  Roadmap and Releases

4.4.2 (stable)

Release 4.4.2 has been published on 26th March 2014.
Please read the ILIAS 4.4 features report for information about major changes and new features of this version.
Information about first time installation can be found here.
ILIAS 4.4 requires PHP 5.3 or higher.
Before upgrading an ILIAS installation of version 3.9 or lower to 4.4 you will need to upgrade to 3.10 first. Instructions for updating ILIAS can be found in section 3 of the general installation instructions. For major updates (e.g. 4.3.x -> 4.4.x) the safest proceeding is, to upgrade a copy of your productive system first and test whether everything works ok.
The formula question type is now integrated into the standard release. If you have been using the formula question type plugin before, please carefully read the instructions on the related wiki page.

Security Issues

Haunt IT Blog reported multiple vulnerabilities for ILIAS 4.4.1, see their blog posting.
The XSS issues have been fixed in ILIAS 4.4.2.
In contrast to the further statements regarding web shell uploads in their posting: This is not possible if ILIAS has been setup correctly. The ILIAS setup asks explicitly for a writable data directory outside of the webspace (outside of the document root of your webserver) to store files. Uploading and using web shells is only possible, if you specify a directory within your webspace here. Please do not do this.
