mojoPortal 2.1.6 Released

mojoPortal 2.1.6 is now available from the download page.

This release adds a new Site Statistics Module and some bug fixes.

This will be an easy upgrade if you are running mojoPortal 2.1.x with no custom modules of your own because there are no schema changes in the db. If using MS SQL or PostgreSQL you need to re-run the script that creates stored procedures.

If you have custom modules you have implemented yourself, you should test your code with the latest source code. There were some major namespace re-organizations that may have broken your custom code. See my previous blog post, and if you need help changing your code so it works with the new changes in mojoPortal, please post in the forums and I will try to help.

If you have custom skins, you may also need to tweak the css for the menu, see the included skins css files for changes I made there.

As always be sure and back up both your db and your site before attempting an upgrade. If you run into problems post in the forums and I will help.

Please, tell about your plans on svn branches.
As far as I remember, after this release you were going to implement some new features so that the latest code becomes unstable.
What branch is recommended from now to develop custom modules on?

What I mean about unstable is I will be working on new features that require db schema changes and I may commit my changes for one data layer before I begin work on another data layer so depending on which data layer you are using it may not build.

branches/2.x will always be kept stable
branches/joesandbox2 is usually going to have the newest code but may not always be stable because this is where I work on new features

May be, you shall write into svn commit comments when your commit is not compilable or require schema changes?

Have you run MoMA (www.mono-project.com/Moma) on mojoportal 2.1.6?  Just wondering since I would really like to be able to move to the 2.x version, but I don't want to run on IIS.  If there is any point in it, (I don't know since I am not very familiar with 2.1.6 yet) I might try to muck around with it this weekend.

Hi Zak,

No I haven't had time to try Moma. By all means if you have chance please do and let us know what it reports. I have been working with some folks on the Mono team to resolve issues preventing mojoPortal 2.x from running but I've just been working through them 1 at a time. If we could get a report identifying things needed that would be great. The things that are blocking right at the moment are actually implemented but just not working correctly. Once the current issue is fixed there will likely be others and maybe Moma can help identify those ahead of time.

Thanks,

Joe
