Our LRN 2.5 tests
We at Viaro tested dotLRN 2.5 this last few days and this are our results.
We tested it using Oracle 11G, doing both fresh installs and upgrades.
Doing a fresh install we did not found any problems.
Doing an upgrade from 2.4.1 to 2.5.0d2 on Oracle 11G
• Assessment now requires Views, so it asked for it while doing the upgrade.
• For some reason the first time we tried to do the upgrade the upgrade script upgrade-5.5.0d3-5.5.0d4.sql did not ran correctly, we were missing the column implements_subsite_p but a second test did loaded the file correctly.
• While upgrading ACS Events we got an error with a call done to: apm_package_version.add_dependency, it complains about having the wrong number/kind of arguments.
On both fresh installs and upgrades we ran the automated tests and did some manual tests.
We tested the normal operation of a few packages, including forums, file storage, faq, Lars blogger and the general use of dotlrn, like creating classes, everything seems to be working fine but we did noticed a weird problem on some dotlrn pages, especially the “assignments” portlet under the “class material” page inside a class. The problem is that the text, links, all, is painfully small to the point that is impossible to read.
