Forum OpenACS Q&A: aolserver 4.0 final?
I am currently running a German 3.2.5 site with AOLserver 3.3.1+ad13, but would like to install oacs 4.6 and dotLRN 1.0 in the near future. I only have one static IP + my provider gets easily scared by crackers so he closed down all ports but 80 and 443 or better
I tried to get access to the aolserver mailing list archive, but...
1. I had to register for simply reading the archived messages, which kinda sucked. So I registered!
2. I didn't get a reply message for around an hour. I almost thought that they would want to send it to me via UPS
3. After I finally received the email, I logged in and received the following message:
"Sorry, you are not authorized to browse the archives of the AOLSERVER list from the address you entered in the login screen."
I've seen problems with the mailing list before. If you send an email to Nathan Folkman (shmooved at aol.com) he should be able to sort you out.
The current AOLserver 4.0 betas have full support for virtual hosts and internationalization in the core modules - a few non-core modules might need updates. (Don has already updated nscache.) More AOLserver 4.0 testing and bug reporting with OpenACS, dotLRN, and i18n specifically would be terrific, if you have time - the more bug reports and patches people submit, the sooner it can be released! I'd say the betas are definitely stable enough for development and testing purposes. I also believe AOL has started stress-testing it internally.
Peter (Alberer), you mentioned some problems concerning templating in another thread and on the aolserver mailing list. You are probably using internationalization down in Vienna?!
Again ... this is a Tcl problem but AOLserver 4.0 requires Tcl 8.4.* so it's placing 4.0 on hold.
I imagine this bug my crop up as an item of discussion in today's AOLserver IRC chat session.
Full chat log available at http://empoweringminds.mle.ie/openacs/chatlog/ or from SF.
That´s right we are currently running aolserver33+ad13 and openacs-4. As the whole site is currently in german we need the internationalization parts of +ad13. I hope we can soon upgrade to oacs4.7 and I am also really looking forward to aolserver4.
