I have multiple Raspberry Pis crunching , but ever since the recent shutdown of BHspin work generation they have been, for all intents and purposes, idle.

Is there a plan to for BHspin work to be resumed? or will this work be suspended in favor of the new BHDB?
if the latter, will there be a Raspberry Pi (running Linux) app released any time soon?

We will continue generate BHSpin tasks, but it will be on lower priority then other applications.

Thanks
For the other applications will there be raspberry pi compatible versions of the applications?

This will be problematic as 64bit ARM application doesn't looks as stable, I don't think that 32bit Raspbian one will be same. Also, BHDB will compute in weeks for one WU on RPi 1...

There are still a few projects that have Raspberry PI work; Einstein, Asteroids and Seti. As I understand it the MilkyWay app can be recompiled and run on a Raspberry Pi, which I've been meaning to try but haven't gotten around to it yet.
On my Raspberry PI3s I've set the resource share to 100% for Universe and one or more of the other three to 0 so I keep crunching something but still have a chance of getting a Universe task sometimes.

One option is to migrate any Pi3's you have to a 64bit OS as they use a 64bit CPU. This way you can run both ArmHF and AArch64 apps using multi-arch.

I'm currently running 12 RPi3's using Pi-64

And Yoyo. Although they did just update the requirements to a later BOINC version than the one that's in the wheezy repository. Finally updated my Pi2.

There is a new version 0.04 for BHspin v2 for Linux and Windows (AMD and Intel). I will be trying them with Linux, on both a Ryzen 1700 and i7-4770 shortly.

Too bad, the work at BHspin has already expired again. Hopefully there will be new WUs at the beginning of next week. My Odroids have been really happy, would not like to switch back to POGS ...

Unfortunately BHDB results are quite big files and we run out space on storage server, Currently I'm moving some data to other storage computer to make space for next batch of WU's.
Hopefully next BHSpin batch will come today :)

Still waiting for new batch of BHSpin tasks. When they will be available? Orange pi is waiting for it.
