OpenSRF 2.1.2 release

OpenSRF 2.1.2
As of November 18, 2012, the OpenSRF 2.1.2 release is available for download from the OpenSRF downloads page.

This release corrects a problem where OpenSRF clients were unable to access the shared configuration section of opensrf_core.xml, resulting in errors. The most commonly observed symptom of this problem was an inability to registering new Evergreen workstations in the staff client after installing the OpenSRF 2.1.1 release.

The fastest means of updating your OpenSRF 2.1.1 release to 2.1.2 is to copy the version of src/perl/lib/OpenSRF/ from the 2.1.2 release over the installed version of the same Perl module. For example, on Debian Squeeze:

  1. cp src/perl/lib/OpenSRF/ /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1/OpenSRF/.
  2. Then restart all OpenSRF Perl services

Many thanks to Jason Stephenson for diagnosing the problem and providing the fix in such a timely fashion.
