Questions on the release? Email sakai-dev@collab.sakaiproject.org.

Appropriate bug fixes (no new features) are being merged from trunk to the 2.5.x Maintenance Branch. At periodic intervals, Maintenance Releases are created from the Maintenance Branch. So you are encouraged to treat the most recent Sakai 2.5 Maintenance Release as the recommended version of Sakai 2.5.

Jira Information

Some short-cuts to relevant views in Jira for Sakai 2.5-related information:


Sakai 2.5.x Maintenance Branch

Only bug fixes are being merged to the Sakai 2.5.x Maintenance Branch, no new features are being introduced. This branch will form the basis for #Sakai 2.5 Maintenance Releases.

Database Schema Changes

Schema changes are sometimes required to resolve bugs. Each time there is new DDL associated with a bug, the release manager will create a file that includes only the pertinent changes, and name it according to the pattern below. Each time there is a maintenance release, those files will be rolled up into conversion scripts for that release.

If your Sakai instance is based on releases, then all you need to do is run all intervening upgrade scripts. For instance, if you are upgrading from 2.5.1 to 2.5.4, then you need to run the 2.5.1-2.5.2, 2.5.2-2.5.3, and 2.5.3-2.5.4. (Note that not all releases will have upgrade scripts, as sometimes there are no db schema changes required.)

If your Sakai instance is based on a revision of the 2.5.x maintenance branch, then you need to determine which scripts are applicable based on your current revision of 2.5.x and the revision you wish to get to. The Subversion revision numbers in the table should help you identify which scripts you need to run.

If your Sakai instance is based on pulling patches selectively from 2.5.x, then you will need to manually determine which scripts are appropriate to run.

The individual script(s) are located in the source repository at: https://source.sakaiproject.org/svn/reference/branches/sakai_2-5-x/docs/conversion/, while the release roll-ups are included in the release itself.

Sakai 2.5 Maintenance Releases

Maintenance releases will be tagged from the 2.5.x Maintenance Branch at periodic intervals for up to two years after the initial release of Sakai 2.5.0 (or longer, if there is sufficient community interest and resources.) The Maintenance Releases will include bug fixes merged from the Maintenance Branch for a selected subset of components, rather than all available fixes in the Maintenance Branch at that point in time the tag. Maintenance Releases will be subjected to a short period of focused QA, which will target the areas of change in the code. Only a selected subset of components is included in order to keep QA manageable and the interval between releases short. As a result, the Maintenance Releases will lag the Maintenance Branch in terms of completeness of fixes, however, this trade-off is important in enabling a high-frequency of well-tested Maintenance Releases.


Sakai 2.5.1 Maintenance Release

Sakai 2.5.1 Release Discontinued

During the final stages of the 2.5.1 release process a series regression was identified. This issue, as well as a few other key fixes are addressed in Sakai 2.5.2, therefore, we have elected to discontinue the 2.5.1 release process in favor of releasing Sakai 2.5.2 as soon as possible instead.
