Installation Notes ::

This is the third release of the UMD-1 that is made available for EGI's production infrastructure. All products in the UMD 1.2.0 release were verified against EGI's current Quality Criteria (for further information, please see the documentation links) to support 64bit Scientific Linux 5 (x86_64 processor architecture). For more information on EGI's Software Provisioning process, see MS508 and MS409.

Installation notes and known issues are collected on a per-product basis, and are available in the EGI WIKI. When browsing the EGI Repository, each product available in this release will provide a link to the respective entry in the mentioned Wiki space, providing specific information about any issues discovered during Verification and/or StagedRollout. 

When using the UMD repository for the first time, your systems need to be configured to access the appropriate repositories in a specific manner. Installation instructions and configuration options are described at this location.

If you are upgrading from previous UMD releases (e.g. 1.0.0, or 1.1.0) then in-place upgrades are supported. Please consult the product specific documentation referenced at the individual product's announcement pages listed below.

Known Issues ::

As this is the third release of UMD-1, and uses a different structure than previous releases of new products, each product must be installed from scratch as in-place updates are not supported for non UMD releases.  Additional installation notes and known issues are collected on a per-product base, and are available in the EGI Wiki (see Additional Details for more information)
