OSG Software Version 3.0.5 Has Been Released


We have reached a major milestone: RPMs are now the recommended way to install most of the OSG Software.

Today we have released OSG Software version 3.0.5. As of this release, the following components are now considered production-ready:

* The Compute Element
* The Storage Elements (Bestman, Xrootd, HDFS)

See the release notes for details.

We encourage you to try out this new RPM-based OSG Software because we believe that it is ready to work in production. As previously announced, we will only be providing critical updates to the older Pacman-based software releases. Therefore all new features will be delivered via this new RPM-based release.

You can ask support via the usual channels. If you need any help with the transition from Pacman to RPM, please feel free to ask for help.

We look forward to your feedback on this new release.
