If you are running Sakai 10.6 this upgrade is of critical importance. Several of the fixes in 10.7 were regressions from 10.6, especially against Assignment and Samigo Test and Quizzes. Also, if your institution is using Oracle, the standard upgrade scripts need to be run, and in addition a few extra lines. 

  • Assignments tool (problems with older assignments after fixes in 10.6)
    • SAK-30233 - Regression after SAK-30087 cleanup on old assignment submissions.
    • SAK-30644 - Problems with assignment submissions that were created prior to 10.6
  • Samigo Test and Quizzes tool
    • SAM-2679 - Matrix question / answers change back to original selection after save/next/previous
    • SAM-2622 - Access denied error when attempting to download all responses, can only download responses individually
    • SAM-2690 - IllegalArgumentException when clicking 'preview' or 'print' while editing a published assessment
  • Portal
    • SAK-30173 - Error page when the URL requested is /portal. You could work around this by just running an older version of tomcat (prior to 7.0.66)
  • Oracle with Lessons - see  SAK-38249 - Lessons tool gets blocked when adding activities limited to certain groups in instances with oracle db Verified  .  See specifics below under Database upgrades.

+# Replacing From addresses in email
+# Major mail providers are starting to use DMARC, to demand that all mail From addresses from their domain
+# must be signed. Since we can't sign messages for another mail service, this means that email passed through
+# the archiver or generated by Mailtool / Messages will fail the test, and be rejected.
+# By default we now replace From addresses with postmaster@site, and move the original From address to
+# Reply-To. These properties control that behavior.
+# Should we replace the From address? true|false
+# Can also be an email address. If not specified the new from address is postmaster@site.
+# Example:
+# false if you don't want any replacement
+# DEFAULT: true
+# Should we have exceptions for the replacement? Any from address matching this Java regular expression
+# will be retained unmodified. You might want to include addresses within your own institution, since
+# they shouldn't cause any trouble unless your own institution is using DMAEC.
+# Note that mail addresses using your Sakai instance's server name will always be exceptions
+# DEFAULT: missing, no exceptions
+# When replacing the From address, what text should we use. {} will be
+# replaced with the original From address, e.g. John Smith (
+# DEFAULT: {}
+#mail.sendfromsakai.fromtext=On behalf of {}
