CORRECTION: Announcing OSG Software version 3.1.25 (Additional Information)

The previous announcement did not have a complete set of information. The following notice is the up-to-date announcement:

We are pleased to announce OSG Software version 3.1.25!

This is the new OSG Software distributed via RPMs for:

* Scientific Linux 5 and 6
* CentOS 5 and 6
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6

This release affects the client, compute element, GUMS servers and BeStMan SEs. Changes include:

* Gratia probes now filter and log unreasonbly huge GPU times
* GUMS now gets VOMS attributes from SSL connection to facilitate glidein authentication
* Globus log rotation performed by copy and truncate
* Updated to jGlobus 2.0.6 (BeStMan and GUMS rebuilt)
* glideinWMS 2.7.2
* VO Package v48

Also with this release, we changed the internal structure of the Yum repositories in preparation for a new OSG software release series (3.2.x, coming soon). The changes are backward compatible with the old layout and should be transparent to users. Further, the osg-release RPM, which contains the repository definitions, still works and will always be the preferred way of defining the OSG repositories. Thus, this change requires no action on your part. For more information about the preparations for OSG 3.2 and beyond, see:
