Kuali plans to upgrade Sponsored Programs modules to Tomcat version 8 on June 17, 2020. It’s important that we keep our tooling and infrastructure current to provide the most secure experience.
Kuali is running the entirety of our suite regression tests, both automated and manual for several weeks prior to this upgrade. Prior to releasing the upgrade, Kuali will also run tests against your configurations and data in SaaS staging instances. The upgrade should be seamless to SaaS customers and your end users, but we are providing advanced warning since this is a major upgrade. For the self-hosted customers, this is as discussed during the May Technical user group meeting.
As always, if you have questions or need assistance thinking through how this change will impact your local implementation, don’t hesitate to reach out.
