I enclose below the text that Charles Bacon sent today to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are a LOT of improvements in GT4.0.5. A few highlights: GRAM staging performance is doubled, thanks to optimized local invocations; GridWay metascheduler is included; lots of new trigger service functionality.
