3.7.5 (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 3.7.5 has been released on January 18, 2007.

Release 3.7.5 is a bugfix release and does not contain major new features compared to release 3.7.0. Please read the 3.7.0 release report for information about major changes and new features.
Due to Bug #2134 there is a new option "Deactivate HTML" in the learning module editor now. This deactivates HTML rendering of content in the edit view. It has no effect on the presentation of the page.
Information about first time installation can be found here. Support for MySQL 3.23.x is not included anymore.

Important note for Updates: Instructions for updating ILIAS can be found in section 3 of the general installation instructions. For major updates (e.g. 3.6.x -> 3.7.x) the safest proceeding is, to upgrade a copy of your productive system first and test whether everything works ok.
