Alright, so I did release a little brother for Dokeos 1.8.5 Beta today. We needed it for a customer of ours which is in development phase, and we had made a series of small but useful improvements to the Beta 1, so we decided that “why not?” and that a little Beta 2 couldn’t be harmful.

It can be downloaded from here

Basically, improvements are:

  • LDAP (tested in authenticated mode and added a field to define which value to search for in trying to recognize a teacher)
  • forum post alerts by e-mail
  • improved interface for creating new documents
  • removal of *many* notice-level warnings
  • speed and info improvements on users lists generation
  • isolation of exercises (was causing problems when opening an exercise from a link)
  • several fixes to buggy statistics for single DB mode
  • fixed courses descriptions bug (couldn’t edit course descriptions)
  • added informational messages in course copy to avoid user confusion

We are still working hard to try and get a definitive stable version out by the end of May or early June. We still intend to add several features to the whole thing (like *maybe* some kind of web services interface) which do not alter existing functions.

Can’t promise anything right now, but I’ll keep you informed.
