New application version - 1.46

Atlas news - Sat, 02/06/2016 - 09:11
Dear All,

This new application version is the same as 1.44.
We had an issue with the latest task (some jobs were failing), that was the reason of version 1.45 (with more VM memory).
In version 1.45 the image memory was increased, yesterday we found the real reason of the failing jobs.
We reverse the version since there was no need to have more memory and larger image.

Thank you!
Efrat
