The CAEN Lab Software Environment (CLSE) will be upgraded to Microsoft Windows 10 for the Fall 2016 term. The change will improve the performance of our software on-demand environment, better support newer computer hardware being released, and provide a similar operating system that students have on their personal computers today.

CAEN will continue to deploy dual-boot computers with both Microsoft Windows and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) in the CAEN computer labs. RHEL will be upgraded from 7.2 to 7.3, which is an incremental update with only minor changes to the environment.

This “Release Notes” web page has been created to post the updates and additions related to the CLSE changes. The availability and locations of test workstations will also be listed on this page.

In addition, CAEN has created two Google Sheets that list the version and deployment status for each software title planned to be included in the CLSE for the upcoming academic year:

If a course requires a version of an application that is not shown in the above documents, instructors may complete the request form.
