ART Suite Release Notes 1.09.03 (2014/05/06).

General improvements.

The setup time for products has been improved. For LArSoft (comprising about 55 products) on a lightly-loaded GPVM machine (utilizing bluearc for common product areas) the time is generally <4s, even when the products' setup files aren't already in the machine's cache. After someone on the machine has done this once, the setup time goes to <1.5s. On a more heavily loaded machine (say, 2 load units per core with several analysis jobs running), the setup time is 15-20s pre-cache, and 10-12s post-cache. These tests were done with UPS_OVERRIDE=-B and the command time setup -B larsoft v1_01_00 -q+e5:+debug.
