Since the adoption of JQuery globally in Dokeos though, things have changed, and although *nobody* financed that development (which I am quite disappointed about, actually), we have taken the responsibility to put it inside 22.214.171.124.
This is one more big step in the run against Moodle, which seemed to loose speed constantly for the last two years (see activity graph on Ohloh), and for which we were always getting justifications like:
- more flexible (we still have some work to do on the graphical flexibility here)
- supports UTF-8 (technically, we now do this as well, and support might actually be better than in Moodle, we didn’t check that)
- allows for timed exams (126.96.36.199 will support that)
- is faster/more efficient (I am still waiting for data to prove argument and I seriously doubt it)
We are also working constantly on improving the time and scores tracking overall, as this is a highly sensible matter for most of us.
The rest of the features set that varies is generally considered moot (=not important/useless) by users in many cases, but we have a bunch of things that Moodle doesn’t have yet.
Now as we prepare for Dokeos 2.0 and Moodle 2.0, I’m growing more curious about how this is all going to work in the future.
As answered to Denis in the comments below, Dokeos 188.8.131.52 will never exist as 95% of its developers (myself included) moved to the Chamilo project after major organizational issues were left un-addressed for months.
This being said, what was supposed to be released in Dokeos 184.108.40.206 was released in Chamilo 220.127.116.11 in January 2010 and improved in 1.8.7 released in May 2010. Feel free to download it from our website or test it on our free campus.
This includes the exercises timer, yes.
