General information



  • including EOS in UMD

Preview repository

  • released on 2021-06-10
  • released on 2021-08-11
    • Preview 2.35.0 (CentOS 7): APEL SSM 3.2.1, DPM/DMLite 1.15.0 and 1.15.1, frontier-squid 4.15.2, xrootd 5.3.0
  • We plan to stop the release of Preview since it doesn't seem to be used very much, and it is also easier to catch the last version of the products from EPEL or the product teams repos, prior the release in UMD.
