Release notes 

This is a stable release of Mahara 1.1 Sonorus. Stable releases are fit for general use. If you find a bug, please report it to the tracker.

This release includes an upgrade path from 1.0. If you wish to upgrade, we encourage you to make a copy of your 1.0 website and test the upgrade on it first, to minimise the effect of any potential unforeseen problems.

Major points to note:

 * You cannot upgrade from a version before 1.0 - instead, upgrade to 1.0 first
 * Once you have put the new code in place, you may need to do a hard reload in
   your browser (Ctrl+F5) to load any theme changes
 * Some APIs, such as the blocktype API, have changed a bit since 1.0. Your
   custom plugins may need updating, you are encouraged (as always) to test before
   upgrading your live site

This release includes:

 * View Templates (View Copying)
   - You can now mark Views as able to be copied by other users who can see the
     View. This gives people the option of using a View as a starting point to
     create their own View.
   - As a result of this, the Site Admins and Institutions have their own Files
     and Views sections, that they can use to create Views for others to copy
   - Work funded thanks to Glasgow University/Howard Miller:
 * Group Improvements
   - Groups now have Files and Views, which can be collaboratively authored
   - Navigation improvements
   - Group owner is replaced by having one or more Group Admins
   - Artefacts no longer have to be owned by people, now Groups, Institutions
     or the Site can own artefacts
   - Groups can be made publicly viewable, including the forums. Users can be
     automatically subscribed to forums when they join groups
   - Work funded thanks to GLISI/Ray Merrill:,
 * Import API
   - Mahara now has an API to import content from external systems. Currently
     Moodle 2.0 can use it to send Moodle content to Mahara via their "Portfolio
     API" -
   - Work funded thanks to Moodle HQ:
 * Profile Views
   - Users' profile pages are now Views, which allows them to re-arrange the
     layout of their page.
   - New blocktypes are provided to help users show their information - My
     Views, My Groups, My Friends and Wall (which allows other people to leave
     comments for users)
 * Minor improvements in these areas
   - Performance (less queries/page, less files included)
   - Executing /usr/bin/file is no longer necessary to determine file type,
     which makes it easier to run Mahara on shared hosting and other OSes like
   - Access to Views from people not in the system can be arranged by
     generating cryptic URLs on the View Access page
   - Upgrades to included libraries: HTMLPurifier, Smarty
   - E-mails from forums are now threaded in e-mail clients that support this
   - Addition of BBCode to the system to provide simple formatting options in
     places where the HTML editor is impractical
   - Addition of a "Register your Mahara" feature to help us get a picture of
     what Mahara installations there are around the world

As mentioned before, when upgrading from 1.0, please attempt it on a copy of
your site first, to test that you will enjoy a trouble-free upgrade.
