Dear Techies,

The Sakai Core Team is happy to publish Sakai 10.1 for general 
availability (aka production)! Congratulations worldwide team! You did
an awesome job.

Sakai 10.1 builds on the solid work of the Sakai 10.0 release. Sakai 
10.1 includes almost 200 fixes. Some of the highlights include:

* Elastic Search upgrade from 0.9.0 to 1.1.2 and removal of legacy Search
* IMS Common Cartridge 1.3 support within Lessons. This makes IMS CC in 
Sakai capable of exchanging data with Moodle, Blackboard, and Canvas.
* Over a dozen security fixes.
* A number of updates to French and Chinese translations and about 1 1/2 
dozen internationalization fixes including full i18n support in the Peer 
review feature of Lessons.
* Improved handling of deleted groups in the Assignments tool.
* Basic validation to Single Uploaded File option to prevent students 
submitting an empty assignment.
* Performance improvement in Forums
* Significant fixes to Forum Rank feature
* Gradebook row highlighting, for easier grading.
* Close to a dozen Accessibility fixes.
* Ability to remove an entire help category (like OSP).
