The Apps that are published here are meant for "power users", i.e. people who more or less know what they
are doing with their computers and with BOINC. The instructions are short, if there are any at all, and not
suitable for beginners. Support from the project team is limited.
These Apps usually trade in some features
or compatibility we want to keep in the official Apps for speed, or run on rather exotic OS for which we
can't provide much support. The Apps have been tested by the project so far that they run successful on
at least one configuration (usually the one that they have been built on) and don't pose a danger to the
project. They usually come with an app_info.xml file that uses the anonymous platform, assigns a valid
application name and a serial number that allows us to easily keep track of these results in the database.
Use them at your own risk (i.e. credit).
