Name        : xrootd
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 3.3.2
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://xrootd.org/
Summary     : Extended ROOT file server
Description :
The Extended root file server consists of a file server called xrootd
and a cluster management server called cmsd.

The xrootd server was developed for the root analysis framework to
serve root files. However, the server is agnostic to file types and
provides POSIX-like access to any type of file.

The cmsd server is the next generation version of the olbd server,
originally developed to cluster and load balance Objectivity/DB AMS
database servers. It provides enhanced capability along with lower
latency and increased throughput.

Update Information:

Major bug fixes:
 * Fix the opaque information setting in xrdcp using -OD (issue #1)
 * Solve locking problems in the built-in poller (issue #4)

Note that the new experimental client library (libXrdCl) whose API has not yet been declared stable by the upstream developers has changed in this release. Users of this library needs to recompile.

The stable production client library (libXrdClient) has no API changes.
