LArSoft Releases

A LArSoft release is a consistent set of LArSoft products built from tagged versions of code in the repositories. This implicitly includes corresponding versions of all external dependencies used to build it. Each release has a release page on Scisoft at: http://scisoft.fnal.gov/scisoft/bundles/larsoft/<version>/larsoft-<version>.html such as: http://scisoft.fnal.gov/scisoft/bundles/larsoft/v06_80_01/larsoft-v06_80_01.html

There are two types of releases– Integration and Production.

Integration:

  • Created weekly or on demand for special purposes
  • Contents approved at Coordination Meetings
  • May be removed after about a month. We announce our intentions in advance

Production

  • Any release designated as “production” by an experiment
  • Created on demand (but usually on the weekly schedule)
  • Contents approved by the experiment declaring production. Typically also coordinated through the CM to keep other experiments informed
  • Production releases are retained on disk indefnitely
