-====== Release Notes 5.8 ====== 
- 
-GridWay 5.8 is the new stable version of the fifth series of the metascheduler. 
- 
-Release date: September 30th, 2011. 
- 
-===== Modified Installation Procedure ===== 
- 
-GridWay core and commands are now configured, built and installed separately from the MADs, which have their own Makefile. 
- 
-This way, GridWay installation does not depend on the installation of a given middleware. 
- 
-===== Randomized Job State Polling ===== 
- 
-Job state is polled at randomized intervals, to avoid saturation due to multiple simultaneous requests. Moreover, the interval is duplicated when a failure occurs. 
- 
-===== CREAM Execution Driver ===== 
- 
-An execution driver for [[http://​grid.pd.infn.it/​cream|CREAM]],​ the job submission and management interface of gLite, is included in this release. 
- 
-===== OGSA-BES Execution Driver (Tech. Preview) ===== 
- 
-A technology preview of an execution driver for [[www.ogf.org/​documents/​GFD.108.pdf|OGSA-BES]],​ the OGF specification for job submission and management, is included in this release. 
- 
-===== Syslog Compliant Logs ===== 
- 
-GridWay offers the opportunity to write logs in the Syslog format. You can configure GridWay using ''​--with-syslog''​ option. Optionally, you can use a particular facility (''​LOG_DAEMON'',​ ''​LOG_USER'',​ or ''​LOG_LOCAL[0-7]''​). 
- 
-===== Translation of Resource Requirements in Job Template ===== 
- 
-A translation mechanism of resource requirements in job templates to RSL, JDL and JSDL is available. You can explicitly set the maximum cputime, walltime, and/or maximum and minimum amount of memory for a single execution of the executable, by means of the ''​ENVIRONMENT''​ variables ''​MAXCPUTIME'',​ ''​MAXTIME'',​ ''​MAXWALLTIME'',​ ''​MAXMEMORY''​ and ''​MINMEMORY''​ in job templates. 
- 
-===== Disposing Jobs when DONE ===== 
- 
-A new option to gwd (''​-d''​) is added to dispose jobs when they are done. 
- 
-===== Bug fixing ===== 
- 
-The following bugs have been fixed: 
-  * [[http://​dev.gridway.org/​issues/​86|Bug #86]]: Problems with java.util.Calendar
