This is great! I must have missed it completely (tracking all the Release notes
is a nioce job if you've got nothing else to do b)


Glad you like! Condor v6.8.0 added a lot of really nifty built-in ClassAd functions: if/then/else conditionals (my favorite!), regular expressions, lists, string manipulation, regular expression substitution, rounding functions, time functions... really useful stuff. The regular expression stuff is all PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions).

See section of the v6.8.0 Condor Manual
for documentation on a bunch of them. I think a few are still being documented (the v6.8.0 documentation is a bit behind, we hope to be caught up soon), but certainly plenty already there to get you rolling.
