VDT 1.3.0 Release
We are pleased to announce the release of VDT 1.3.0.
This web page is incomplete and will be fleshed out before the
- The VDT now includes VOMS.
- We provide more subsets
of the VDT to choose from. Several packages that were optional in the 1.2 series (DRM and MySQL) are now included in the main VDT.
- The VDT installs much more quickly than it used to. Up to four times as fast, depending on your hardware.
- Globus 3.2.1. For the moment, we are only using the pre-web
service components of Globus. This looks nearly identical to Globus
2.4.3 and is, for the most part, compatible. Read our compatibility page for full details.
- Condor 6.7.3, which includes Condor-C.
- Virtual Data System 1.3.5.
- DRM 1.2.2.
- MonaLisa 1.2.20.
- MySQL 4.0.22

VDT 1.3.0a is identical to VDT 1.3.0 except that the
Virtual Data System has been upgraded to 1.3.5a from 1.3.5. This
version has two small changes:
- All concrete planners generate DAG files with suffix "-.dag",
as they used to in the 1.2.* series. Users will only see "0" (zero)
as substitution for , e.g. "-0.dag".
Note: In principal, any non-negative integer, including multiple digits,
is a valid substitution for . Future versions may use that
- The Pegasus planner incorporates one option change. Single letter
options are introduced by a single hyphen while word-options are
introduced by a double-hyphen, as is standard for most Unix software.
Therefore, the (old) --p flag changes to either -p or --pools. If you
use the Pegasus concrete planner in a scripted framework, you will have
to adjust your script(s) accordingly.
