On the Join page http://www.gpugrid.net/join.php there is still recommended to download the version 6 of BOINC software. Am I missing some reason why version 7 is not recommended or linked?

The Join page needs to be updated. If I recall correctly, there were serious issues with earlier 6.x.y clients, so 6.12.34 was explicitly recommended.
Boinc 7.28 is the preferred version for GPUGrid at present. One benefit is that tasks automatically report after upload, which saves you creating a cc_config line to do that.
