“That country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay. That country...whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain.”

― Ray Bradbury

Greetings! For many of us, the Thanksgiving holiday is rapidly approaching, full of good food (too much of it), gatherings with family and friends (sometimes too much of that as well!), and generally celebrating our continued existence (never enough!). And while we indulge in our carb-laden feasts, the ilios team is leaving you with a few improvements to your Curriculum Management Platform. 

     Better selector for assigning pre-work: The enhanced selection tool for assigning pre-work to a session is now easier to use, with cleaner searchable listings of sessions:

     Ability to set timezone for an offering: When scheduling an offering time, you now can assign that offering a specific timezone. This allows for easier management and scheduling when you are responsible for scheduling of activities in far-flung locations. Times will still be presented to users in correct local time.

Along with these new features we have continued to move forward with our under-the-hood code improvements and bugfixes. If you have questions please don't hesitate to send us a note at And have a happy holiday!

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

The changelog for updates specific to the frontend can be viewed here.
