Hi Folks,

  A new version of JANA: 0.7.2 is now available for download from the JANA website:


This enacts a several changes listed in the CHANGES file. Specifically:

Changes in version 0.7.2
- Use cache for JGeometryXML::Get(string xpath, string &sval)
  so many-thread process startups are much faster
- Fixed bug where $JANA_HOME/plugins was not automatically searched
- Use THREAD_TIMEOUT for first event also if it is larger than
- Set object pointer to NULL in GetSingle() unless only one object exits
  Also, added optional 3rd argument to supress throwing exception
- Return useful info for "host info" from Linux servers using janactl
- Verify md5 checksum for all resources before using them
- Fixed bug where very long, multi-threaded jobs would terminate due
  to a timer running out.
- Added methods to allow manipulation of the factory call stack so that
  janadot will draw correct relationships. (Needed for GlueX DAQ plugin)

I’ve already built it for a few platforms on the JLab CUE in the standard place:


Please let me know if you have any issues with it.
