I've just released a new version of GsDevKit_home. To update to the new 
release run the following

   #update the GsDevKit_home components and devKitCommandLine image
   $GS_HOME/bin/updateGsDevKit -gi

I strongly encourage you to read the Release Notes for this release[1] 
as there are a handful of new features and a number of bugfixes.

The arguments and functionality has changed for several of the scripts 
(installClient, installServer, installServerClient, installOsPrereqs, 
setupGsDevKit, and downloadGemStone) and if you use these scripts 
directly you should understand the changes.

Probably the biggest change that is worth calling out here is that the 
installOsPrereqs script is called from installClient, installServer and 
installServerClient to make sure that the prerqs are installed before 
starting to use the system. If you want to arrange to do your own 
installation prior to running one of the install scripts, then look at 
these comments[2] for a way to bypass the osprereqs install.

Finally, since I mentioned it an earlier message[3], this release 
includes a mcz cache that is used while upgradeGLASS is run and makes 
the createStone step a bit faster and much less susceptible to network
