The SETI@home project has posted version 1.06 of its Macintosh SETI@home client for analyzing radio telescope data gathered by SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) on home computers (see "SETI Brings Space Exploration to Home Macs" in TidBITS 482). The new client software, a 300K download, corrects a bug that sent and received work units without performing any analysis on the data. Although the client software design is still drawing criticism from some Mac users, version 1.06 also improves support for firewalls and proxy servers, and fixes a problem with a missing AppearanceLib file under older versions of the Mac OS. After installing the software, be sure to join the TidBITS Team!
