[workspace-announce] Workspace Release 1.3.1

On behalf of the workspace team, I am happy to announce the TP 1.3.1 
release of the Workspace Service. You can download the new release from:

The main new feature in this release is the implementation of the 
workspace pilot which provides non-invasive adaptations to batch 
schedulers (such as PBS) enabling sites to run virtual machines 
alongside jobs. The details of this approach are described in:

In addition, the release also contains the ensemble service that allows 
clients to create ensembles of heterogeneous virtual machines to be 
deployed and managed together, improvements to the client, and several 
bug fixes. The complete changelog can be found at:

We welcome comments, feedback, and bug reports. Information about the 
project, software downloads, documentation and instructions on how to 
join the workspace-user mailing list for support questions can be found 
at: http://workspace.globus.org

Happy Valentine's Day!
