There was and AMD application!

The issue is that the BOINC developers still refer to them as ATI. So, rather than opencl_amd_gpu which is the proper name, the plan class has use opencl_ati_gpu which doesn't even exist. The only opencl implementation is literally named the AMD OpenCL SDK.

The old Collatz project server which had a lot of tweaks I had done to the server code and allowed both amd and ati. Since Collatz is now using the latest BOINC server code, it will take some time for me to go back and put in the fixes that were in the old one. For now, I'm just trying to get the basics working again. Just the PC apps require compiling and testing 27 applications. Each application has to run a bunch of different test workunits to make sure that all results match. In addition, each has to be tested against the new server code to make sure that the encryption is cross platform compatible.
