Hi Eric -
Just a couple of kinks noticed in your beta.
(1) Progress meter is not updating in my Boinc Manager window, on either system (one running XP SP 2, the other running Windows 7 SP 1).
(2) 4 tasks have finished early, 300 - 830 cpu sec - while 4 others are continuing in progress well beyond that as I expect they should. All 4 early tasks list as validated (min quorum=1 though) but also reported memory leaks to stderr. If the leaks were real, they seem not to have persisted. My system monitor shows no indication of orphaned memory or of memory growth tagged to any process.

More beta info,
1. stderr continues to report memory leaks on all completed tasks regardless of runtime, but there is no evidence of leak build-up on the computer. Most completed tasks finished in only a few minutes, which seems wrong (not consistent with what I see on the WU lists for your computers), and a minority take several hours, which seems right.
2. Aborted task 8174 after around 10 hrs run time, BOINC manager displaying "---" for the "Remaining" time on that task where it had been stuck for awhile. Lack of progress meter working makes interpretation of where the process is at dicey. Don't know if solution truly hung or endless-looping, or maybe the estimation algorithm for remaining time had a problem. This is the only task I have seen that behavior on so far.

Taks id 8628 http://stat.la.asu.edu/NumberFields/result.php?resultid=8628 (WU nr 8559) had also reached 100% and was still running x hours after that. Aborted that one.
Memory leaks in all other completed tasks...
Looks you've got some work to do, but that's normal with the start of a new project :)

I have 2 units with more than 7:45 of calculations and still not finished ... I do not know when they will eventually since there is no time to know when they will finally ...?

Boinctasks showing the progress correctly. Some of my WUS's running nearly 12 hours.

No, only around 160 credits. I think there is some adjusting necessary.
