Portal Server 7.1 Update 1 Release Available For Download

OpenPortal Portal Server 7.1 Update 1 is a maintenance release addressing major bug fixes from the previous releases along with some significant new features and enhancements. In particular, this release addresses some of the gaps specifically around community functionality. The new feature set includes the ability to create private  communities, allowing cross community search and management of communities via admin console. Other notable features include the AJAX portal container and the ability to create blogs.

For Solaris and Linux platforms, the release is available both in the form of an upgrade (via patches) and as a fresh install.

For Windows platform, we have taken a simple approach and are making this release available only in the form of a  pre-configured install, without an upgrade option. The main reason for taking this approach is that the earlier release of Portal Server 7.1 on Windows (part of Java Enterprise System 5 bundle) was somewhat difficult to install and required quite a few workarounds to configure the product.

This release simplifies the install experience and speeds up the evaluation and development  process. It is highly recommended that the Windows release should mainly be used for development and  evaluation purposes. 

The Portal Server 7.1 Update 1 release is available for download at this location.

Also note that the Java Application Platform SDK streamlines enterprise application development and improves developer productivity. A new version, Update 3 Preview 2,  is now available for download. In this release the Portlet Container has been updated from the earlier 1.0 beta version to 1.0 FCS.

Friday Fun: How much is The Portal Post worth?

OK, so this did the rounds on the blogosphere many months back and The Portal Post missed out on the fun (er, pun).

So let's spin it, shall we. Here we go --


My blog is worth $7,339.02.
How much is your blog worth?


 

Ah, so, not so much when you compare it for example to Jonathan's near $ 1M valuation.. but a modest start.. And thanks to your readership (and authorship, for those taking the time to write on this space) we hope the stock continues to climb... :-)

Note: if you wish to dig deep on how this is calculated, read basis/assumptions/limitations from the source (e.g. this is based on Technorati sources).
