*'''29 Mar. 2021 - ALICE User Survey 2021 out:''' The ALICE User Survey 2021 is online. All users should have received a link and password. If you are a user and you have not received a link, please contact the ALICE Helpdesk.

*'''01 Aug 2022 - ALICE system maintenance on 22 Aug 2022 - First announcement:''' We will perform system maintenance on ALICE on 22 Aug 2022 between 09:00 and 18:00 CEST. Our primary focus will be the high-availability set up of ALICE in addition to other maintenance tasks. This will require us to take all compute and login nodes of the cluster offline. It will not be possible to run any jobs and access data on ALICE. Until maintenance starts, you can continue to use ALICE as usual and submit jobs. Slurm will also continue to run your job if the requested running time will allow it to finish before the maintenance starts. If you have any questions, please contact the ALICE Helpdesk.
*'''29 Mar. 2021 - MATLAB 2020b available:''' We have updated MATLAB to version 2020b and changed the license server configuration so that ALICE can now make use of the MATLAB campus license. If you still need version 2019b, please contact the ALICE Helpdesk.

*'''01 Jun 2022 - Disabled access to old scratch storage:''' As previously announced, we have disabled access to the old scratch storage. '''We will keep the data available until 30 June 2022'''. Afterwards, we will start to delete data so that we can repurpose the storage within ALICE. You can request temporary access by contacting the ALICE Helpdesk. See also the wiki page: [[Data storage|Data Storage]].
*'''8 Mar. 2021 - Maintenance was successful:''' ''Login node 02'' has been expanded with an NVIDIA Tesla T4. The new GPU will be tested by us in the next few weeks. So, for now please do not use the GPU. After testing has been completed, we will release the GPU for general use and provide more information.
 
*'''25 Feb. 2021 - Next major maintenance window on 08 March 2021:''' Please have a look at the [https://wiki.alice.universiteitleiden.nl/index.php?title=News#Maintenance maintenance page] for details on our planned work and how it affects you.
 
*'''12 Feb. 2021 (Update 22 Feb. 2021) - SSH Connection Stability:''' If you recently started experiencing that your ssh connection is breaking up after a few minutes of being idle, please check the settings below for you ssh configuration for ALICE. If this does not solve the issue, please contact the ALICE Helpdesk.
 
** for Linux, MacOS, Windows using OpenSSH command line connection: Make sure you use "ServerAliveInterval 60" and "ServerAliveCountMax 3" to your ssh config settings.
 
** MobaXterm: Go to Settings -> SSH -> SSH settings and enable "SSH keepalive"
