@RELEASE: 6.5-0


    ==== CL 11260 ====

    @NEW: add Python/Perl API access to the new "timecumulative" subjob and work data

    ==== CL 11257 ====
    @NEW: add support to the data warehouse for the new "cumulative time" instance and work columns

    @NEW: added ReadMe.rtf for the osx supervisor installer, so that the person installing the supervisor is made aware of the upgrade potentially taking a long time to complete.

    ==== CL 11247 ====
    @NEW: add tracking of cumulative time spent in the "running" state for subjobs (instances) and work (agenda items), stored as an additional DB field in the Nsubjob and Nwork tables.

    These values are computed by taking the elapsed number of seconds since the last start time of the instance/work, and then multiplying it by the number of actual job slots occupied by the instance, as dictated by the "host.processors" reservation.

    JIRA: QUBE-124, QUBE-125

    ==== CL 11201 ====
    @NEW: add DB conversion scripts (to add new subjob table columns introduced in 6.5, DB version 32) that run when the rpm/pkg/msi supe installer runs, to provide forward-compatibility for old (pre-6.5) job/subjob data

    Objects are always disabled now, unless the job explictly specifies
    otherwise with the new "enable_windows_job_object" flag.
