New Features in Grouper 2.5

 Grouper 2.5 includes many helpful new features, as listed below, as well as the enhancements provided in Grouper 2.4 patches, such as visualization and reporting

The upgrade from 2.4.0 to 2.5 is not generally a major upgrade.  The database did not change much. 

You are required to use a container when running Grouper. This will ensure you have consistent directory structure, the correct version of libraries, and low risk and low effort upgrades.  There are instructions to make using the container as easy as possible.
