The Workflow System 6.6.0 is now available for download from http://www.unicore.eu/download
This release updates the workflow system to the UNICORE 6.6 base libraries. In addition there are a number of new features such as in the workflow engine improvements for the for-each loop, and it is possible to mark a group of tasks to be run at the same resource. The Service Orchestrator has seen a major overhaul, and many internal issues were fixed. In addition, the internal broker is now available as a Web service, which means that clients (e.g. the upcoming UCC v7.0) can use it for finding candidate sites, and even let it select the best site for a job.
