TORQUE 2.5.8 is now available for general release.

There were no new features added in this release but there were some notable bug fixes. 

Among them was a fix for the queue resource procct. This resource is intended to be internal to TORQUE. The problem occurred when a job could not be routed to an execution queue and had to be put in a routing queue. The procct count would be interpreted by Moab and Maui as a generic resource. Since the procct generic resource did not exist the job would be stuck. This has been fixed.

Another fix was for NVIDIA gpu mode setting. If exclusive_process or default were requested as a GPU mode and TORQUE was using a scheduler the mode would not be changed. This was due to the scheduler stripping of the mode designation. This problem has now been fixed. However, to be able to use the default mode will require the addition of a property to the nodes file of "default" until a new release of Moab is available. The version is at this time not known.

Please see the CHANGELOG for all bugs fixed in this version of TORQUE.
