NorduGrid ARC 13.11 "Felix" release is now available from our repositories. This changes the following component versions: Nordugrid ARC to 4.0.0, Nordugrid ARC doc to 1.3.4, Nagios probes for ARC CE to 1.7.0, and Common Authentication Library caNl++ to 1.0.1. There have been several bugfixes and backwards-incompatible updates with this version, more details in the release notes.
IMPORTANT: New IGTF CA packages v1.55 are available from the NorduGrid repositories. In this release, the NorduGrid CA certificate is updated. This may cause problems if you have the CA certificates installed in your Web browser. When using a browser you MUST first remove the previous NorduGrid CA certificate before installing the new certificate.
NorduGrid participates in the Supercomputing '13 research exhibit. Visit our booth (nr. 1239) to learn how ARC helps in search for new particles and in harnessing HPC power for the needs of CERN computing.
This year's Nobel Prize in Physics is the first to which ARC has proudly contributed. The theoretical work of Professors Englert and Higgs was supported by experimental data from ATLAS and CMS experiments at LHC, and ARC played a notable role in processing and analysing these data, as well as producing simulated data. Above 5% of all ATLAS and 9% of all CMS computing power has been provided via ARC, and these numbers are growing, as large HPC sites turn to ARC in order to provide computational support to LHC. Let's hope that this Nobel Prize is not the last that ARC will enable!
