collect Rock 2.0 Released

We are pleased to announce that Rock 2.0 is now available. Rock is OBiBa’s R computation engine.

This Rock 2.0 release requires Java 21.

Upgrade actions - If the default Java installed in your system is not Java 21, you must install Java 21 (any vendor), update the path to the java executable in the file /etc/default/rock, and restart the rock service.

As an example:

# location of java

Additional notes:

  • No upgrade action required when Rock is deployed with Docker, just pull the latest image.
  • The Rock API has NOT been modified: it will seamlessly integrate with Opal.
