This session is rendered very slowly in a step-by-step manner in order to create, observe and correct the Mac client software.

Can you say when you might be releasing more WUs on this?

Is it just me or is this session not progressing at all ?
Also why is it the only one active while there are many on the queue, especially if it's only for Mac ?

I've read it but I don't understand if this session is blocking the rest of the queue or not. If so, since it has been uploaded more than 3 months ago and it's only at 4.8%, are we just going to have to wait for months ?

There already have been running other sessions meanwhile, it's not that this one here is blocking anything.
Regarding the thread here, there are probably some issues with the Mac client which are still unsolved - and probably more as mentioned since there is no progress so far.

It's not holding anything up, sessions have to be approved manually by an admin before they start rendering. The backlog in the session list is explained at the following post:
