ROOT production release v6.14/00 is out!


#1

Hi,

The ROOT team is happy to announce the new production release v6.14/00! It contains several major new features, including:

See https://root.cern.ch/content/release-61400 for downloads and release notes.

This release is dedicated to our ROOT Workshop in Sarajevo, 10-13 September 2018: come and register at https://cern.ch/root2018!

A big thanks to everybody who contributed to the release, be it with development, patches, bug reports or ideas. We would not have this release without you!

Best regards,

Axel, for the ROOT Team

What are these new coding conventions that led to RDataFrame? In a couple of years are we going to be looking at a mishmash of R prefixed and T prefixed classes?

Hopefully the new conventions are based on the C++ Core Guidelines.


#3

https://root.cern.ch/blog/rootrwhy explains why new classes are called ROOT::RSomething.

The compilation on macOS with Xcode 9.4.1 fails if c++17 is enabled with:

In master this seems to be fixed by commit 5c1921a4be42c195c4490521de35774f5f1a2aa0, could this be cherry-picked to the 6.14 branch as well?


#5

Just to add, I can confirm I also am seeing these build failures.


#6

@Axel should we pin this?


#7

I have been trying to build ROOT 16.14/00 with Ubuntu 16.4 and GCC 4.8.0.

I get the following error every time I run “cmake --build .” in the build directory:

3 posts were split to a new topic: Windows install issue with v6.14/00

#10

Done, thanks for reporting! It will be part of a v6.14/02 that we expect in a couple of weeks.


#11

A post was merged into an existing topic: Windows install issue with v6.14/00


#12

Some more info on the fresh new RDataFrame interface in this post.


#13

@uzair90 Please try again with GCC 4.8.5 or newer. ROOT needs full support for C++11, and GCC 4.8.0 does not have it yet.

Edit: This specific problem may actually be a problem with dependencies in CMake, however (see ROOT-9478).


#14

And Ubuntu 16.04 comes with GCC 5.3.


#15

Hello,
I am also having trouble with root installation. This is the error I am getting:

This is my gcc version ubuntu 18.04:
gcc (Ubuntu 7.3.0-16ubuntu3) 7.3.0

How do I fix this issue?

Thanks,
Arka


#16

Hi Arka,

see Guilherme’s comment in the linked Jira ticket: https://sft.its.cern.ch/jira/browse/ROOT-9478?focusedCommentId=85968&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-85968

you should add the line

set_property(GLOBAL APPEND PROPERTY ROOT_BUILTIN_TARGETS VDT)

right after line set(vdt ON CACHE BOOL "" FORCE) in file cmake/modules/SearchInstalledSoftware.cmake.

Cheers, Axel.


#17

Alternatively, without making any change to ROOT, you can do (in the build directory):

$ cmake --build . --target VDT
$ cmake --build .

The problem is that CMake fails to add a dependency on VDT, so it is not built early enough.
This is being fixed here: https://github.com/root-project/root/pull/2205.


Error during compiling ROOTVecOps on ROOT v6.14.04
#18

The problem is fixed. Thank you very much.


#19

It’s also fixed on the master and 6.14 branches as well, so when 6.14/02 is released, this will not be a problem anymore. Cheers,


#20

Hi,
Will there be a binary distribution of v6.14 compatible with SLC 6.9? This doesnt seem to be the case at the moment. Hence one cannot set it up on lxplus - SLC 6.9 from CVMFS either.
And trying to compile ROOT v6.14 on SLC 6.9 runs into other problems, such as requiring cmake version 3.4.3 which doesnt seem to be available for SLC 6.
Any suggestions would be very welcome.
Thanks
Halil
