PoD 2.0.7 is OUT

Today PoD 2.0.7 has been released. For some reasons the release was postponed several times... Finally it is out.
From now on PoD supports plug-ins. It provides already LSF and gLite plug-ins. That means you can get your PROOF cluster on the LSF or/and gLite workers just with one click.

PoD - "PROOF cluster on the fly" ;)

Find more details on PoD Trac.

PoD with Git

Last week I switched PoD development from SVN to Git. Three years of SVN...what a waste...

I don't want here to start a holy war - Git vs SVN, because there can't be any. Git will win in anyway! I just must say that I do regret that I switched to Git so late ;)

BTW, now I am switching all my development projects to Git, even private ones.

So far I opened only PoD repository for WEB view and for ssh connection. Currently repository can only be accessed using ssh protocol. In the future I am going to open it it for https as well.
