Just to avoid confusion, as the news entry on the front page could be misunderstood :

Make sure to update your BOINC client so that you don\'t accidentally crunch WUs that have been canceled.


does not mean \"Get a new BOINC program version\"

it rather means \"Update the project so the BOINC client knows which workunits have been cancelled\"

There is an update button in the projects list of the BOINC client.
Hilite \"Cosmology@home\" in that list and then click the \"Update\" button.

There is also a minimum core client required before tasks can be aborted by the server. So both are good advice.
