OSX/SMP client gets an update for Snow Leopard.
Adam Beberg has posted a new version of the OSX/SMP client to resolve compatability issues with OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard). This version has been named v6.26.

  • Updated launchd file generator.
  • Prefpane start/stop for new 10.6 launchd files.
  • Remove buffer overflow from chemists using unsafe string functions, new 6.26 client included.
  • Installer redone from scratch due to 10.6 PackageMaker.
  • Cleanup deprecated Cocoa methods.

This new package includes client version 6.26, but due to the changes to the installer and files it will not work on versions of OSX earlier than 10.6. System Preferences will still restart in 32-bit mode, as the method for making 64-bit versions has not yet been revealed to Adam!

If you wish to test, the client can be downloaded from the link below. Please report any bugs with the installer or the new client at the earliest opportunity ;)

New 6.26.1 update available :
  • Revamp of the prefpane backend by Calxalot, HelperTool, more 10.6 newness.
  • New uninstall.sh script in the /Applications/Folding@home.app if you want it, read it first.
