Arvados 1.4.2 release notes

November 21, 2019

The Arvados team is pleased to announce Arvados v1.4.2 which includes a few high priority bug fixes.


Full list of bug fixes:

  • Excessive RAM use during upload of large container output collection caused OOM failures for otherwise successful workflow runs (#15652)

  • arv-put was ignoring retry count during file upload (#15680)

  • Group assignments didn’t work on the Workbench 1 user admin page - this was supposed to be fixed in 1.4.1 but was not (#15496)

  • Bad collection creation when using Workbench 1 (or the Ruby SDK). When creating a new collection from an existing collection that contained multiple copies of the same file, it was possible that the new collection contained incorrect data.

  • Very slow response listing groups in Workbench 1 for systems with a large number of permission links.

  • Several Workbench 2 bugs (#15524, #15027, #15407, #15609)

  • Non-ASCII log messages not handled correctly (#15655)

  • Referential integrity issue with container requests referencing deleted containers (#15656)

  • enableReuse: false for arv:ReuseRequirement in a workflow step didn’t work if the top level workflow had reuse enabled. All top-level workflow runners are now submitted with reuse disabled so that the rest of the workflow can be properly evaluated. (#15497)
