MSI software support depends on the software service level. Higher service level packages are updated more frequently.
If a new version of a major computational package, which is already available on MSI systems, has been released please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add as many details as possible in the email. For example, details about the current version and desired upgrade of software and systems on which it is currently available will be useful.
Note that you are welcome to install binaries or compile packages specific to your research in your home directory or project space.
