New Features/Changes in 6.2.0.p1 and 6.0.0.p11


The primary additions in this release are:


  • HSI now supports the ability to specify a default Class of Service to be used when creating new HPSS files.   The site administrator can optionally specify a default COS on the HPSS gateway, and the users or client host admins can override the default in the global or private hsirc file. 
  • This release primarily contains changes for problems that have been fixed since earlier HPSS 7.5.1/7.5.2 HSI releases.  Please see the release notes for details.


New Features in 5.0.2.p11


  • 5.0.2.p11 now supports the ability to specify a default Class of Service to be used when creating new HPSS files.   The site administrator can optionally specify a default COS on the HPSS gateway, and the users or client host admins can override the default in the global or private hsirc file.   
  • 5.0.2.p11 primarily contains changes for problems that have been fixed since earlier HPSS 7.4.3 HSI releases.  Please see the release notes for details.


All versions also contain bugfixes for problems that have shown up in earlier versions, and and we encourage all sites to upgrade to the new version.  

 

A list of the changes in these releases can be found here.


Note that HSI for HPSS 7.4.3 is now in maintenance mode, and in general no new features will be added to this version.  


Note: Since HPSS has now dropped support for HPSS 7.4.3, HSI support for 7.4.3 will also be dropped at some time in the near-term future.


Sites are strongly encouraged to upgrade to HPSS 7.5.2 as soon as possible in order to take advantage of the many new features that have been added to HPSS and HSI.
