3.7.6 (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 3.7.6 has been released on February 26, 2007.

Release 3.7.6 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.

3. Assessment patch for anonymous tests

If a test runs in the public area and anonymous is allowed to access the test, an access code is generated after test start to provide the anonymous users with access to resume a test or to view the test results. Unfortunately there is an endless loop which generates always new access codes but does not redirect into the test.
To fix this, please download the following patchfile. It contains the file tpl.il_as_tst_anonymous_code_presentation.html. Please make a backup copy of the existing file assessment/templates/default/tpl.il_as_tst_anonymous_code_presentation.html on your installation, then unpack the patch file in the directory assessment/templates/default to overwrite the existing file.
