CREAM thickens

CREAM at Glasgow has been upgraded to the latest glite3.2 release 3.2.5-0.sl5 (or INFN version 1.6). This brings lots of enhancements like

self limiting behaviour a'la WMS
A new proxy purger to clean the delegationdb and from the file system the expired proxies
a new way to customize the job wrapper
an improved proxy renewal mechanism
and one of my favourites, support for ISB/OSB transfers from/to gridftp servers run using user credentials rather than server host certificates. This will work well with users running gridftp servers on their own machines for example (as long as they don't turn them off when they go home at night!)

you can find out more about them all here. Now back to draining the WMS.
