Externals Update, master branch (2021.08.23.)

Upgraded all projects to atlasexternals-2.0.113. The updates wrt. atlasexternals-2.0.112 are the following (atlasexternals@2.0.112...2.0.113):

  • Introduced the ATLAS_ALWAYS_CHECK_WILDCARDS cache variable in AtlasCMake (ATEAM-769);
  • Prevented AtlasLCG from unnecessarily adding duplicates to the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH environment variable;
  • Fixed the dictionary handling with Ninja with CMake >=3.20 (ATLINFR-4186);
  • Upgraded GDB to version 10.2 (thanks to @ssnyder);
  • Added the build of CORAL and COOL to projects not using tdaq-common, in case these are not available from the configured LCG release (ATDBOPS-116).

The last update is meant to make non-TDAQ-dependent projects functional with the latest LCG nightlies, as discussed in ATDBOPS-116. It should however not change where COOL/CORAL is picked up from in our main master builds.

Finally, I've set ATLAS_ALWAYS_CHECK_WILDCARDS to TRUE by default in the WorkDir project. Hopefully making the lives of code developers a tiny bit easier. 😉
