      Rising Sun Pictures Adds Array Job Interdependencies to GE
                Regensburg, Germany -- September 11, 2007

Today we are proud to announce the release of the Grid Engine Array Job
Interdependency (ARI) Snapshot courtesy binaries. Array job
interdependencies allow to run an individual successor tasks upon
completion of their predecessor tasks in a flexible way. The design of
the Grid Engine ARI functionality can be found here:

    http://open.rsp.com.au/?page_id=11

This release is intended to be a public testing and developer
solicitation release.

The code for this much demanded feature was contributed under the SISSL
license by Rising Sun Pictures (RSP), Australia based feature film
visual effects specialist (e.g. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings).
Special thanks goes to John Allen (RSP) who did all the hard work of
implementing the changes, to Matthew Landauer (RSP) and John Van Leeuwen
(RSP) who wrote the specification and to Andreas Haas (Sun) who
supported RSP during the whole specification and implementation time. It
is planned to add this functionality to the next major update release of
Grid Engine.

The courtesy binaries for a broad range of operating systems are
available at:

    http://gridengine.sunsource.net/project/gridengine/downloads/61ari/download.html

Please test this snapshot and send support questions and feedback to the
"users" mailing list of the Grid Engine open source project.
