Change Log 5.10.31, December 19, 2007

The sole purpose of this release is to fix a very serious memory leak which occurred if the BOINC Manager window was left open to the Projects or Tasks tab in Grid View. If the leak was allowed to continue long enough, it consumed all the available memory in the system. The result was that the computer became unresponsive and needed a reboot.

This problem seems to have occurred only under OS 10.5 Leopard.

The fix required us to upgrade from wxWidgets version 2.6.3 to 2.8.7 for building the Manger. Because this is a substantial change, there is a real danger that it may have introduced new bugs to the Manager.
