Under the green "join this project" button on the homepage you have:

" This project uses program BOINC" with a download link to BOINC version 7.6.9... which is very old. August 2015 old.

Cheers

Yes, the home page could just point to the standard BOINC download webpage for the latest client download links.

Clear cache, or give me a link. Maybe I miss something...

Everything looks fine Krzysztof. Thanks for updating the BOINC Client download link. That should satisfy everyone with whatever platform they are on.

Now it's working fine. Didn't need to clear the cache.
I had tried on my phone earlier thinking it could be the cache but it still showed the link.
Now it's fine on all devices.

Thanks!
