The next major release, Sakai 2.6, is now in QA, its first release candidate is anticipated in December 2008, and its official release is scheduled for Mid July, 2009.
With the release of Sakai 2.6 key, supporting, back-end services were separated out into an independent kernel project, 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 the Kernel 1.x series are:
- Bug-fixing and minor improvements in support of continued minor and maintenance releases in the Sakai 2.x series through early 2012.
Most of the information on Kernel 2.x can currently be found here.
The goals for the Kernel 2.x series 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.
