I don't know if this is already documented on the gridengine web site, I 
understand the .x in the gridengine release numbers tend to be major 
releases, so 6.1 is likely to have many major changes. The equivalent of 
.1 for the current release would have been 6.0u1, we are at 6.0u8 now :-)

I think a good deal of these tend to be local site [mis]configuration 
related, rather than bugs.

The reason for more [apparent] issues with 6.0 than 5.3 may be due to 
5.3 not being used by as many people as 6.0, but I could be wrong!

I'm sure I've seen TruCluster mentioned here in the past, so someone 
must have been successful with it.

Good luck
