OSG 1.2.14 Release Notification

OSG Operations and Integration are pleased to announce the release of OSG version 1.2.14.

The following components are affected:

* CE installations
* CEMon being used for reporting on larger sites
* OSG client and wn-client installation (due to updates to MyProxy, Fetch-CRL, Glexec, and OpenLDAP)
* Sites using Glexec

This release also incorporates smaller fixes to a variety of components distributed in the OSG stack. Although any given change is not very large, a large number of components have been updated.

Highlights of the changes include:

* setup.sh is no longer sourced by the Globus jobmanager, reducing the load and I/O on gatekeepers
* Tomcat's settings have been altered to use 512MB of memory, this helps to avoid out-of-memory error in CEMon seen by larger sites
* the vdt-updater script has been altered so that subsequent updates will not require a second backup
* Glexec has been updated and includes a fix for users that have run a grid-proxy-init instead of voms-proxy-init
* small security updates to MySQL, Apache httpd, and OpenLDAP
* LFC has been updated to 1.7.4-7

See the VDT release notice for more detailed information. Notable fixes include support for grid-proxy-init in Glexec and security fixes in MySQL, Apache, and OpenLDAP.

Update instructions can be found on the OSG Twiki under the OSG 1.2 update instructions:
