Hi Josh,

 What's main difference between torque-2.3.7 and  torque-2.4?  
 Are the changes in torque-2.3.7 also supported in torque-2.4.x?

PS. I deployed the latest 2.4.1b1 in our local cluster.

> Everyone,
> TORQUE 2.3.7 has been released. You can download it at:
> http://www.clusterresources.com/downloads/torque/torque-2.3.7.tar.gz
> This build has a number of bug fixes and enhancements. Here is a list of changes 
> from the CHANGELOG:
> c - crash     b - bug fix    e - enhancement    f - new feature
>   e - pbs_mom sisters can now tolerate an explicit group ID instead of only a
>       valid group name. This helps TORQUE be more robust to group lookup
>       failures.
>   b - fixed a bug where UNIX domain socket communication was failing when
>       "--disable-privports" was used.
>   e - add job exit status as 10th argument to the epilogue script
>   c - check filename for NULL to prevent crash
>   e - merged in more logging and NOSIGCHLDMOM capability from Yahoo branch
>   e - merged in new log_ext() function to allow more fine grained syslog events,
>       you can now specify severity level. Also added more logging statements
>   e - added code to allow compilers to override CLONE_BATCH_SIZE at configure
>       time (allows for finer grained control on how arrays are created)
>   e - added code which prefixes the severity tag on all log_ext() and log_err()
>       messages
>   e - added qmgr option accounting_keep_days, specifies how long to keep
>       accounting files.
>   e - changed mom config varattr so invoked script returns the varattr name
>       and value(s)
>   e - improved the performance of pbs_server when submitting large numbers of
>       jobs with dependencies defined
>   e - added new parameter "log_keep_days" to both pbs_server and pbs_mom.
>       specifies how long to keep log files before they are automatically removed
>   e - added qmgr server attribute lock_file, specifies where server lock file
>       is located
>   e - modified to allow retention of completed jobs across server shutdown
>   e - added job_must_report qmgr configuration which says the job must be
>       reported to scheduler. Added job attribute "reported". Added PURGECOMP
>       functionality which allows scheduler to confirm jobs are reported. Also
>       added -c option to qdel. Used to clean up unreported jobs.
>   b - fix so interactive jobs run when using $job_output_file_umask userdefault
>   b - changes to improve the qstat -x XML output and documentation
>   b - fix truncated output in qmgr (peter h IPSec+jan n NANCO)
>   b - fix so find_resc_entry still works after setting server extra_resc
>   b - change so set_jobexid() gets called if JOB_ATR_egroup is not set
>   b - fixed memory issue (underallocated array for a string)
> Thanks for everyone who contributed to this release!
