THIS WEEK IN ILIOS
As we approach the end of October, we hope that Ilios is continuing to provide for your needs, and as always we are eager to hear you feedback as to how we can improve the platform to better address the needs of your users.
CURRENT RELEASE VERSION: v3.69.4
NEXT SCHEDULED UPDATE: 11/8/2019
The current release (our 24th for 2019!) includes a number of enhancements and fixes to improve the system, including bugfixes to the CI, search indexing, and more.
We have a number of initiatives that are in progress right now, which we will describe more in the upcoming monthly status report on November 6th. These include a facelift and notable improvements to the offerings management tools, including user assignment and time zone selection; the addition of vocabulary term tagging to learning objectives; new rollover features; and enhanced CI Report management tools.
In the meantime, if you have questions please don't hesitate to send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
The latest code and the complete changelog for this release, as always, are available for download here:

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.
