Enhancements in EasyBuild v5.0

(for a full overview of changes in EasyBuild v5.0, see here)

Various significant enhancements are included in EasyBuild v5.0, including:


run_shell_cmd function

See dedicated page on the new run_shell_cmd function.


Enable --trace by default

The --trace option is enabled by default (see easybuild-framework PR #4250).

This makes the output produced by the eb command more informative, by providing more information about what's going on in the background.

To disable trace output, either:

  • Use the --disable-trace command line option;
  • Set the $EASYBUILD_DISABLE_TRACE environment variable;
  • Disable trace mode in a configuration file:

    [override]
    trace=0
