Managing Globus Updates in EPEL

Globus 5.2.2

Globus Toolkit 5.2.2 in EPEL testing - 26 Jul 2012

  • Mattias announcement
Updated packages for GT 5.2.2 are available in EPEL testing. - [[http://bit.ly/globus_5_2_2][Link toEPEL Update]]

Developers of EMI packages using globus libraries and services should
check that the new version works with their software.

The most significant change in this release is that the
globus-ftp-client library now enables gridftp2 by default if supported
by the server. This means that the patch (originally from VDT) applied
to the previous version to allow enabling gridftp2 using an environment
variable has become obsolete and has been dropped. So those that were
relying on this method to enable gridftp2 should take extra care to test
that the new version works as expected for them (this applies to FTS,
and possibly others).

EMI third-party protection for Globus 5.2.1 - 30 Jul 2012

  • the protection on the EMI third-party repositories for the Globus 5.2.1 is activated.
  • PTs with dependencies on the Globus 5.2.2 update should test them using the epel-testing repositories and send the outcome of this tests to the R.M.
