Windows support Alpha
You may have noticed that the recently-posted v0.3.33 release mentions "RQD Windows support". We on the OpenCue TSC wanted to provide a bit more information here.
With this release, the main OpenCue codebase has been updated to run Windows jobs. Both the client-side tools (CueGUI/CueSubmit) and RQD have been updated to work on Windows.
That having been said, there are some caveats:
In addition to that, there is a lot of new code so it's likely some subtle bugs are hidden in the there that we haven't found yet.
Given all that, we're considering Windows support in OpenCue to be at an Alpha level. We're definitely going to be doing more work to resolve the above issues, but we wanted to get our existing code out now so users can get started with some early testing.
We'd love to hear any feedback, especially if there are ideas/preferences around how we should resolve the issues I listed above. Feel free to write to the mailing list or file a Github issue as you'd like!
Huge thanks to Christian Smith at Microsoft Azure for driving much of the Windows development and testing!
