JForum 2.2 for Sakai 2.1.2

July 11, 2006

Oracle support is the latest addition to the supported databases of JForum. Sakai-JForum 2.2 works with Mysql4.1+, Oracle, HSQLDB and PostgreSQL databases. JForum now makes use of Sakai’s database connection pool. And JForum tables are created in the sakai database.

JForum 2.2 will only run on sakai 2.1.2. You MUST make CK Editor the default editor in Sakai.properties (wysiwyg.editor=CKeditor).

What’s New in 2.2

  1. Oracle support (contributed by UC-Berkeley)
  2. JForum now makes use of Sakai’s database connection pool (UC-B contribution)
  3. Allow instructors to set start and stop dates for forums – instructors can make forums visible on start date/time and lock forum on stop date/time. (Etudes Project/Foothill)

Fixes and Enhancements

  1. AIM info does not display (fix contributed by Beth Kirschner, U of Mich

     

     

     

    1. Opens IM links in a new window (external to Sakai)
    2. Adds AIM link and icon to posted messages
  2. Hard returns were lost in Quick Reply (fixed)
  3. Reply with quote in PM revealed userid’s (fixed).
  4. Less JForum-specific configuration is needed (no database to configure)
  5. Fixed caching of user sessions (transient/serialization)
  6. Code clean-up for readability and performance
  7. Upgraded jboss-cache, which (according to JBoss) should fix the caching deadlocks.
  8. Added option to specify alternate jboss cache configuration path (see readme).

Release 2.1.1

March 31, 2006

JForum 2.1.1 for Sakai will only run on sakai 2.1.2. To make it compatible with sakai 2.1.1 or earlier versions, CK Editor needs to be added to the Sakai library. If you deploy JForum 2.1.1, you MUST make CK Editor the default editor in Sakai.properties (wysiwyg.editor=CKeditor).

Enhancements

  • JForum can now be run in a clustered environment.
  • Integration of CK Editor with JForum.

Bugs and Issues Fixed

  • Remove limitation to require users.present=true setting in sakai.properties.
  • Second page of topics not updated when forum exceeds 15 topics.
  • Launch page does not reflect accurate # of topics/messages or last author.
  • Recent topics “author” should be original topic poster.
  • File size upload limit is currently site aware. Make it configurable globally.
  • Default extension groups and extension types (allowed and banned) defined.

Release 2.1.0

December 2, 2005

JForum version designed to support Sakai 2.1.0 or higher.

Release 1.0.1 Updates & Fixes

November 18, 2005

  • Better synchronization between Jforum and Sakai users. Updates of users or accounts in Site Info and under Sakai Users, including role changes are respected and reflected in Jforum instantly (profile, member listing, and manage).
  • When attempting to manage as “admin” error message “Registration of new users is disabled.” used to appear. Sakai admin can access JForums first with no issues.
  • If first name and last name are blank, then Jforum considers the user as a site participant added via the guest feature of sakai. Jforum displays “Guest” for the user’s name in all areas of the software and respects her role. If name gets filled under Account, Jforum fills it, too.
  • Recent Topics lists full name instead of usernames.
  • Removed “can approve messages” in group permissions page, since message approval is not supported.

Release 1.0 

November 4, 2005

Version 1.0 addresses requirements and known issues since the JForum-Sakai Beta Version, released in October, 2005.

Requirements Completed
  • “Mark ALL topics as read” must be site aware
  • “Mark ALL topics as read” added in top menu
  • Bookmark feature must be site aware
  • Read new topics since last visit must be site aware
  • Search topics must be site aware
  • Statistics for total number of posts of users must be site aware
  • “Find users” lists full names of users – not userid’s (in PM)
  • “To user” field lists first/last name – not userid (in PM)
  • Search for users handles first/last name (in PM)  
  • Remove user permissions – group permissions handle this
  • Custom group permissions must retain unique values
  • Remove “ranking” from tool and requirements
  • Remove moderation/message approving requirement
  • Remove “who is online” – same as Sakai users present

Resolved Bugs

  • Clicking on “Recent Topics” returns an “Oops…” message

  • Facilitator default permissions incorrect (not enough power)
  • Email notification when PM is sent to user not working
  • Email notification was sent despite “off” setting in profile

  • And a few other little things…
