We are pleased to announce the release of version 3.0.0 of the Cooperative Computing Tools, including Parrot, Chirp, Makeflow, Work Queue, SAND, and other software. The software may be downloaded here:
New features in this release include:
The Scalable Assembler at Notre Dame (SAND) is a set of portable genome assembly modules that work with the Celera assembler to dramatically improve runtimes. We have previously presented SAND in research publications.
The All-Pairs and Wavefront abstractions now have both multicore and Work Queue based implementations, and are fully documented and ready for use.
Makeflow has a number of improvements to parsing, maximum file sizes, dependency checking, and other usability issues.
Parrot now works around a critical bug found in Linux 2.6.22, which is widely used in Debian 5.
Many other small bug fixes and improvements.
Thanks to all who contributed to this release: Michael Albrecht, Peter Bui, Matthew Farallee, Chris Moretti, Kevin Partington, and Li Yu.
