- +
-IMPORTANT NOTES: +
- +
-i) Starting with SRB 2.0.0, installation procedures have been changed+
-to use the "configure" script. Please read README.build for details.+
-Starting with 2.1.1, there is now an install.pl script to handle certain +
-types of installations.+
-ii) The Sput and Sget commands support parallel I/O. But the DEFAULT I/O+
-mode is SERIAL. Please use the -m option or set the env variable "srbParallel"+
-to any value to switch the I/O mode to parallel. With 2.1, the server+
-can be configured with the number of parallel threads to use.+
-iii) The previous versions (1.1.8) of MCAT are not compatible with the+
-2.0 and 2.1 releases. At SDSC, we are starting to upgrade the MCATs+
-of various projects to 2.x. If you are using one of the MCATs at+
-SDSC, please email srb@sdsc.edu for the status of the MCAT upgrade.+
- +
-See the ReleaseNotesX.Y[.Z] files (for example, ReleaseNotes2.1.1) for+
-features of the releases.+
