dCache v1.8.0 BETA released

dCache v1.8.0 beta is now available for download:


As the page states, this includes the required SRM v2.2 stuff for WLCG but it is *NOT FOR PRODUCTION*. Sites should only upgrade once sufficient testing has been completed. If you would like to try it out as a test then feel free. I'm sure the dCache team would appreciate any feedback.

YAIM does no yet support the configuration of SRM 2.2 spaces and space reservation, this has to be done by hand and requires the use of a new concept of link groups. You already had pools and pool groups, units and ugroups, well now you've got links and link groups. More information is here:


Again, no dCache in the UK should upgrade to this version yet.
