I've built a new version set at JLab with upgrades of several of the 
support packages we use. It is version set 5.0.0 
<https://halldweb.jlab.org/halld_versions/version_5.0.0.xml>. In 
particular we are upgrading the versions of Geant4 and ROOT. Until now, 
we have been using Geant4 10.02.p02, which was released on June 17, 2016 
and ROOT 6.08.06, which was released on March 2, 2017.

This version set is the same as 4.46.0 
<https://halldweb.jlab.org/halld_versions/version_4.46.0.xml> (released 
a couple of days ago) except for updates to the following, 
non-GlueX-specific packages:

  * geant4 10.02.p02 -> 10.04.p02
  * lapack 3.6.0 -> 3.9.0
  * root 6.08.06 -> 6.24.04
  * sqlitecpp 2.2.0 -> 3.1.1
  * sqlite 3.13.0 -> 3.36.0
  * xerces-c 3.1.4 -> 3.2.3

The following GlueX packages are slightly different from those used in 
4.46.0, but the changes are only to their respective build schemes, 
changes that allow building against the new support packages. There are 
no functional differences:

  * halld_recon 4.29.0 -> 4.29.1
  * halld_sim 4.33.0 -> 4.33.1
  * hdgeant4 2.29.0 -> 2.29.1

These versions of Geant4 and ROOT have been in limited use by 
collaborators for months now. Still issues may arise. This is a big 
version jump. If you find any problems let me know. We can always drop 
back to 4.46.0 if we need to.

Version set 5.0.0 will become the default at JLab at midnight tonight.
