RENCI is pleased to announce the first open source release of the new E-iRODS distribution managed and overseen by the iRODS Consortium.

  • Fixed an estimated 200 static analysis errors identified by cppcheck
  • Fixed an estimated 20 memory leaks identified by valgrind
  • Increased code coverage from 20% to over 56%
  • Continuously built and tested across 3 major linux distributions
  • Packaged for 3 major linux distributions

This release includes packages that have been continuously tested on CentOS 5 and 6, SuSE 11 and 12, and Ubuntu 10 and 12.
