This version of GridShib for GT is primarily a bug fix release. There is one new feature, and that is, a refactoring of the blacklisting framework that now permits the blacklisting of identity attributes (such as e-mail addresses) in addition to IP addresses and SAML name identifiers. See the CHANGES file for a complete list of changes in this version:

Along with GridShib SAML Tools v0.5.0, version 0.6.1 of GridShib for GT will be included in a Capability Kit to supplement the Coordinated TeraGrid Software and Services (CTSS) stack. This is the next step in a focused effort to deploy GridShib software at both the science gateways and resource providers throughout the TeraGrid. This work is funded by the NSF TeraGrid Grid Integration Group through a sub-award to NCSA.

Thank you for your continued support of GridShib!
