the current master branch.

Only Windows users seem to get updated client installations because the devs only have CI builds for Windows running. Linux users have to fend for themselves.

You can't blame BOINC for your problem at Einstein.

They use their own proprietary server software that is years old compared to the current BOINC master branch code.

Same goes for all other projects not running the latest server code. You just have to make your own personal adjustments for how the client reacts with all the different versions of server software the projects run.

Bothering to sign up, do a bit of crunching, just to post some spam nobody will pay attention to. Are you actually the website owner, or a dissatisfied customer trying to get them in trouble? Either way you won't get anywhere.

And now on older cards too. Anything OpenCL 1.2 (R9 280X era) and up. Slow compared to CPU, but they're working on it.
