THIS WEEK IN ILIOS
No release this week, but a number of updates and reminders for you all.
First, we have added a number of performance improvements and bug fixes for the interface; we continue to work on a number of under the hood improvements for the platform.
We also want to remind you that this is the final week that Ilios will support the v1 API; after this month any connection to Ilios from external sources will need to use the new v3 API. The last day of API v1 support is currently Friday, 29 January
if you have questions about this change, or any other items, please don't hesitate to send us a note at email@example.com
Current Ilios Version: v3.85.0
Next Scheduled Release: 29 January, 2021.

You can now plug the Ilios events & calendar dashboard, as well as the course manager, directly into your LTI-compatible LMS pages. It's as easy as clicking your mouse (two or three times).

How to Update Your Frontend:
The Ilios frontend is always up-to-date on our content-delivery servers at Amazon S3, but you will need to regularly run a console command on your backend instance in order ensure that your users are seeing the latest version and that they are getting all the latest features and bugfixes. To make sure you users are receiving the latest frontend code at all times, just follow the steps described here:
Though you will probably never need to deploy the Ilios 3 Frontend on your own servers, the source for the frontend code can always be found at https://github.com/ilios/frontend/releases.
