  • Nagios plugin.
  • HTML/PDF docs.
  • Quick start guides.
  • File Daemon bpipe-fd plugin.
  • POSIX.1e capabilities for File Daemon.
  • Systemd for Fedora and RHEL 7+.
  • SysV init scripts for RHEL 6.
  • GZIP/LZO compression.
  • Static uid/gid of 133 (see "setup" package).
  • No usermode / fedora-usermgmt stuff in the console packages.
  • Docs no longer an arch specific subpackage.
  • SQL libraries needed only by Director and Storage daemons.
  • SQL backend management through the alternatives system.
  • Always use system QT libraries.
  • Removal of SHA1 non-free code (uses OpenSSL).
  • Optional LogWatch scripts.
