Profile2 1.3.14 released

I am proud to announce a new release of Profile2 in the 1.3 series

Profile2 1.3.14

Profile2 is a complete re-design and re-development of the existing Profile tool in Sakai. It gives you more of a Facebook style interface for editing your profile.
In addition you have a comprehensive set of Privacy controls to allow you to choose who can see what part(s) of your Profile.

With Profile2 you can post updates (integrated with Twitter), search for people with common interests, view their profiles, view their connections,
add them as a connection, and much more.

Profile2 can be run seamlessly alongside the existing profile in Sakai and integrates with the Roster tool.

Works with:
Sakai 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8

This release requires a minor database upgrade. You will need to apply the relevant upgrade script that is located in the /docs/database
