VDT 2.0.0p18 Update

On 2010-07-01, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 2.0.0p18.

Changes to VDT 2.0.0p18

  1. We have switched from Java 5 to Java 6: Java 5 is no longer in the VDT, and all software in the VDT that was using Java 5 (that was most of our software, other than Bestman), is now using Java 6. This was done because Java 5 is past it's end-of-life, and security updates are no longer available. OSG SEP 12

Updating to VDT 2.0.0p18

If you installed VDT 2.0.0 after VDT 2.0.0p18 was released on 2010-07-01, you do not need to do any of these update operations because you will have 2.0.0p18.

Recommended method: VDT Updater

We strongly encourage users to update the VDT using the VDT updater script: VDT Updater Instructions

Not recommended: Pacman update

If you really want to do it the hard way, instructions for updating by using Pacman directly are available on another page. This method is hard to follow and error prone.
