Dear friends,

A new stable release of the GridWay meta-scheduler (now a Globus project) is
available for download (see below the release announcement). 

GridWay has incorporated state-of-the-art scheduling policies, comprising
job prioritization policies (fixed priority, urgency, fair-share, deadline
and waiting-time) and resource prioritization policies (fixed priority,
usage, failure and rank) and support for OGF standard JSDL.

In this way, most of scheduling policies provided by Sun Grid Engine can now
be applied on Globus infrastructures for multi-site grids.

Sincerely, 

Ignacio M. Llorente
GridWay Project Chair
