2. What's New: 

Moab Access Portal 5.2

This release of Moab Access Portal provides users with the ability to view
in the browser the output of jobs they have submitted. Both standard output
and standard error can be displayed. Additionally all pages in MAP have been
updated in accordance with the standards designated by HTML 4.01 Strict,
which allows greater cross browser compatibility for a better user
experience. MAP now allows users to enable statistical profiling at login

Job Output View - A new page has been added to the Job section in MAP to
view job output data. The page shows a list of all jobs that have been run
by the currently logged in user. Each item shows the job name and ID, job
state, link to job standard output and link to job standard error.

Statistical Profiling - A prompt has been added to MAP at login time to
query the user about preferences on profiling options. If profiling is not
enabled in Moab, MAP will ask the user if they would like to enable it. The
user may choose to not be prompted again on login if they choose to not
enable profiling.

Standards Compliance - All html contained in MAP has been updated to conform
to HTML 4.01 Strict. This level of standards compliance allows for a better
user experience across multiple browsers.
