Update of environment modules to version 4.2.1

Posted on Fri 18 January 2019 in news by Tom Bradford

We have deployed the latest version of Environment Modules (4.2.1) across the cluster on all frontend and compute nodes.

A summary of changes introduced in the latest version:

  • The output of module avail is paginated (pass --no-pager to restore legacy behaviour).
  • Output from module sub-commands are printed to stdout rather than stderr.
  • Display default modules only with module avail --default.
  • Display the latest version of modules with module avail --latest.

We anticipate there will be no issues with loading and using modules; Job scripts will not need any modifications. Please contact us if you experience any issues.
