Relocation of Redmine service

Added by Florian Uhlig about 10 hours ago

Dear colleagues,

as already announced in the last software meeting we have to move the Redmine server to a new infrastructure.
The relocation is planned for tomorrow afternoon which needs a interruption of the service.
The Redmine server will not be available after 15h tomorrow and we hope to be online again within one hour.

Best regards,

Florian

Release candidate DEC21

Added by Florian Uhlig about 1 month ago

Today the branch dec21_patches for the release candidate DEC21 was created in the git repository from the commit hash ce6be392f097feba2336443e830e538e2d8f1602.

Currently the branch is still in sync with the master branch.
The development should go on in the master branch and we will port needed commits from the master to the dec21_patches branch. Please mention in your merge request if the commit is a bug fix and needs to be ported to the dec21_patches branch.

Please test this version and report bugs or unexpected findings.

The final code freeze is 28.01.2022.

MR 544: Replace ROOT data types with C++ standard

Added by Volker Friese about 2 months ago

Following discussion and agreement in the software meeting of 7 October 2021, we intend to replace the ROOT integer data types with C++ standard types and TMath with the C++ standard math library for all classes in core/data in MR 544.

We do not expect compatibility issues in cbmroot. However, it would be desirable to have independent checks beyond the tests in our CI. So you are invited to checkout the code of the MR from https://git.cbm.gsi.de/j.decuveland/cbmroot/-/tree/no_root and test it w.r.t. the HEAD with your analysis. Please report unexpected findings or problems in reply to this news or in a Redmine issue.

If no problems are reported, we will merge the MR by the end of next week (10 December 2021).
