Human readable release notes
See the GitHub release page for human-readable release notes.
- Requires Servlet API 2.5 to run. Tomcat 6.0 is the first version of Tomcat to support Servlet 2.5. You probably actually want a recent Tomcat 7.
- Requires Java 7 ("JDK 1.7") or newer. Java 8 ("JDK 1.8") might also work, but wasn't the target version for this patch series.
- Data export and import is required when upgrading from uPortal 4.0.x or earlier.
