Updates from the Ganga Devs


Date Update
11/05/2015 Some users observe a non-starting Ganga 6.1.13. This appears to be fixed by running: 'find ~/gangadir/repository/${USER}/LocalXML/6.0/jobs/* -empty -type d -delete'
11/04/2015 Ganga 6.1.13 Has been requested to be released to LHCb this addresses numerous different bugs identified since 6.1.9 and fixes the not working 'runMonitoring' command
10/09/2015 Ganga 6.1.11 Has been released which is the same as 6.1.9 only with the version string fixed and many external packages not required removed. This is also the first release from github.
10/02/2015 Ganga 6.1.9 Has been released but due to a bug in the release has been identified as 'Ganga-SVN'
10/02/2015 Ganga 6.1.8 has a bug due to splitting datasets with LFN with zero replicas. A working solution been described elsewhere and a proper fix has been implemented for 6.1.9
09/21/2015 Ganga versions pre v600r44 have been requested for archiving: https://sft.its.cern.ch/jira/browse/LHCBDEP-2734 Ganga v601r9 is near to being released and has fixes for quota checking, performance problems and a fix when reading data from opts files
09/14/2015 Ganga 6.1.9 will hopefully be released by 09/19 and will address a few issues which have been reported with GaussSplitter, diracopts and disk quota checking as well as lots of code cleanups behind the scenes
09/14/2015 A problem has been reported with GaussSplitter. I'll attempt to fix this with Ganga 6.1.9
09/10/2015 Root Merger requires that the path to root be hard-coded into the .gangarc file in order to work. A proper fix is planned for 6.1.9 or later
09/10/2015 Ganga v601r8 is the latest version, this should work for most users. There are minor bugs with j.backend.settings and with splitting datasets where the data is entirely within the opts file. 6.1.9 is expected some time next week
09/10/2015 Ganga 6.1.6 and 6.1.7 were pulled due to bugs in constructing the Dirac JDL, this doesn't effect non-Dirac jobs but was deemed significant so these versions have been archived
08/21/2015 Ganga v601r6 is scheduled for release around August 24.
08/17/2015 Ganga 6.1.5 has a problem being deployed due to internal Ganga problems, 6.1.6 is being prepared in response
08/17/2015 Ganga 6.1.4 has a problem copying jobs from disk. A possible workaround is to create the job by hand or wait for Ganga 6.1.6 which will address this
