It's getting very real. Just over six weeks until our 2021 iRODS User Group Meeting.
We have a draft list of talks from the Consortium. We have around 40 registrations (and counting). We have T-shirts and stickers being printed. It's all coming together... mostly. 4.2.9 will be ready.
4-2-stable has just seen write locks merged, along with additional cleanups for checksums and streaming overwrites. The delay server now honors a priority level for delayed jobs, along with honoring the delay time units as they were documented. An atomic database operations library is under development that will allow one-stop resource hierarchy editing as well as a potential path forward for the iRODS Lambda function to increase its batch size (both increasing throughput and lowering cost).
NFSRODS now lists very large collections correctly (we had a paging bug), and with its additional caches, is under additional testing in larger environments. We expect a major release at UGM again this year.
We have a month of development time left. Heads down.
