Just incase we need the patch to resolve SAK-20058 (and I keep getting contacted about it), I created a better version of the patch for 2.5.x (SAK-16074) to automatically enable compatibility mode for IE9 in the request filter.

This should work, but I haven't tested if the property name is valid or not yet. I also don't have easy access to IE9. So if someone else has an easier way of patching and running this it would be great.

The property is "sakai.X-UA-Compatible", and by default it will not enable any compatibility. i also attached a patch for the config project because i believe a default of

to emulate IE8.

Patches for config and kernel for this issue.

Comment by Matthew Jones [ 25-Mar-2011 ]

Config patch didn't work with quotes in the name.

Can these patches go into trunk? Are they under serious consideration for 2.8?

Comment by Noah Botimer [ 29-Mar-2011 ]

Testing of this patch is successful on trunk and 2.8.x. It solves the serious rich text breakage presented and is likely advisable in the general case for 2.8, given that we have not done thorough QA with IE9. I recommend that this be included for the 2.8.0 release, even given the late date.

Let's get this into trunk. Anthony, can you do the honors?

Comment by Anthony Whyte [ 29-Mar-2011 ]

kernel trunk r90897; config trunk r90894.

Merge these fixes to kernel-1.2.x only after trunk is tested and verified. We should back port to kernel-1.1.x and kernel-1.0.x and follow up with new kernel releases for all three branches.

Integrated in kernel-trunk #288 (See http://builds.sakaiproject.org:8080/job/kernel-trunk/288/)
KNL-697 merge the Jones patch.

Tested on local trunk build and this appears to fix the reported issue with FCKEditor

Comment by Alan Berg [ 30-Mar-2011 ]

Trunk appears to have broken tools

FCKeditor appears to ber working fine.

Not going to look further

Suggest moving patch to 2.8.x and testing again against a server with 2.8.x otherwise some of the noise might actually be (though small chance) caused by the Patch.

Comment by Anthony Whyte [ 01-Apr-2011 ]

1.2.x, r91039; config-2.8.x, r91040.

Comment by Anthony Whyte [ 05-Apr-2011 ]

config-2.7.x, r91330; kernel-1.1.x r91329.

Comment by Noah Botimer [ 18-Apr-2011 ]

Shouldn't we convert this to a Bug/Task, retitle it something like "Enable IE9/IE8 Compatibility Mode", verify, and close it?

Comment by Seth Theriault [ 14-Jun-2011 ]

Merged to 1.0.x, r93813 and config, r93814 (manaul merge). By default, 1.0.x is now emulating IE8.
