Version 4.0 of CSF released

The new release of CSF provides support for Globus Toolkit 4.0.0. Since adopts different specifications(from OGSI to WSRF), CSF4.0 isn't compatible with CSF3.X.

You can also get CSF4.0 source package from Globus Toolkit 4 release package.

Version 3.2 of CSF released

The new release of CSF provides support for Globus Toolkit 3.2.x. Unfortunately, the changes break compatibility with GT 3.0.x, so CSF 3.1 is required if you are still using GT 3.0.2.

The release has not been fully tested, so your mileage may vary.

Version 3.1 of CSF released

I've created a source package for CSF suitable for installation with GPT. I also decided to increment the revision number, since the addition of GRAM support to the RM adapter seemed to warrant it.
