In preparation for the April production release of BIRN version 2.0, the BIRN Coordinating Center will issue its 2.0 beta release this Friday, January 28. During the beta testing period, which will last through March, participating facilities will assess the effectiveness and usability of the new and upgraded components of BIRN 2.0. The new release will include -improved data mediation tools -standardized security -portal enhancements -increased data grid capabilities -upgraded infrastructure management tools BIRN 2.0 marks the beginning of a biannual release cycle on which BIRN will issue updates. Every April and October, users will receive an integrated release of new and enhanced capabilities, bug fixes, and revised documentation. The new emphasis will be on releases of integrated tools to enhance research workflows rather than upgrades of individual components. The test beds play an integral role in these releases by continuing to provide requirements, tools, and valuable feedback. By establishing a more formal release schedule, the test beds will have a simpler and more predictable mechanism for interacting with the BIRN-CC and planning their own research. For users wishing to participate in testing the beta release, contact Vicky Rowley, (858) 822-0708, vrowley@ucsd.edu.
