art e17 builds (gcc 7.3, c++ 17) will be available soon now that ROOT can be built successfully with gcc 7.3.

New Issues

The artdaq team would like to be able to disable all file output. This can be currently done using -o /dev/null from the command, or –no-output, or by having no output module in the input configuration. It was proposed that the behavior of -o /dev/null should be changed to treat /dev/null as a real filename, and the RootOutputFile would recognize that name as special.  Also -o MyOutModule:@erase would disable MyOutModule.
