uPortal 4.0.3 GA Announcement

Jasig is proud to announce the general audience release of uPortal 4.0.3. This release introduces a Event Logging framework which handles aggregation and purging of portal events to provide useful statistical reports. There have also been several significant performance improvements thanks to folks who are actively working to deploy 4.0. uPortal is now using Hibernate 4.0, Spring 3.1, and Ehcache 2.5, keeping our major libraries up to date and allowing deployers to take advantage of new features.

Important Update Notes

  1. The UP_MUTEX table has changed, for step 2 to succede please drop the UP_MUTEX table before running db-hibernate-update
  2. There are a few new tables in 4.0.3. To add these tables run ant db-hibernate-update once you have the 4.0.3 source installed.
