                      Announcing Grid Engine 6.0
                Regensburg, Germany -- June 14, 2004

Grid Engine 6.0 is now ready and courtesy binaries are available for
download. We would like to thank the users of the Beta phase for their
feedback. Grid Engine 6.0 is an important step forward to simplify Grid
Computing at the Enterprise and Cluster Grid level. Important new features
of Grid Engine 6.0 are support for flexible to use cluster queues, resource
reservation and the job submission and control library DRMAA. There is no
more distinction between the baseline product and the Enterprise Edition.
The functionality of the Enterprise Edition is now the default feature set.

The courtesy binaries are available at:

memory requirements of qmaster and scheduler. Please see
