This release contains:

  • XRootD 4.8.1: Several important bug fixes

  • Frontier Squid 3.5.27-3
    • Honor "Pragma: no-cache" directive
    • Included patches from recent Squid security advisories
  • RSV 3.17.0
    • Enhanced security by verifying certificates with SHA256
    • Use GRACC (rather than the retired Gratia service) to verify the last upload time of job records
    • Added CREAM and nordugrid support back
    • Change the Java probe to not emit the pipe character which is a problem for the Gratia service
  • osg-release: Use HTTPS protocol for OSG repositories

These JIRA tickets were addressed in this release.

Notes

  • OSG 3.4 contains only 64-bit components.
  • StashCache is supported on EL7 only.
  • xrootd-lcmaps will remain at 1.2.1-2 on EL6.
  • OSG PKI tools now create service certificate files where the service tag is separated from the hostname with an underscore (_). This new format first appeared in OSG PKI tools version 2.1.2.

Detailed changes are below. All of the documentation can be found here.

Known Issues

  • None.

Updating to the new release

To update to the OSG 3.4 series, please consult the page on updating between release series.

Update Repositories

To update to this series, you need to install the current OSG repositories.

Update Software

Once the new repositories are installed, you can update to this new release with:

[email protected] # yum update

Notes

  • Please be aware that running yum update may also update other RPMs. You can exclude packages from being updated using the --exclude=[package-name or glob] option for the yum command.
  • Watch the yum update carefully for any messages about a .rpmnew file being created. That means that a configuration file had been edited, and a new default version was to be installed. In that case, RPM does not overwrite the edited configuration file but instead installs the new version with a .rpmnew extension. You will need to merge any edits that have made into the .rpmnew file and then move the merged version into place (that is, without the .rpmnew extension). Watch especially for /etc/lcmaps.db, which every site is expected to edit.
