UNICORE Core servers 9.0.0 released

Version 9.0.0 of the UNICORE Core Servers is available for  download from SourceForge https://sourceforge.net/projects/unicore/files/Servers/Core/9.0.0.

We used this major release to remove a lot of “baggage”, update many of our third party dependencies and make UNICORE simpler to configure and manage. In terms of new features, every UNICORE/X server now comes with workflow processing capability for easily running single-site workflows. Furthermore, support for “interactive computing” via Slurm allocations has been added. Last not least, directly integrating UNICORE with a Keycloak OIDC server for user authentication is now possible.
