StoRM v. 1.11.8

CentOS 5 CentOS 6

Released on 13.03.2015


This release fixes a critical issue that prevented the proper cleanup of PtP requests state after an srmRm was called on a SURL. As a consequence, a SURL could remain stuck and it would be impossible to perform other PtPs on that SURL without cleaning the database state by hand. All sites should upgrade to 1.11.8 at their earliest convenience to avoid being affected by this issue.

This release also provides other fixes and improvements as can be seen from the individual components release notes.
