Apache Airavata 0.4-INCUBATING Released

The Apache Airavata (Incubating) team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Airavata 0.4-INCUBATING release.

The release can be obtained from the Apache Airavata download page -

Apache Airavata is a software toolkit currently used to build science gateways but that has a much wider potential use. It provides features to compose, manage, execute, and monitor small to large scale applications and workflows on computational resources ranging from local clusters to national grids and computing clouds. Gadgets interfaces to Airavata back end services can be deployed in open social containers such as Apache Rave and modify them to suit their needs. Airavata builds on general concepts of service oriented computing, distributed messaging, and workflow composition and orchestration.

For general information on Apache Airavata, please visit the project website:

 Apache Airavata is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.  While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
