    • Added support for Condor 7.8+
      KNOWN ISSUE: Only applies if you upgrade condor binaries in place without using the installer. Upgrading condor binaries for user pool and the wms collector with multiple schedds should not be done without corresponding changes to the condor configuration file. If the JOB_QUEUE_LOG is not correctly configured for each sched, condor queue will be corrupted for all the scheds
    • Glideins now support curl & data file transfer plugins in condor
    • New installations of factory and frontend services now communicate with condor daemons using TCP by default.

    • Bug Fix: Glidein sets the LD_LIBRARY_PATH so condor uses local shared libraries before those in system path
    • KNOWN ISSUE: When the monitor work_dir is moved, reconfig/upgrade will fail. Recommended work-around is to delete the xml configuration in the work directory, change the work directory, then reconfig/upgrade.
    • KNOWN ISSUE: If the work directory has changed, frontend startup upgrade will not create the group directories and then the frontend will fail (silently). If you are changing directories (e.g. from a RPM upgrade), you should copy the group directories manually.

    • Fixed a security bug in the way certificate/proxy DN(s) are handled. If you are upgrading the installation rather than full install, you should patch the condor_mapfile used by Condor daemons in your installation using the convert_condormap tool available from the glideinWMS download page. For additional security, users should add new DN to the condor_mapfile only by using the glidecondor_addDN tool available in the glideinWMS/install directory.

    • Fixed a security bug in the way certificate/proxy DN(s) are handled. If you are upgrading the installation rather than full install, you should patch the condor_mapfile used by Condor daemons in your installation using the convert_condormap tool available from the glideinWMS download page. For additional security, users should add new DN to the condor_mapfile only by using the glidecondor_addDN tool available in the glideinWMS/install directory.
