-====== Release Notes 5.5 ====== 
- 
-GridWay 5.5 is the new development version of the fifth series of the metascheduler,​ completely backwards-compatible with version 5.4. Extra features and intensive bug fixing have been worked out. 
- 
-Release date: October 19th, 2009. 
- 
-===== LDAP Information MAD ===== 
-Regarding the Information Manager (IM) a new Middleware Access Driver (MAD) has been developed for querying a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server for information about the grid resources available. 
- 
-===== XML support ===== 
- 
-==== Output of cli ==== 
-Now the commands ''​gwhost'',​ ''​gwps'',​ ''​gwuser'',​ ''​gwhistory''​ and ''​gwacct''​ accept a ''​-x''​ flag formatting all the information according to XML standards. 
- 
-==== XML schema ==== 
-A new [[http://​dev.gridway.org/​attachments/​download/​11/​gridway.xsd |validation schema]] has been added to the distribution in order to validate the output of the command line interface. It is located under the ''​xml_schema/''​ folder. 
- 
-===== Improved configuration script ===== 
-The testing performed at the configuration stage before installation exits if the perl and ruby library requirements are asked for but not satisfied. They correspond to the ''<​nowiki>​--enable-ldap</​nowiki>''​ and ''<​nowiki>​--enable-drmaa-ruby</​nowiki>''​ options of ''​./​configure''​.
