     39 * ''tempest,'' an evolution of the ''pacman'' tool. Tempest separates group membership determination and package action determination into separate helper commands. As an example, this allows the user can specify a group based on a !CoMon query consisting of nodes that have more than a certain amount of free memory.
     40 * ''raven,'' a tool for one-step software installation. Raven greatly simplifies the process of deploying software packages on a slice.
     41 * the ''Stork'' repository now runs in mod_python infrastructure of Apache. This allows the repository to take advantage of Apache's authentication and load balancing
     42 * ''iftd,'' a data transfer daemon that will allow Stork clients to access files via a variety of transport protocols such as http, ftp, !BitTorrent, and !CoDeploy. Protocol handling and error handling are encapsulated in the iftd daemon, freeing individual Raven tools from having to perform these functions. We anticipate deploying iftd in the next quarter and it will eventually replace the arizona_transfer module the Raven tools currently use.
     43Please see the quarterly reports (below) for more details.
