OurGrid 4.0 released

Good news from the South! The OurGrid 4.0 is out.

In summary: OurGrid is an open source, free-to-join, peer-to-peer grid, where users trade computational resources. The loosely coupled computational infrastructure is ideal for the execution of embarrassingly parallel applications.

I am particularly glad with this release, as OurGrid has been a useful tool in my previous studies. I used it to analyze traces of activity of content sharing communities. OurGrid makes it easy to harness the idle times of our desktop machines and monitor the progress of the computations in a much easier way.

Next week I will definitely give a try on the new version (as we are still using version 3.3).

The new site looks great too. Congratulations, OurGrid Community! :-)
