Working on it. Eric.

If you need someone to test this new executable let me know, i have a Macbook Pro Core i7 ready for testing.
Also, i'm still not getting any work units on my pc 'Project has no tasks available' even though the server status website says 803 tasks ready to send.

Edit: It now says 0 tasks ready to send so never mind

It looks like there is a small misunderstanding of the situation.
The only available MAC executable has probelms and therefore it was withdrawn.
There is no older version available as far as I understand the situation.

Meens: As long as there is no new one released to public you won't get work even if there would be 100000 WUs available because there is no suitable executable for your system.

Hope I got that right, if not feel free to correct me.

Christoph, Arjan also has a Windows computer as well and it has not picked up any work since the 10/7/12, that is the system he can't get work on.

Thanks for the hint. I thought since this is a Mac thread and he is talking about his new toy that his problem is there.

Indeed the MAC executable will be a new feature. We have
found and solved one problem giving a bus error. There is
at least one more similar problem. Due to vacation it will
be a week or before we can try again. Eric.

Waiting to get some work for my MacBook Pro, keep at it OK? Do you have anything that will run on my iPad too? Probably too much to hope for.

Me too; when my colleagues return from vacation and other business I expect
to have a MAC executable early September. I fervently hope so anyway.
Hang in there. Eric.
