We did it - the Virtual iRODS User Group Meeting 2020 was held last month. We provided a write-up of our process and outcomes. We're pretty pleased with ourselves, given the circumstances.
We have recently released iRODS 4.2.8, PRC 0.8.3, NFSRODS 1.0, iRODS S3 Lambda 1.0 (and 1.1 and 1.2), Logical Quotas 220.127.116.11, and Hard Links 18.104.22.168.
Since the UGM, we have been hard at work on updating the authentication mechanism testing for PRC, adding a few more libraries for cleaner separation of concerns within the server, and begun preliminary work on a new iRODS Command Line Interface (CLI). We continue work on intermediate replicas and logical locking for 4.2.9 alongside the new parallel transfer engine and direct streaming for the S3 plugin.
Everyone, please stay safe.
