Congratulations and Thanks to entire Liferay team. Awesome Work.

This zip file works and I could run Liferay without any issues.

Ran it and at the outset, it looks great. Checked couple of things randomly. Workflow doesn't seem to work. When I try to create new workflow under Workflow Portlet via control panel, it just throws an error. Nothing has been emitted in Tomcat log.

I know it may take some time to stabiliize but just wanted to let the team know it.

Again.. hats off.

Cheers,

Raj

Hi Raj - We've found that there can be some issues between workflow and the 7cogs sample data that we shipped 6.0 with (see http://issues.liferay.com/browse/LPS-11273) - if you start a clean bundle with just Kaleo-workflow deployed it should work without any problem.

Just to let you know, the link to Liferay 6.0.3 Javadocs in the additional files page for liferay 6.0.3 (http://www.liferay.com/downloads/liferay-portal/additional-files) is broken.

When will liferay 6 EE release?
Posted on 7/19/10 1:52 AM.
Thanks Brian and Liferay team. This release is a big step forward in Java portal world
Posted on 7/19/10 3:43 AM.
Sorry, but having used the release candidates I feel this release is premature. It is not stable enough to be dubbed a GA
Posted on 7/19/10 5:09 AM.
There is no liferay-portal-dependencies-6.0.3.zip file. It may not have changed from 6.0.2, but a new zip should be created that has the same version #, please!
Posted on 7/19/10 7:11 AM.
Hi,

Thanks for the good work. I noticed that the reports-console-portlet which was working in release 6rc2 has stopped working in 6.0.3GA. I have already posted details about the error in another thread -http://www.liferay.com/community/forums/-/message_boards/message/4450096
Posted on 7/19/10 8:22 AM.
Thank you very much! I will try it now.
Posted on 7/19/10 9:12 AM in reply to Pius Onobhayedo.
Liferay 6 looks nice but I have the feeling the upgrade procedure hasn't been tested very well. I tried, with my colleague Hubert, to upgrade from 5.2.3 -> 6.0.3 without success. Hope the upgrade procedure will be updated asap.

Hi Leon - Please see the above tickets you mentioned for my comments/questions.

I found this "Stack overflow at line 117"
in myaccount tab of the control panel
Posted on 7/19/10 6:15 PM.
Due to there not be a dependencies zip, we are unable to install liferay-portal.war, since the portal-service.jar files has changed, so we receive the following stack trace:

Please upload a dependencies.zip file!!

Pulling the portal-service.jar out of one of the bundled zips (I chose tomcat) is a workaround for me, but please upload the dependency zip (isn't this an automated process?)
Posted on 7/19/10 7:07 PM in reply to Dana Oredson.
Just uploaded the dependencies zip. Missed that one somehow. Here it is:

Hi,

An amendment of last post...The jasper report console malfunctions only when I enable alfresco CMIS.

Thanks.
