Keep in mind they are running with very short report deadlines right now. Until they finish the available work. At which point they will update the client and generate more work.

Redispatching results in progress. All results-to-do must now be completed in 48 hours or they will be given to somebody else. This is because we try to complete all current work ASAP. Longer deadlines will be used again when new work is submitted.

We will release new client application versions for windows and linux platforms after current work units have been done.

I think the idea is to force validation of pending results before changing clients. Seems like a great way to handle it.
