3.8.2 (stable)

Very important notes for MySQL 4.1.x users:

If you update from ILIAS 3.4.0 or 3.4.1 and already used MySQL 4.1.x: Due to a problem in the UTF-8 handling some extra update steps are necessary. Please click here and follow the instructions.

If you just plan to update from MySQL 4.0.x to MySQL 4.1.x please read our Migrating from MySQL 4.0.x to MySQL 4.1.x instructions.
Release 3.8.2 has been released on August 20, 2007.

Release 3.8.2 is a bugfix release and does not contain major new features compared to release 3.8.0.

Please read the 3.8.0 release report for information about major changes and new features.

Information about first time installation can be found here.

Important note for Updates: Instructions for updating ILIAS can be found in section 3 of the general installation instructions. For major updates (e.g. 3.7.x -> 3.8.x) the safest proceeding is, to upgrade a copy of your productive system first and test whether everything works ok.

3. Survey question selection and question block presentation patch

Due to an untested security patch it was impossible to add questions to a survey. Also question blocks have been displayed wrong (only the first question in a block was shown as part of the question block). To fix theses issues, please download the following patch file. It contains the file class.ilObjSurvey.php. Please make a backup copy of the existing file Modules/Survey/classes/class.ilObjSurvey.php on your installation and replace it with the patch file extracted from the zip archive.

4. HTML special characters in LaTeX expressions patch

In survey and assessment, the characters \, { and } are converted to the HTML entities & #92;, & #123; and & #125; to prevent problems with the ILIAS template engine. These entities will be created too, if someone enters mathematical formulae without the ILIAS rich text editor which corrupts the formulae after modifing and saving. To prevent the conversion into the HTML entities, please download the following patch file. It contains the file class.ilUtil.php. Please make a backup copy of the existing file Services/Utilities/classes/class.ilUtil.php on your installation and replace it with the patch file extracted from the zip archive.

5. Media Pool Patch

Clicking on the previous next links in media pools tables results in an error.

To fix this, please download the following patch file. It contains a file class.ilObjMediaPoolGUI.php. Please make a backup copy of the existing file Modules/MediaPool/classes/class.ilObjMediaPoolGUI.php and move the patch .php file to directory Modules/MediaPool/classes/class.ilObjMediaPoolGUI.php.
