Hi all,

 TORQUE 4.0.1 is now available for general use.

 The biggest change between 4.0.0 and 4.0.1 is the way TORQUE handles new
requests on port 15001 in pbs_server. Previously, new requests coming to
port 15001 had to wait for a select to be called in wait_request which is
part of the main_loop function on the server. This allowed only one connect
request at a time to be serviced each time through the loop. This has been
replaced by a listening thread which accepts each new connection as it
happens and then creates a new thread to process the incoming request. This
dramatically increases the number of new requests which can be handled by

 Aside from fixing several bugs which can be found in the CHANGELOG
considerable code refactoring has been done with 4.0.1 to improve
scalability, performance and reliability.

 Thanks to everyone who has helped to make this release possible. As always
community input is welcomed and necessary to make TORQUE a successful
open-source project.

 The new code can be downloaded from the new TORQUE page at

Find *TORQUE Downloads* and *TORQUE 4.0.x*. Then click *Get download*. The
