Release Notes 5.12

GridWay 5.12 is a new stable version of the fifth series of the metascheduler.

Release date: October 2nd, 2012

Improved BES driver

The BES driver now includes Transport-level security (instead of Message-level security), all transfers are specified in JSDL (so they do not depend on globus-url-copy) and UNICORE BES endpoints are now supported.

Improved CREAM driver

The CREAM driver now takes advantage of the new QueryEvent operation in CREAM to improve job monitoring. Also, multithreading has been improved.

Support for DRMAA2 (Tech Preview)

A Technology Preview of a C binding for the new OGF's DRMAA2 specification is available, thanks to Suijian Zhou from Uppsala University.
