Dear Administrators and Programmers of the Project.

I wrote new port of BOINC for Android OS. It is called as NativeBOINC and available at http://krzyszp.info/matszpk/
(and source code available at https://github.com/matszpk/native-boinc-for-android/).
Currently, I rewrote 5 port of applications:
Primegrid Cullen/Woodall Sieve (gcwsieve)
Primegrid The Riesel Problem Sieve (sr2sieve)
Milkyway@Home
Enigma@Home (unfortunatelly this project are shutdown)
WUProp@Home Data collect v3

I encourage you to rewrite your application to new BOINC platform (Android)
for BOINC community. I believe that it can help to popularize my and your project.
BOINC API for these platform available at http://krzyszp.info/matszpk/boinc_api/, and you can use it during rewriting
your applications.

Some notes for programmers: unfortunatelly ARM processors are slow and has problems
with FPU operations. Heavy (mainly FPU) operations needs real optimizations in assembly to reach
acceptable performance.
