I guess I have to go back to 6.6.9 and wait until those changes make way
Will it be 6.7.9 or the next one?
Am I right to assume that the upcoming 6.6.10 will keep the old style
behaviour in this case?
Please make sure that information about those changes is added to the list
changes an new features in documentation.
STARTER_JOB_ENVIRONMENT macro is too difficult to use at this stage for me
as all our windows compute nodes are deep-frozen.
