Sakai Roadmap

  • Sakai 2.6 (Current Release)
    • Sakai 2.5 is being maintained (Prior Release)
  • Sakai 2.7 (Release Date: end of April 2010)
  • Sakai 3 (In development: Milestone 1 available in April 2010)

">Sakai 2.6

The most current release is Sakai 2.6.2, which was released on January 29, 2010.

Support for older releases

Sakai maintains both the current major release and the prior one - which is now Sakai 2.5. Maintenance releases are regularly put out for these versions. The latest maintenance release of Sakai 2.5 is 2.5.6. Once Sakai 2.7 is released, 2.5 will only be maintained if a branch manager from the community volunteers their time to do so.


">Sakai 2.7

QA testing for [Sakai 2.7.0] is underway. The set of new tools and capabilities in 2.7 include:

  1. Site Stats
  2. Profile 2
  3. Basic LTI Portlet
  4. Conditional Release
  5. Forums UX improvements

Sakai 2.7.0 is expected to be released in April 2010.


">Sakai 3

Sakai 3 represents a rewrite of the Sakai framework, both technically and as a reimagined user experience. Its first set of designs came out of the UX initiative, and its early development has been led by Cambridge. A second UX design phase started in September of 2009, and will culminate in a milestone to be ready for QA by April 2010.

Sakai 3 development is a distributed effort with many moving parts, but they generally fall into one of 3 categories.

  • UX design (discussion happening on the sakai-ux email list.)
  • [UI development ] (discussion happening on the sakai-ux email list.)
  • [Kernel (back end) development ] (discussion happening on the sakai-kernel google group.)

    Efforts to inform S3

    Sakai 3 aims to be user-centered and design-led, and so its develop takes the insight and research of its functional and UX communities as key inputs:

    Milestones:
    The first deployable milestone should be ready for QA by April 2010. This first production milestone should establish a new UX framework for Sakai and begin to offer new capabilities for sharing content, authoring pages and workspaces, and setting up simple groups outside course and site contexts. The latest state of the development work can be experienced directly at http://3akai.sakaiproject.org/dev.

A second milestone is targeted for EOY 2010. Planning for this stage of development is underway.
