Release Notes

This release contains the following products:
gLite Platform (Provided by EMI):
Compute services:
  • CREAM sub-components: 
    • BLAH 1.16.5: This updates of BLAH fixes a problem with the new BLparser that can happen under high load. It also addresses an issue with the new BLParser with LSF: bhist is not used anymore and therefore the load caused by the bupdater is much lower than before. This new BLAH version also enables the submissions to Torque version 2.5.8
Storage services:
  • DPM MySQL 1.8.3: Added thread safe CSEC_MECH. Packaging is now Fedora compliant. Added synchronous dpm_get support. Added support for MySQL 5.5 for the db creation script. SRMv1 is now disabled by default. Added sample my.cnf configuration file. New HTTP/DAV frontend daemon.
  • dCache 1.9.12-13: Fixed several bugs in the pools, in particular restoring compatibility with ARC concerning http compliance and ensuring forward compatibility of https movers. The admin interface was improved to support changing terminal sizes after login. We also improved several logging issues such asa noisy but harmless null pointer exceptions in xrootd, webdav, ftp, gridftp, and kerberosftp
Data management services:
