Important Release Update (4/13/2011):

After extensive testing and investigation, we have determined that the problems encountered were not introduced by the changes in, and we have reposted the downloads, available from your purchases page.


NOTE: Please be aware of the fix: CS-24646 in this release.  If you are using a federated authentication system (Active Directory/LDAP) your federated users have not been receiving the weekly system digest emails, with CS-24646, we added the ability for these users to now receive the digest.  There is a known issue in the product: the email digest task can cause an out of memory error depending on numerous factos with a deployment (number of users, amount of activity, number of application servers, and speed of email server).  In 4.5.6 (coming out in May) we have added options to throttle the digest task to account for variances in deployments, but until then, we recommend the following:

  • If you have federated users, disable this task by setting the following system property: jive.digest.enabled = false
  • If you have been using the email digest task with no problems, then you can safely ignore this notice.
