Software Releases

Gaudi (Hubert)

  • Patches
    • Fixes in genconf (Atlas)
    • propagation of StatusCode in ToolSvc from finalization of tools (Atlas)
    • MsgSvc operator<< moved outside the class (Atlas)

    • Aida2ROOT (Vanya) pending, will go to a new package (GaudiUtils)

LHCb, Boole, Brunel (Marco Ca.)

  • LHCb in DEV
    • XmlDDDB v40r0 works but has a different entry point, so the option files have been modified to centralize the settings of the entry point
  • adding MFD package in LHCb
    • currently plugins for different mass storage systems, should be moved to GFAL

Gauss (Gloria)

  • Fix for a problem in production is being tested and will go to v25r8
