  Roadmap and Releases

3.8.4 (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 3.8.4 has been released Friday, Nov 16th.
Release 3.8.4 is a bugfix release and does not contain major new features compared to release 3.8.0. Some changes have been done related to the news functionality due to usability reasons.

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.

Fixed Bugs

  • News/RSS: Usability Fixes due to forum discussion and ILIAS development conference decisions. News related to the same forum are aggregated on the personal desktop. The same applies to file related news in container objects (groups, courses, categories). The notification option is abandoned, users may select other news periods on the personal desktop (if activated in the adminstration). (Alex Killing) New administration settings are (compared to 3.8.3):
    • "Allow Shorter/Longer Periods": Users may select shorter or longer news periods on the personal desktop.
    • "RSS Period": Set time period for RSS news feeds.
    Additionally tutors/admins can set a starting date for news in group/course/category related new blocks.
