Hello all! We've reached the end of another month and with that comes exciting iRODS news.
We're excited to report that the C++ REST API and Zone Management Tool (ZMT) are approaching their first official release! We have a few more issues to take care of before release, so look for those within a few days/weeks.
The indexing plugin is almost ready to be released. Support for the NIEHS schema has been implemented and tested. It is now in the final stages of polish.
Metalnx has received quite a number of changes in the past month. Search has been reimplemented to use GenQuery. This change allows Metalnx to honor permissions and present only the logical space. The AVU search and Property search have been combined to provide an interface closer to that of iquest. We hope the community finds these changes helpful moving forward.
Jargon is getting support for Replica Access Tokens which enable parallel transfer over multiple streams. Development is going well and we hope to see a release soon. Big thanks to Mike Conway for his work.
Like Jargon, we're working to add support for Replica Access Tokens to the Globus Connector.
We've also been developing a new docker-based test environment for iRODS. This new system is a companion to the iRODS development environment and is being developed with the community in mind. It will allow anyone to run the test suite, add support for new operating systems, iRODS clients, etc. It has already helped us identify bugs that weren't exposed through previous testing systems.
We look forward to seeing what the community thinks of the new tools.
Until next time, have a wonderful day.
