The second release candidate of ARC 6 is available. Since the first release candidate (22.03.2019) a few issues were discovered and fixed.
We are happy to announce that the first release candidate of ARC 6 is ready for download from the NorduGrid repository. ARC 6 contains major improvements in the deployment, configuration and maintenance of ARC CE. It also comes with new features and services while some legacy features have been removed. To start with ARC 6, please visit the dedicated page that contains installation instructions, configuration help, technical notes and pointers to support channels.
A small update NorduGrid ARC 15.03u20 to Nordugrid ARC is now available, mainly to address a problem causing job failures in certain circumstances. In addition some build fixes are included related to openssl 1.1.1 and python, new ARCHERY endpoint types are added to the endpoint retrieval plugin and monitor, and a fix related to GLUE2 is included. The updated packages are available for download from our repositories if you have the updates repository enabled.
Registration is open for the NorduGrid 2019 Conference and ARC technical workshop, which will be held in Lund, Sweden, on June 11-14, 2019. Everybody interested in using ARC and contributing to its evolution is very much welcomed! Participation is free of charge.
