What's New in Chamilo 1.11.16
- Many vulnerabilities (more than in any previous version) have been reported to us (see our security page) and swiflty and safely fixed. Thanks to all white hat hackers for helping us out (see their nicknames on the page).
Possibly breaking changes
- An important change has been made in the way Chamilo 1.11.16 processes exercises, questions and answers in the exercises tool. We now use the iid field as a unique identifier for everything related to exercises. Although the corresponding code has been well tested, an issue has appeared which only affects portals that were initially installed with a version prior to year 2016. If you are in this case, you will need to run the tests/scripts/fix_quiz_id_to_iid.php script (available here). This script must be edited and line "exit;" on line 15 must be removed, then the script can be loaded and could last a considerable time to execute. It should be failsafe, so if it fails once, reloading it should just continue executing the process. Despite the possible extra effort, we believe you will appreciate the advantages of a faster exercises tool in Chamilo 1.11.16 and the possibility to re-use (*or* copy) questions between courses.
- A new change in behaviour in the upload of images in the WYSIWYG editor mean new files that have names that already exist on the system will be renamed automatically. The previous behaviour was to warn the user, but this didn't appear on screen due to the WYSIWYG editor.
