titleHelp Keep the Roadmap Up-To-Date!

If you have updated planning information to share, you can either comment on this page or email the Project Coordinator (Peter A. Knoop). Thanks.

Sakai Roadmap


In the meantime, and with a goal of helping the community better understand and track the evolution of Sakai, it's important to keep the Sakai Roadmap up-to-date. So please do you part to contribute and keep up-to-date information on your activities, by providing periodic updates to Peter A. Knoop, the Sakai Project Coordinator, for aggregation in to this page.

For convenience, we are also compiling a list of links to other projects' Roadmaps on which key Sakai capabilities depend.

Sakai 2.x

Sakai 3.x

Kernel 1.x

With the release of Sakai 2.6 key supporting, back-end services were separated out into an independent kernel release, Kernel 1 (or K1). This was done in part with the longer term goal of providing a more stable, better organized framework against which to build tools, and to allow the framework and tools to evolve on separate time-scales. This separation was a key step on the way to rethinking kernel services for Kernel 2.

The goals for Kernel 1 (or K1) are:

  • Bug-fixing and minor improvements in support of continued minor and maintenance releases in the Sakai 2.x series through early 2012.

Kernel 2.x

Most of the information on Kernel 2.x can currently be found here.

The initial goals for Kernel 2 (or K2) are:

The Sakai 3.x series will eventually switch from being based on Kernel 1 to Kernel 2 in early- to mid- 2009. Sakai 2.x will not make use of Kernel 2 services, and will remain base on Kernel 1 services; however, much of the functionality of Sakai 2.x will initially be made available in Sakai 3.x through a compatibility approach.

Sakai Roadmap

Sakai 10

The most current release is Sakai 10, which was released on June, 2014.

titleSupport for older releases

Sakai generally maintains both the current major release and the prior one - which is now Sakai 2.9. However generally only critical bugs and security fixes are maintained in a previous release and in the maintenance release branch. It's generally recommended to upgrade to the newest version of Sakai shortly after it's released


Sakai 2.9

Sakai 2.9 was released in 2013 and is currently in maintenance mode.

The major set of new tools and capabilities in 2.9 include:

  1. Neo Portal 
  2. Lesson Builder
  3. Mailsender
