Subclipse 1.1.6 is now available for download.

As with previous 1.1.x releases, this release is only available for
Eclipse 3.2/Callisto users. Details on these releases can be found on our

web site here:

http://subclipse.tigris.org/callisto.html

The changelog can be found here:

http://subclipse.tigris.org/subclipse_1.2.x/changes.html

Details of this release are reproduced below. There are a lot of changes
in this release, hopefully all for the better! This release does NOT
include the binaries for Subversion 1.4, but it does include the 1.4
version of the JavaHL JAR file as well as the code necessary to load BDB
4.4 on Windows. So you should just have to drop in the 1.4 binaries to
use them. On platforms other than Windows, you just install the 1.3 or
1.4 binaries at your own choosing. We will likely do a 1.1.7 release as
soon as JavaSVN support for 1.4 is available.

Well I guess we have made it to the big leagues: sakaiproject.com

It looks like we should have registered the .com domain too! :P

Open Source App Connects Professors, Students

Rutgers used to use WebCT, a similar piece of course-management software, until a new version of WebCT was developed. The university considered this too expensive, however, hence the switch to Sakai, said University Director for the Office of Instructional and Research Technology

Event review: Sakai day Europe

Hello world, Sakai a well-known learning management system and framework for tool building has had its first European Congress in the beautiful town of Lübeck in Germany. A relatively small campus town Leubeck is well known for its churches and marzipan and related confectionary…

Sakai itself is a robust highly scalable Learning platform written in Java. Being educationally orientated and open source its license is Apache-like and allows for good relationships with partners that are more commercial. If you have itchy fingers and are interested in instant contact with the product, you could download an archive file, unpack and just run locally. No configuration or other changes are required. Log in on http://localhost:8080 as admin, admin now you are the boss.

Rutgers: Software manages classes

The University used to use WebCT, a similar piece of software. The company that produced it was then bought by a company that makes a similar piece of software, Blackboard, and a new version of WebCT was developed that the Rutgers considered too expenseive, hense the switch to Sakai, said Charles Hedrick, University Director for the Office of Instructional and Research Technology.

WebCT is expected to be phased out of use in 2007.
