I am very pleased to announce that the Sakai connector portlet has had an update and is released as version 1.4.0.
This portlet allows you to render tools from your Sakai environment inside uPortal. It is completely configurable, and each user can choose a tool from any of their Sakai sites to display in the portal. It uses a combination of web services and and implementation of the IMS Basic Learning Tools Interoperability specification to connect you to Sakai from within uPortal.
This release includes an improved Basic LTI launch, as well as an improved editing UI for when multiple connector portlets are on screen at once.
