FTS

New Major version of SOCI in EPEL7-testing (4.0.0). FTS rebuild needed, we are discussing with the maintainer about issues that we found.

We would need to release a new FTS build for C7 when SOCI 4 will be pushed to EPEL stable.

ARC

We are preparing for ARC 6.8.0 release, expected end of September.

xrootd

Xrootd 5 has been released.

Updates for EPEL 7 and EPEL 8 are available in EPEL testing repos. These updates have the automatic push to stable after 14 days turned off.

Major changes:

  • The old client library libXrdClient has been dropped (replacement: libXrdCl).

Minor changes:

  • The XrdSysDNS class is removed (replacement: XrdNetAddr)
  • XrdPosixXrootd::setDebug() and some other deprecated methods in that class have been dropped.

For EPEL 7 there is an xrootd-compat package providing the old xrootd 4 libraries. It is parallel installable since the sonames have changed. The compat package does not provide any devel subpackages.

It is expected that the current xrootd 5.0.1 build in these updates will be replaced by a build of xrootd 5.0.2 before the updates are pushed to EPEL stable.

Compatibility testing with DPM/dmlite is ongoing. Some configuration compatibility glitches found will be addressed in xrootd 5.0.2.

No update to xrootd 5 is planned for EPEL 6. There is a new xrootd 4.12.4 available in EPEL testing for EPEL 6 though:

AOB

ARC finds it problematic that the ARC released in UMD is always so far behind the current newest release. We are considering to stop providing ARC for UMD.

The verification procedure for ARC - does it involve running ARC together with other relevant packages in the release to make sure compatibility is met?
