We just released BRP4 v1.24 for ATI OpenCL under Linux and Windows, and v1.25 for Win32 with CUDA, which adds a number of improvements.

For discussion on this new version, please use this thread http://albert.phys.uwm.edu/forum_thread.php?id=8888

* Fix for crashing Win 32 CUDA app
* OpenCL apps now (again) handle smaller cards with restricted capabilities correctly (max work group size < 128)

* Known issue: no OpenCL support for Mac OS X for the time being (we're still looking into a potential Apple bug)

* Please use the latest Catalyst driver (>=12.1) and BOINC client (>=7.0.26). Note that this BOINC version is still a development version (but fixes some OpenCL related problems), it can be downloaded from here:


Without updating to this BOINC version (or a newer one), you will not be able to get OpenCL work on Albert!
