Sakai 2.5.5 Maintenance Release

Sakai 2.5 incorporates a large number of refinements and refactoring touches at both the tool layer and framework level. One new provisional tool (Reset Password) has been added, while two very successful provisional tools (OSP and Tests & Quizzes) have been promoted to the enterprise bundle. One core tool (Discussion) has been retired, being replaced by other options (e.g., Forums). The Sakai 2.5.5 maintenance release provides an additional set of bug fixes and security enhancements that improve upon the previous Sakai 2.5.4 release.

The Sakai 2.5 series is dedicated to the memory of the late Marc Brierley, a member of the Sakai community since its inception, whose work as a user interaction designer at Stanford University helped shape the Sakai release today.

(warning) Note: not all bug fixes in the 2.5.x maintenance branch are included in this maintenance release. Sakai 2.5.5 includes all bug fixes from previous Sakai 2.5 maintenance releases plus fixes for a selected subset of components (see below). This approach helps us reduce the scope of component regression testing in order to speed up the frequency of releases. Fixes for components available in 2.5.x, but not included in 2.5.5, will be included in a subsequent maintenance releases.

Migrating from a previous release

Migration from an earlier version of Sakai typically involves a database conversion (for which scripts are supplied with the release), an update to any custom skins, and possibly changes to any custom code.

For links to the conversion scripts, see the Database Migration section of this guide.

Changes in sakai.properties

In addition to new sakai.properties values introduced for Sakai 2.5, there are also some changes to address when upgrading from a previous version of Sakai:

  • SAK-10762 - Getting issue details... STATUS : In Worksite Setup/Site Info the names of properties associated with the ability to add participants via email address have changed:

    Old Name (Sakai 2.4 and earlier)

    New Name (Sakai 2.5.0 and later)

    invalidEmailInIdAccountString

    invalidNonOfficialAccountString

    noEmailInIdAccountName

    officialAccountName

    noEmailInIdAccountLabel

    officialAccountLabel

    emailInIdAccountName

    nonOfficialAccountName

    emailInIdAccountLabel

    nonOfficialAccountLabel

    emailInIdAccount.url

    nonOfficialAccount.url

    emailInIdAccountInstru

    nonOfficialAccountInstru

    noEmailInIdAccountValue

    officialAccountValue

    emailInIdAccountValue

    nonOfficialAccountValue

  • SAK-13205 - Getting issue details... STATUS : Upgrade OSP Permissions. If you are upgrading from a pre-2.5.0 version of Sakai, then you need to force conversion of the OSP permissions by setting osp.upgrade25=true in your sakai.properties file. (See also discussion.)
  • SAK-13403 - Getting issue details... STATUS : The properties associated with the WebDAV authentication cache have changed. In Sakai 2.5.0 and earlier the following properties were used:
    maximumSize@org.sakaiproject.user.impl.AuthenticationCache
    timeoutMs@org.sakaiproject.user.impl.AuthenticationCache
    failureThrottleTimeoutMs@org.sakaiproject.user.impl.AuthenticationCache
    
    These settings have been replaced as of Sakai 2.5.2 with:
    maxElementsInMemory@org.sakaiproject.user.api.AuthenticationManager.cache
    timeToLive@org.sakaiproject.user.api.AuthenticationManager.cache
    
    
  • SAK-10451 - Getting issue details... STATUS : Those upgrading from a pre-2.5.0 version need to change osp.reports.useWarehouse to sakai.reports.useWarehouse.

(warning) SAKAI_PERSON_T.NOTES field size change

Users who have been running Sakai prior to 19 July 2006 release of Sakai 2.2.0 should check the field size of the SAKAI_PERSON_T "Notes" field. A field size change was added to the 2.1.2 to 2.2.0 conversion script on 17 January 2007. Depending on when deployers executed the 2.1.2->2.2.0 conversion script for the 2.1->2.2 upgrade, this update may have been missed. See the following Jiras as well as the sakai-dev list discussion for more information.
