THIS WEEK IN ILIOS
With summer rising all around us, the Ilios team has decided to skip a code update this week, allowing some additional time for futher product development (and some time for a little sunshine, outdoor air, and non-code related activity). We will resume our regular cadence of updates in July.
If you are prepping for the AAMC Curriculum Inventory upload this year and desire any assistance, please remember that we are here to help, via email
And as always, please don't hesitate to send us a note at email@example.com
for any questions, comments, or help -- or just to say hello!
CURRENT RELEASE: v3.87.6
NEXT SCHEDULED UPDATE: 2 July 2021
NOTE: System Administrators, please remember that beginning with the next update, Ilios will require PHP 8. Please prepare your systems prior to updating beyond v3.87.6.
The latest code and the complete changelog for this release, as always, are available for download here:
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). In order to deploy, you will need to be provided with a secure access key. Please email us for complete instructions at firstname.lastname@example.org
: Are you interested in getting a focused training for your power Ilios users and managers in your school or institution?

Please contact us
if you are interested.
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.
The changelog for updates specific to the frontend can be viewed here.
