The BOINC development team is recruiting alpha testers for the latest version of the BOINC client software, which should be released soon. It's very important that a small group of knowledgable BOINC users go through ALL the tests first to be sure that it all works as it should, before releasing to the rest of the world. Here are details:

Howdy Folks,

I have enabled account creation in the BOINC Alpha project to encourage greater participation and test coverage. If you do not already have an account in the BOINC Alpha project and want one, please sign-up.

BOINC Alpha URL: http://isaac.ssl.berkeley.edu/alpha

Instructions for testing: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/AlphaInstructions

Test Matrix: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/TestMatrix

We really need more Mac and Linux testers.

Thanks in advance.

----- Rom


P.S. I hope someone will create a Pirates team for the alpha testers.

When I saw the Alpha top testers list for the first time, my initial thought was: "Oh no, not another competition!" ... quickly followed by 'Damn, Alex did better than me!" ;-)
