      Description

      At this point, all the major vendors that support LTI 2.0 have quietly decided to move away from LTI 2.0 and towards LTI 1.3 and ContentItem and follow-ons.

      LTI 2.0 has a few good features and a lot of bad ideas.  Sakai's LTI 2.0 (and almost LTI 2.1) is one of the best in the industry and one of only two certified LTI 2.0 LMS's.

      But even with all that it is a bunch of code that if never used is a liability for security and maintenance - and as new features like LTI 1.3, its services, and new follow-on specs emerge - it is nice to clean up a large amount of code to make space for new stuff.

      So at this point LTI 2.0 is deprecated in Sakai 19 and will be removed by the following release of Sakai unless something changes in the marketplace.

      If you have any concerns - or tools that require LTI 2.0 - please note them in this JIRA.
