Not a bug

The primary BOINC package was recently reduced to 64-bit only. You can find the legacy 32-bit package here.

Confusing mixture of new version and legacy version in apps list

Both new version and legacy vesion of some other apps (Caesium, calibre, etc.) are listed on 64bit machine:

But things are really strange on 32bit machine:

For BOINC there is only 64bit version
For Caesium there are both 64bit and 32bit vesion
For calibre there is only 32bit vesion

I have no idea what is happening here.

For 64-bit that is expected.

For 64-bit that is expected. But John will have to have a look into the 32-bit app list issues.

I expect the intended behaviour is what you see for Calibre, where only the 32-bit package is shown.

Both fixed

I'd accidentally set BOINC to standard and BOINC Legacy 32-bit to 64-bit only. It's been fixed.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
