OSG Software release 3.0.3


I'm pleased to announced the general availability of OSG Software, release 3.0.3 (a.k.a. VDT). This is the new OSG Software distributed via RPMs for Scientific Linux 5, CentOS 5, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This release includes the Client, Worker Node Client, and glexec.

Release notes and pointers to documentation can be found at:

(You'll note that 3.0.3 was originally released a week ago--no changes have been made, other than declaring that the clients and glexec are ready for general production use.)

As many of you know, we are phasing in our new software distribution. Today we are announcing the general release of our clients and glexec, and we will be gradually releasing more software between now and mid-December. Some software is in "limited release" (that is, a production release, but intended for early adopters and not widely announced), so you may notice details about it in the release notes.

You can ask support via the usual channels. We look forward to your feedback on this new release.
