We're pleased to announce OSG Software version 3.1.8. This is the new OSG Software distributed via RPMs for Scientific Linux 5 and 6, CentOS 5 and 6, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6. The changes in this release include changes that affect the client, and the compute element:

Condor 7.8.2 is a recommended security update.
A new version of the Gratia probe that fixes various bugs
A new version of osg-cleanup that fixes a bug that prevented it from cleaning up all appropriate files.
A new version of lcmaps that makes it work better with Condor. Please note that you will get an updated lcmaps configuration file that you need to merge with your existing configuration. (/etc/lcmaps.db)

VM Maintenance

We will be reorganizing the files on the VM hosts to improve performance -- most have already been done; this is the last group of changes. On Tuesday, August 7, only ITB VMs will be affected (and then only data-itb, display-itb, gratiaweb-itb, myosg-itb, rsv-itb, ticket-itb, and tx-itb). All other ITB VMs have already been reorganized. On Tuesday, August 14, the last production VMs will be reorganized. The only public-facing services experiencing downtime will be display.grid.iu.edu, tx.grid.iu.edu, and twiki.grid.iu.edu. Ticket.grid.iu.edu may experience degradation of service due to load but will remain online. Production downtime should not exceed 20 minutes.
