Release notes for the gem5art package


  • Update version now that it's in gem5


  • Minor fixes
  • Update documentation
  • Prepare for merging with main gem5 repository


Database now configurable

  • Instead of only working with MongoDB installed at localhost, you can now specify the database connection parameter.
  • You can specify it by explicitly calling artifact.getDBConnection() or using the GEM5ART_DB environment variable.
  • The default is still mongodb://localhost:271017.
  • All functions that query the database now require a db parameter (e.g., getRuns()).
  • Reorganized some of the db functions in artifact, but this shouldn't affect end users.

Other changes

  • General documentation updates
