I am happy to announce the availability of v1.4.3 of Profile2. 

This is a bug fix release and is a recommended upgrade for anyone running Profile2 1.4 or Sakai 2.8. 

Profile2 1.4.3

Works with:
Sakai 2.8, 2.9

Database upgrade:
There is no database upgrade required that is specific to this release. However if you are upgrading from Sakai 2.7 or Profile2 1.3 there are database conversion scripts you need to run. For migrating from Sakai 2.7, run the normal database migration scripts. Everything you need is in there. For just upgrading profile2 versions, apply the relevant database upgrade scripts from https://source.sakaiproject.org/svn/profile2/tags/profile2-1.4.3/docs/database/. Ensure you apply all of the upgrade scripts for 1.3 that apply to your environment.

SVN: https://source.sakaiproject.org/svn/profile2/tags/profile2-1.3.15/
Binaries: https://source.sakaiproject.org/maven2/org/sakaiproject/profile2/

Deployers running Sakai 2.8 should perform the following steps to upgrade:
1. Update the <sakai.profile2.version> in $SAKAI_SRC/master/pom.xml to 1.4.3
2. Remove profile2-help-X.jar and profile2-api-X.jar from $CATALINA_HOME/shared/lib (where X represents older version numbers)
3. Rebuild/redeploy the core-deploy project to fetch the new release and install it into Tomcat
4. Apply any database patches as necessary

Deployers building from source should perform the following steps:
1. Checkout the 1.4.3 tag using the SVN link above
2. Remove profile2-help-X.jar and profile2-api-X.jar from $CATALINA_HOME/shared/lib (where X represents older version numbers)
3. Build and deploy the 1.4.3 tag
4. Apply any database patches as necessary

This is a recommended maintenance upgrade for anyone running the 1.4 series of Profile2.
