Home News

The long-awaited Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) installer software v3.0 beta release is here!

LLNL’s William Hill unveiled the beta at ESGF’s annual conference in Washington, DC. His slides can be downloaded here – look for the second link on Day 3.

v3.0 is a complete rewrite of the ESGF installation stack and includes a 2.x migration script to upgrade an existing node. This release addresses several long-standing problems such as a lack of error handling, lack of extensibility, and a complicated installation process. Note that the Conda environment must be activated to run this installer. Documentation is updated accordingly.
