Software Releases

Gaudi (Hubert)

  • Released v18r10 (with everything mentioned last time)
    • Changes in GaudiExample structure: component + link instead of many executables. Using GaudiMain. (Next version of GaudiKernel will feature an environment variable GAUDIEXE to point ot the default base executable)
    • Modified the rootmap dump script to check all files starting with rootmap (as ROOT does now)
    • Few patches to GaudiPython (Pere)
    • New functionality in ParticlePropertySvc (Vania)
      • it is possible to override particle properties without having to provide a complete file.
    • Minor memory leaks observed in PropertyMgr, to be investigated
    • Bug in VectorMap iterator to be fixed
  • About v19r0
    • Pere reduced the size of the new StatusCode, now it is only 2.5 times slower (instead of 20 times)

LHCb, Boole, Brunel (Marco Cl. for Marco Ca.)

  • Everything builds. He will test on Friday and, if everything goes smoothly, we should have a release early next week.

Gauss (Gloria)

  • Release v25r5 based on LCG 47. Since it was never used in production it will be replaced by a rebuild on LCG48.

Round Table

we should clean up the release area. A mail will be sent to announce which versions will be archived.
Greig and Andres
