This is a beta release of Mahara 1.1 Sonorus. Things will be broken! However, we are now soliciting bug reports, should you find a bug. You can report bugs to the tracker:

Please choose 'HEAD/trunk' as the version of your bug.

This release is one in which upgrading from the 1.0 stable version is possible. This does not mean that this should be done on a live website! Furthermore, upgrading from this release to any future release will not be supported either, so please perform any testing you might want to make on either a new install of this release or a copy of your 1.0 site.

This release includes:

  • Allows users to be subscribed to forums automatically when they join a group
  • Form post emails are now threaded in e-mail clients that support this
  • Lots of tidyups to wall post display
  • Lots of fixes and improvements to view copying support
  • Many other bug fixes, in particular to email sending, the MySQL upgrade path and language packs

As mentioned above, the upgrade should not be attempted on a live site yet. Instead, make a copy of your database and dataroot, set up a new Mahara using them, and test upgrading on that.

Also as mentioned above, upgrading from this release will not be supported.
