    App_Config New Feature: project_max_concurrent

    Starting with BOINC Version 7.4.9 this instruction limits the number of running jobs for a project - regardless of how many of that project's apps you are using.

    <project_max_concurrent>N</project_max_concurrent>

    This a very useful development for projects like WCG, Primegrid, BU and others that have many apps or sub-projects!

    I'm bad with version numbering - that feature is in 7.4.9. Does that mean the current version of BOINC, 7.4.27 will have that feature in there? I mean, I know that 27 >9, but 9 > 2, so I'm confused. :/

    Good question. I've seen the BOINC devs mis-number the manager versions many times. So in this case, it could mean 7.4.09 or 7.4.90. Counting properly is beyond them.

    That's the key bit of information. Thanks! I haven't upgraded yet, but will likely do so soon.

    They never use leading zeros after the decimal. Matter of fact, that's not a decimal point, it's simply a separator. So 27 > 9. (How many numbers have you ever seen with two decimal points??? Unless you're European, and then you need 3 digits between each "." )
