What is "Structure Inheritance" for CMS? Is it permission inheritance?
Posted on 12/12/08 7:32 AM.
no, that's inheriting structure elements so you don't have to re-add the same elements ...
Posted on 12/12/08 11:24 AM in reply to Ilya Zverev.
I hope a JBoss 5.0 bundle will be included when it is released.
Posted on 1/12/09 10:42 AM.
This is good news. Does it come with auth.simultaneous.logins re-enabled? I realised it was disabled (deprecated) in the 5.1 version.

"Chat window persistence between pages"

Is there a progress/design for this feature? This is a top request by one of our schools, and I have a developer slated to look at this feature, but would be more than happy to help during development or testing depending on where this item is at.

Hi,

What does "sponsored" mean?

When is this release planned? Any release date, any tentative deadline???

Will the Glassfish bundles be available?
Posted on 1/20/09 1:06 AM.
It means that a company has paid Liferay for the development of this feature
Posted on 1/20/09 4:36 AM in reply to Ricard Castellet.
What about social office.

Is that bundled with 5.2 or out-of-box?
Posted on 1/20/09 11:07 PM.
Hi Zaheer,

Social Office is its own separate product. However 5.2 will ship with integration with SharePoint protocols as well as a revamped Mail portlet:

thats great , and how about the stability, will it be as stable as version's from 5.1 or more stable and powerful then those.(defenitely it will be more powerful in terms of new features added such as share Point integration and all, just concerned about the stability as we are planning to do our next project on this version).

Any news about Social Networks concepts in Liferay? Will the Shindig portlet be available in this version???

Dan Mendes
I am also interested in the ability to integrate OpenSocial widgets into my portal!

Private Messaging Portlet: I can't find it. Where can I read more?

Distribute Read / Write operations between two separate databases: Is it possible to configure MySQL Master/Slave instances for that? How is it handled at Hibernate layer?
Posted on 2/18/09 9:25 AM.
Dear Jason,
I read that you are using liferay in your schools.. We are also want to use similar solutions in our schools. How we can get information from you that showing some use cases ? Showing an example more effective to tell what is possible with liferay...

Thanks

Hey Wilson Man!
Where can I find this feature?

Thanks!
Posted on 5/18/09 3:32 PM in reply to Wilson Man.
Dear God, please make it so Liferay can actually provide people with some scrap of documentation for each of their new features. In this case documentation of the "New Browser Sniffing API" would be great.
