I'm not a yafray user, but knowing all work since the last yafray 
update (2.43, a little bit for 2.44) in our renderer I can only assume 
it lacks support for newer features. (point cache, hair, duplicators, 
etc). We don't have verified use cases and users really. But we do have 
bug reports for this.

Keeping a yafray page on our site supported only for 2.44 would clearly 
indicate that that's the version people can use for yafray rendering, 
without the newer stuff in Blender.

Of course, if people want to work on an updated yafray binary or 
support in Blender (or at least documented where things fail), that's 
very welcome.
