OSG Software 3.0.4 release


I'm pleased to announced OSG Software version 3.0.4. This is the new OSG Software distributed via RPMs for Scientific Linux 5, CentOS 5, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The changes in this release include changes that affect the existing general production release of VOMS, the Client, the Worker Node Client, and glexec. In particular:

* We've updated Globus to a new version that will be compatible with Globus 5.2 when it moves into EPEL in 2012. This required us to rebuild all the packages that link against Globus. There are few functional changes in Globus, but there are bug fixes.

* The CA certificates have been updated to fix a minor packaging problem, but not their content. We expect the IGTF 1.24 update to be released in early January after further testing in our internal OSG integration testbed.

* We have also released some new software as a "limited production release"--details are in the release notes.

Release notes and pointers to documentation can be found at:

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