We continue to stay "green" and on track in all four quadrants.
This month we are working on a number of issues: the development of a model to better handle selectives in curricula; deploying search to our hosted ilios customers; and improving on our cloud architecture for better performance and tuning, and overall lower costs.
Our current release, v3.67.2,
provides you with all the latest improvements to the system, including improvements to the CIR -- so update now to take advantage during this upload season!
You asked: We delivered
A longstanding request for Ilios has been to enable the built-in capacity to associate individual learners with their activities -- rather than always requiring learner groups -- so that single learners can easily be attached to activities, whether for individualized learning, elective activity, or remedial tracking purposes. This month we are beginning the work necessary to allow this to occur directly in your interface. Since this will require some significant refactoring of the offering management tools, we expect to release this feature sometime in late fall of 2019. So keep your eyes open and an ear to the (virtual) ground for further updates!

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.
