Feature Change

Description/Notes

Affected Release

Rocky Linux (CentOS 8)The 21-4 release will be the last to support CentOS 8. With RedHat's announcement that they will not provide updates for CentOS 8 after 2021 we are switching to testing and supporting Rocky Linux from the 22-1 release onwards. We will continue to support CentOS 7 throughout its lifecycle.21-4

CUDA library upgrade

Schrödinger Suite: GPU compute nodes and workstations will need a CUDA 11.2 (or above) compatible Nvidia driver installed to run our GPU enabled products. As a result of the above CUDA upgrade, support for ALL Kepler architecture cards (K80, K20 and K40) is deprecated in the 21-3 release. Nvidia states in their latest release notes that “the features still work in the current release, but their documentation may have been removed, and they will become officially unsupported in a future release”. If you still rely on K80 cards for computation for the Schrödinger Suite we recommend exploring newer options.

RHEL/CentOS 6 will reach their EOL and will no longer be supported after this release. Please upgrade to RHEL/CentOS 7.
