The 2017 NorduGrid conference will be held in Tromsø, Norway, June 27-30.

Plenary sessons will be preceded by the usual technical workshop. Registration is open until June 19.
Fedora has decided to move to OpenSSL 1.1.0 from next release (Fedora 25). To be a able to continue supporting the newest Fedora, ARC will need to implement support for OpenSSL 1.1.0 from next major release, scheduled for beginning of next year. As significant code changes are needed, some of which are not compatible with earlier OpenSSL versions, we will have to drop support for platforms depending on OpenSSL versions lower than 1.0.0.
The consequence is that from ARC 6.0 only EL6+, Fedora12+, Debian 7+, Ubuntu 11.10+ will be supported.
In particular notice that we will not continue support for EL5 and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
