TaskForest Version 1.19 Released

New Features in Versions 1.18 & 1.19

All of the changes in these releases are related to the website. The layout has been changed so that wide tables are more easily displayed. Online documentation has been added. Jobs can now be rerun and marked directly from the status and log directories.

The 'Cache-Control: Public' HTTP response header was added to allow Firefox 3 to cache SSL pages which it does not do by default. This greatly improves website performance if you're using Firefox 3. Firefox 2 does not support the Cache-Control response header, so the website will be slower if you're using SSL and Firefox 2 or earlier.

For a full list of changes, please see the Change log.

TaskForest Version 1.17 Released

The major change in this release is the addition of an alternative run wrapper script called run_with_log. It performs the same functions as the original wrapper, and also creates a log file that captures both STDOUT and STDERR of the job being run.

On the website you can now display the log file of any running or completed job, by clicking on the displayed status of the job. The RESTful web service also supports this. A couple of entries have also been added to the HOWTO section of the documentation.

To see an example of this, click the 'Play' button on the video to the right. (Flash support required)
