         Announcing Grid Engine 6.0 Update 7
         Regensburg, Germany -- Dec 09, 2005

Grid Engine 6.0 Update 7 is now ready and courtesy binaries are 
available for download. The SGE 6.0u7 release includes performance 
improvents and fixes bugs of the software, installation procedure and 
man pages.

The major scalability improvements are:

* qmaster GDI GET request handling (e.g. qstat) is now faster and
   consumes less memory.
* async communication protocol between scheduler and master. This leads
   to a more efficient communication flow.
* better commlib thread concurrency through introduction of RW-locks.
* significantly enhanced DRMAA submission rate.

A complete list of fixed issues is available at
