The Information Publishing Framework (IPF) enables XSEDE Service Providers to programmatically publish information about the software and services available to users of their resources. Version 1.6 is a minor bug fix release that addresses configuration, service workflow publishing, and daemonized workflow issues. This minor release is recommended for all SPs that currently have deployed version 1.5.
The new IPF package is available as a tar.gz and as a RPM in the XSEDE Yum repository under package name 'ipf-xsede'. This update is compatible with your existing configuration files so no reconfiguration is needed after updating to version 1.6 (e.g., yum update ipf-xsede). For more information on IPF, please see the installation instructions here.
