GlobalSight release 8.1.1

GlobalSight 8.1.1 is a minor release of the GlobalSight system. While it contains several minor fixes, the primary focus of this release is to increase unit-test coverage of the product, focusing on the filters and converters. Additionally, there are several longer-running efforts that are affected by this release:

  • The first phase of Passolo integration will be started during this period, although its inclusion in the actual release is TBD
  • The first round of work on the automatic action framework will begin
  • An overhaul of the terminology backend to replace the raw JDBC with Hibernate and to add test coverage will complete

For instructions on upgrading to the new release, see Upgrading GlobalSight.

Note: Due to schema changes to fix GBS:1953, the upgrade installer may take a long time to complete the database update, when run against a system with large quantities of either TM data or active job data. The schema update may take anywhere from minutes to several hours, depending on the volume of data in the database.
