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.

The UNICORE middleware makes distributed computing and data resources available in a federation called a Grid. The Cloud is an opportunity to supplement static (or fixed) resources in a UNICORE Grid with resources allocated dynamically in the Cloud. Key differences between static and dynamic provisioning concerns the usage model as well as virtualization. The 'once you pay for it, you have it' usage model of the Cloud is a straightforward economic one. In particular operational scenarios this can be an attractive option. Given the multitude of Cloud providers and interfaces, the continued application of the uniformity of access principle of UNICORE will ease the integration of Cloud resources into the Grid. Moreover new capabilities resulting from the maturing of virtualization technology makes it possible for UNICORE to consider an expansion of its abstraction principals. In the Cloud, users do not have permanent environments. These are provisioned on-demand and users have full flexibility regarding make-up of the computing environment that is allocated. Special consideration will be given to extending the middleware to enable homogeneity of both access and environment. This offers an intriguing roadmap aligning the future development of UNICORE with the continuing shift towards computing as a pure utility.
The latest version of UNICORE's graphical client suite is available for download from http://www.unicore.eu/download . New features include a nice new way to set file permissions via the Grid browser and to define site specific resources as job requirements. In addition, the new client fixes some bugs.
