Noteworthy Changes

#2146: Rose Bush: fix links for viewing files in suites with / in their names.

#2145: rose suite-clean, rose suite-run, rose-suite-restart, etc: improve diagnostic message when the commands detect that the suite may still be running. The commands now include information of the location of the contact file and relevant information from within.

#2141: rose metadata-check: allow check to pass for GTK widgets if there is no display in the environment.

#2140: rose macro: fix behaviour with transfomer macro with custom argument where it would die on an optional configuration that did not have the custom argument.

#2139: rosa svn-pre-commit: now prevent users from adding a file at the branch level.

#2138: rose_arch: prevents users from specifying a target as compulsory as well as optional, e.g. [arch:foo] and [arch:(foo)].

#2137: rose config-edit: fix traceback opening page menu for rose-suite.conf.

#2127: Rose Bush: file view: Prevent files being served outside of suite directory.

#2124: rose config-edit: STASH panel: fix update of the expanded selection in the event that re-orddering of rows are required when a table is modified.

  • When a line number is specified in the URL the line will be highlighted on page load.
  • Selecting a line no longer requires a content reload.
  • Highlighting of logger level information (i.e. INFO, DEBUG, ...) is now restored (broken by the new logging system).

#2120: rose suite-cmp-vc: new command to compare version control system information of suite source between latest install and now.

2017.10.0 (2017-10-03)

Rose release 52. This release is expected to be used with:

Noteworthy Changes

#2117: Rose Metadata mini language: support len(this(N)) syntax.

#2114: rose_ana: import errors for external plugins are now pushed to the task level so a plugin import error will no longer bring down everything else.

#2109: rose suite-run, rose suite-restart, rose suite-clean, etc: now use the cylc-7.X contact file as an indicator that a suite is still alive. This should allow the commands to be faster, with reduced network calls.

2017.09.0 (2017-09-05)

Rose release 51. This release is expected to be used with:

Noteworthy Changes

#2106: rose app-upgrade: fix CLI help.

#2104: isodatetime: bundled library updated to 2017.08.0 release.

#2071: rose config-edit: support new element-titles metadata setting to allow users to put headings above columns in arrays.

#2070: rose suite-run: when installing a suite on a remote job host, it can now call itself on the remote host without invoking a login shell.

  • New [rose-suite-run]remote-no-login-shell setting in the site/user rose.conf to switch off/on usage of a remote login shell.
  • The old [rose-home-at] section in the site/user rose.conf file has been replaced by the new [rose-suite-run]remote-rose-bin setting. The new setting can be used to specify the path to the rose executable on different hosts.
  • See ${ROSE_HOME}/etc/rose.conf.example in your distribution for detail.

#2067: rose mpi-launch: fix usage of ROSE_LAUNCHER_ULIMIT_OPTS=-a.

#2064: rose_ana improvements:

  • AnalysisTask object now has a skipped attribute rather than just passed - if skipped is True, rose_ana will report on it differently as well as not considering it a failure overall
  • Overall summary line right at the end of the output which gives total counts of passed, failed and skipped tests.

#2063: rose config-edit: fix display of unnecessary scrollbars in dialogs.

#2061: rose config-edit: remove errors associated with a variable before removing the variable itself. This fixes the previously incorrect behaviour where the panel would continue to show an error after removing the variable.

Noteworthy Changes

#2043: rose macro: default macros will now apply to as well.

#2039: rose app-upgrade: improve diagnostics on removal of settings.

#2036: rose config-edit: fix namespaces stealing sort-keys from option sections.

#2034: rose config-edit: prevent radio buttons from filling full page width.

#2030: Rose Bush: suites list:

  • Fix links to suites with / characters in their names.
  • Follow symbolic links in ~user/cylc-run/ when looking for suites.

2016.12.0 (2016-12-22)

Rose release 47. This release is expected to be used with cylc-7.0.0 and fcm-2016.12.0.

Noteworthy Changes

2016.11.1 (2016-11-29)

Rose release 46. This release works best with cylc-6.11.2 and fcm-2016.10.0.

Noteworthy Changes

#2020: Rose Bush: fix task/job status filter for the pager widget.

#2018: rose macro: new --transform option to prepend all transformer macros to the argument list. The existing --fix option will still prepend all internal transformer (fixer) macros to the argument list.

2016.11.0 (2016-11-11)

Rose release 45. This release works best with cylc-6.11.2 and fcm-2016.10.0.

Highlighted Changes

#1996: rose_ana: new version.

  • Analysis logic is now specified via external modules, which in general are expected to be written or supplied by the user.
  • One such method is built into Rose (rose.apps.ana_builtin.grepper), it handles comparisons of text contents between different files or the output from simple commands.
  • Change in formatting of rose_ana app files (though apps in old format will fall-back to the deprecated behaviour; to be retired in a future release).
  • Failure of a single analysis sub-task no longer forces a fatal error in the main task.
  • Hopeful resolution of database locking issues (KGO database functionality is now opt-in, and the locking mechanism has been changed).

#1994: rose bush: improve tasks and jobs filtering:

  • Cycles list now displays number of tasks and jobs.
  • Cycles list now provides download links to those cycles with a log/job-CYCLE.tar.gz.
  • Jobs list can now be filtered by job status combinations and individual cylc task statuses.
  • Job list cycles filter can now use syntax such as <CYCLE (currently before CYCLE), >CYCLE (currently after CYCLE).
  • Improve display for screens with smaller width.

Noteworthy Changes

#2010: rose config-edit: better behaviour for environment variables in values metadata. Always display such settings as a radio/combobox (do not try to change to a textbox).

#2009: rose macro: add reporter macros. Adds a new Reporter macro type.

#2008: rose config-edit: fix macro optional_config_name kwarg (broken since 2016.07.0).

#2007: rose config-edit: change default to show fixed variables.

#2006: rose config-edit: extended multiple selection to groups. Stash entries can now be ignored/deleted for a tree of entries (i.e. in group view). If a parent section is ignored/deleted then this action will apply (recursively) to all child sections.

#2005: rose file install: new symlink+ mode that checks for existence of the link target.

#2004: rose config-edit: fixed integer widget updating.

#2003: rose config-edit: allow removal of empty elements in compulsory arrays.

#2002: rose config-edit: allow newline separators in space-separated list.

#2001: rose macro: don't run transform macros in validate mode.

#2000: rose macro: new --suite-only option.

#1998: rose_prune: fix bad fail message on non-suite host.

#1995: rose bush and rosie disco: ad hoc server can now have service name in URL.

#1990, #1993: User guide and tutorial updated to latest cylc usage.

#1988: rose bush: jobs list: fix paths in tar links. Previously a link to a log in a tar archive may take users to a random path.

#1987: rose config-edit: fixes an inflexibility in the third-party UM STASH widget when importing packages from metadata (a demo piece of functionality). It also fixes a problem with duplicated attempts at adding sections.

2016.09.0 (2016-09-14)

Rose release 44. This release works best with cylc-6.11.0 and fcm-2016.05.1, or their successors.

Noteworthy Changes

#1982: rosa svn-post-commit: fix handling of settings with ! ignored flags in

#1976: Rose Bush: job logs listing: now accepts log files with names in these patterns *.NNN.*, *.KEY.* as sequetial files.

#1972: Rose Bush: cycles list: only count cycles with non-waiting tasks.

#1970: rose config-edit: fix info dialog for variables.

#1968: Rose Bush: use file system listing for job logs listing - no longer rely on the task_job_logs table in the cylc runtime database.

#1965: rose metadata-check: add index entry.

#1963: Rose Bush: jobs list: use muted text style for zero size file links.

#1962: rose config-edit: fix source file page widget traceback.

#1959: rosie go, rosie ls: handle corrupt working copy edge case.

#1957: rose config, rose config-edit: reduce memory usage.

#1956: rose app-upgrade: speed up adding or renaming for large configurations.

#1955: rose bush: add rotated log files to the cylc files menu.

#1951: rose config-edit, rosie go: handle site/user incorrect value types.

#1950: rose config-edit: clearer exception handling on startup.

2016.07.0 (2016-07-22)

Rose release 43. This release works best with cylc-6.10.2 and fcm-2016.05.0.

Noteworthy Changes

#1947: rose app-run, task-run, suite-run, etc: file install: reduce commits to sqlite database that is used to store the state of file install sources and targets. If you are installing a large number of files, this change should offer significant improvement to the elasped time of the command.

#1943: rose metadata: fix referring to top-level-option ids in the fail-if and warn-if rules.

#1939: Rosie discovery service clients: on authentication failure, the clients will now keep retrying as long as the user enters entering different credentials from the previous attempt.

#1933: rose suite-run: log-*.tar.gz: is now created by a single tar command. For reference, the original inefficient logic was required because we had to support running Rose on old Unix systems that do not have access to a modern tar command that has the -z option. The old logic used Python's tarfile module to TAR up the log directory and then used the gzip command to compress the resulting TAR file (to avoid inefficient when using Python's built-in gzip logic with the tarfile module). It is now highly unlikely that we had to support running Rose systems that do not have access to a modern tar command.

#1932: Rose Bush: use os.stat to get last_activity_time in all Rose Bush pages, instead of performing an expensive query.

#1931: Rose Bush: remove a remaining Bootstrap 2 class from template.

#1929: rose config-edit: fix an error in the PageArrayTable widget, which fails when it attempts to display an array variable (i.e. a variable with the length metadata set).

#1928: rose config-edit: fix trigger latent section traceback.

#1915: rose macro: removed un-necessary prompting with optional configuration.

  • Allow macros to have a keyword argument optional_config_name which will be set to the name of the optional configuration used, if any.
  • Now only prompts once for unknown values when using optional configurations.

2016.06.1 (2016-06-23)

Rose release 42. This release works best with cylc-6.10.2 and fcm-2016.05.0.

Noteworthy Changes

#1921: Rose Bush: view search: fix incorrect URL that causes server to return 500.

#1920: rose.reporter: better unicode handling.

#1918: rose config-edit: fix right click menu segfault in summary panel.

#1917: rose documentation: fix oddity with the scroll spy widget when viewing the documentation as a single page.

2016.06.0 (2016-06-10)

Rose release 41. This release works best with cylc-6.10.2 and fcm-2016.05.0.

Highlighted Changes

#1905: rose macro, app-upgrade: fix section comment removal of options bug. This meant that on upgrade or macro change, some optional configurations could lose options from their sections. This happened only if the sections were also present in the main configuration and if they had a differing comment or ignored state in the optional configuration. Please check if you think this may have happened to you.

#1891: rose documentation: restyled with Bootstrap 3. User guide is now available in a single page as well as in multiple pages.

Noteworthy Changes

#1913: rose configuration: allows a greater range of characters in the indices for duplicate settings. This is prompted by the move towards including profile names in the indices for UM STASH namelists - many of these have characters like +, etc.

#1911: rose config-edit: cylc gui launcher: gracefully handle suites that are not running.

#1909: rose config-edit: don't show old_value in info dialog.

#1906: rose config-edit and rose macro: new --no-warn=version option to suppress default version to HEAD warnings.

#1903: rose app-upgrade: fix change_setting_value with forced=True.

#1902: rose-meta.conf: url: add section or ns root

#1900: rose config-edit: new menu item to rename a section.

Rose release 40. This release works best with cylc-6.10.1 and fcm-2016.05.0.

Highlighted Changes

#1884: rose macro: can now be used on a whole suite. Previously, it only worked at the level of an application configuration.

#1883: rose bush and rosie disco: web pages have been upgraded from Bootstrap 2.X to Bootstrap 3.3.6.

Noteworthy Changes

#1892: rose date: enable --as-total=TIME_FORMAT option when printing durations.

#1887: rose bush: view: will now serve a file in a tar-gzip archive automatically in raw mode if it contains Unicode characters. Previously, it would incorrectly serve the whole tar archive.

2016.05.0 (2016-05-05)

Rose release 39. This release works best with cylc-6.10.0 and fcm-2016.05.0.

User Interface Changes

#1867: rose app-run: fix file installation clash. Suppose we have both file/whatever.txt and [file:whatever.txt]source=somewhere/whatever.txt, the setting in the rose-app.conf should take precedence. A bug in the logic meant that this was not the case. This has now been fixed.

Highlighted Changes

#1808: rose bush: view: new search functionality.

#1879: rose config-diff: support optional configurations

#1870: rosie graph --text: new option print graph results as text.

#1863: rose app-upgrade: allow multi depth value for meta=value.

#1877: rose_bunch: bunch task result counts at end of job.

#1875: rosie go: cylc gui launcher: gracefully handle suites that are not running.

#1872: rose bush: job entry: link 0-size file any way.

#1871: rose bush: cycles: don't display cycles with no active or completed tasks.

#1869: rose stem: fix incorrect mirror variable when run within subdirectory.

#1866: rose suite-run --reload: skip logic that invokes cylc refresh.

#1865: rose_bunch: remove any existing database entries on first submit.

#1864: rose config-edit: add ability to specify initial namespaces.

#1861: rosie go: fix crash when all sources were unchecked.

#1858: rosie go: better gpg-agent cache expiry handling.

#1856: rose config-edit: add GUI dialog to manage metadata search path.

#1855: rose config-edit: show full traceback on macro crash.

2016.03.0 (2016-03-11)

Rose release 38. This release works best with cylc-6.9.1 and fcm-2016.02.0.

Highlighted Changes

#1824: rose suite- wrappers: make use of host information in cylc port files to detect whether suites are running or not. Delete a cylc port file and/or a rose suite host file if the system is able to detect that no process associated with the suite is running on the recorded host. This allows suite-run, suite-clean, etc to proceed if a suite is terminated with a left-over port file.

Noteworthy Changes

#1847: rose config-edit: fix other namespace state display on trigger. It could get a target namespace (page/panel) ignored state incorrect following triggering from another page. This fixes the issue.

#1845: rose task-env: fix alternate calendar mode issue. It was not using the setting in CYLC_CALENDAR_MODE. This fixes the issue.

#1843: rose config-edit: fix left hand tree panel error icons for macros.

#1841: rose bush: suites list and cycles list: fix fuzzy time logic. Restored display of time using fuzzy time for suites list and cycles list, broken by #1791. A toogle delta time button will now be displayed in suites list and cycles list for users to toggle between fuzzy time and ISO8601 date-time stamp.

#1836: rose_arch: status string for targets with bad statuses will now be printed to STDERR as well as STDOUT.

#1835: rose config-edit: fix crash on ignore/remove/disable multiple sections.

#1834: rose config-edit: fix upgrade button sensitivity and instructions.

#1833: rose_ana: value of tolerance setting can now contain environment variable substitution syntax.

#1806: rose date: new functionality to parse and convert ISO8601 durations.

2016.02.1 (2016-02-25)

Rose release 37. This release works best with cylc-6.8.1 and fcm-2016.02.0.

Highlighted Changes

#1814: rose macro: fix nested triggers for duplicate section options. The logic for triggering options in duplicate namelists was not right under certain circumstances. Some namelist:domain options in UM apps had incorrect trigger-ignored statuses. Some apps will have new, correct error statuses for these options when this version of Rose is used.

2016.02.0 (2016-02-11)

Rose release 36. This release works best with cylc-6.8.1 and fcm-2016.02.0.

Noteworthy Changes

#1825: rose_arch: fix incorrect behaviour on retry. If the previous attempt to archive was killed, a subsequent retry would do nothing, due to the premature insertion of the target in the rose_arch database. This is now fixed.

#1823: rose.config.ConfigNode: fix incorrect behaviour of the __iter__ method.

#1822: rose app-upgrade: fix trigger conflict with namelist prettification.

#1820: rose bush: view: fix internal server error caused by missing items in the job entry associated with the log.

#1819: rose CLI commands will now report information with a time stamp on -v -v verbosity.

#1811: rosie copy: on suite copy between 2 repositories, ensure that the destination prefix is used to determine the value of owner, etc.

#1809: Rose Bush: view: text mode is now the default, which means HTML tags will be escaped by default. Previously, it would render HTML tags in text files by default. You can continue to render HTML tags by using the tags mode.

#1807: rosa svn-pre-commit: should now stop trunk replace.

#1804: rose_ana: extra retry database operations on failure.

#1802: rose host-select: improve parser for ranking and threshold commands output, and in particular, the parser for the free -m command.

#1758: rose config-edit: speed up adding/deleting sections.
