OAR 2.5.7 mainly brings a security fix for the oarsh command. It is highly recommended to upgrade (server, frontend(s) and nodes), since all previous versions of OAR are affected. Debian and Centos Packages are available as usual. See the OAR 2.5.7 page for more details.

Those tools could be of very good help for testing OAR before considering installing a new version on real clusters. oar-vagrant also shows a basic setup of OAR in its provision script, which is kind of a self documentation.
Please feel free to give feedback on those tools.

OAR has a new website ! We choose to use a lighter framework for our web site, unifying the wiki site and the main site in a single dokuwiki. Some parts of the site are still to move/adapt from the old website.
Thanks to C. Pernet for the nice panorama of Belledonne, which OAR looks over.

The first stable release of the 2.5.x series is out.
A lot of work has been done between the branches 2.4.x and 2.5.x. Among them:
A lot of improvements and optimization of the RestFull API
OAR 2.5 provides a Restfull API to submit/query/administrate the batch scheduler. The API now implements pagination and uses FastCGI for better performance.
A better installation procedure
The source code has been reorganized and the installation scripts have been improved to ease both the installation process and the packaging maintenance. OAR can be now installed on the Debian/Redhat like operating systems with the same procedure. And supporting another system should be easy (provided that the system fullfill the needed dependencies).
