Release Notes for NorduGrid ARC 15.03 update 10

October 26, 2016

This is a minor release, introducing new features and addressing bugs discovered since release 15.03u9. The release includes all recent developments up until now excluding only those that would result in backward incompatabilities. For these a major release is expected in the beginning of next year.

Note that from next major release we will not continue support for EL5 and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. This is a consequence of significant code changes when implementing OpenSSL 1.1.0 in ARC needed for continued support of Fedora, which as of Fedora 25 moves to OpenSSL 1.1.0. In general, support of OpenSSL versions lower than 1.0.0 will be dropped. In addition legacy proxies will not be supported starting with the next major release.
