The Open Grid Scheduler Project is releasing a new release: Grid
Engine 2011.11. We are going back to the open source model that was
used by Sun Microsystems (2001 - 2009), together with optional
commercial support, and with partners (more on that in a later email,
and SC11 news too!) working together to improve Grid Engine.
Release notes: http://www.scalablelogic.com/home/ReleaseNotes.pdf
Source tarball and binary packages will be available early next week.
* Berkeley DB Spooling Directory can now be placed on NFS (NFSv3 or
older, basically any modern network filesystems)

open source projects that depend on (or integrate with) Sun Grid
Engine would also work with this release.

In the future, we will have a more formal compability test procedure.
