Render progress bar & Yafray query

Hi guys!!

slowly and steadily ,I am getting a hang of this software,. gr8

I would like to know, does have a render progress bar, that indicates the status of the current render. coz, i just couldnot see it anywhere. if its there it would be a very hepful cue to know that " oh… the render is still in progress and not frozen or something"

also I am unable to get any output from Yafray. Blender internal render works fine. Yafray gives me a black screen… am I missing something.

Thanks

yes, you are missing yafray FAQ:

and a good compilation of yafray examples to play with:
