 Bug fixes

  • Bug #23317 (art): The trigger-paths bit assignment now reflects the order specified in the trigger_paths parameter.
  • Bug #23881 (art): An unprotected memory access has been fixed to avoid segmentation violations whenever an exception is thrown during the read(Sub)Run framework function call.
  • Bug #24427 (art): A more informative error message is produced whenever product retrieval fails.
  • Bug #23656 (fhicl-cpp): Users will get a more helpful error message if an unsupported string value is presented to the FHiCL parser.

 Known issues

  • The ability to specify the negation operator ('!') in selector expressions was unintentionally disabled in this release. It has been restored in art 3.06.01.
  • Due to a faulty fix of the trigger-bits ordering problem, art/ROOT files produced with this release can be corrupt. The problem has been fixed for art 3.06.03.
