Six Feet Up Upgrades its Clients to KARL 3.82

April 16, 2012

Six Feet Up has recently completed the migration of its KARL clients to version 3.82. KARL is an open-source product that powers collaborative intranets for organizations like Open Society Foundations, Oxfam, Eurasia and United Nations. It is positioned as a lighter-weight and more nimble alternative to Microsoft SharePoint.

This new version of KARL comes with a variety of new features, enhancements and bug fixes:

New features:

  • Implemented new feature to allow community moderators to delete files and wiki pages permanently.

  • Implemented new feature to add sorting facets to the “Advanced Search” view.


  • Changed the default calendar view from day to month.

  • Sped up search results involving a large time span (such as “past year”) using a new kind of index with multiple levels of granularity. Also added an evolve script to perform the conversion.

  • Resolved the issue of distorted pictures displayed on people’s pages.

  • Added main navigation link to the Office’s Staff Calendar.

  • Added in the localization of dates to Karl

  • Improved the usablilty of the Trash

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed bug related to folder listing sorting.

  • Fix problem with non-ascii characters in exception error messages in both the error page view and the postoffice quarantine view.

  • Fixed tag error on “Manage Communities” page.

  • Fixed bug in “Show file” view where unicode filenames could cause an error.

  • Fixed issue where some links to the wiki trash were incorrect.

  • Fixed issue where reverting to an older version of a file didn’t update the search results: KARL users could receive results pointing to a version that is no longer available or not find an item that was recently reverted.

  • Fixed cross browser compatibility bug that caused the ‘Multi Upload’ button to disappear.

  • Fixed an issue related to the display of proper page titles on member management pages.

  • Fixed search results view to show the last person who modified a piece of content, not creator.

  • Fixed bug that caused the current layer selection on the calendar to revert to “All Layers” when clicking “More Events”.

  • Fixed a series of IE bugs.
