New BOINC Android client released
Version 7.16.16 of the BOINC Android client has been released. This is the first new Android version in over 4 years, and is a major rewrite of the GUI. Thanks to Vitalii Koshura, Tal Regev, and Isira Seneviratne for their work on this.

The new version is available from the BOINC web site and (for Amazon Fire tablets) from the Amazon app store. It's not on the Google play store because of new restrictions imposed by Google; hopefully this will be resolved in a future version.
