Important Changes

  • ILIAS Page Editor
    • With Release 7, the ILIAS page editor was fundamentally revised. As part of the page editor, the content style was also adjusted and redundant text and block formats removed. You can see the list of removed paragraphs here:
    • When updating to ILIAS 7, please bear in mind that the changes in the content style will affect your existing content. To prevent this, you can export the content style before an update OR download the ILIAS 6 Default Content Style from the following link:
  • Setup
    • With ILIAS 7 the GUI for the Setup has been abandoned. Installing and updating ILIAS is now handled by a command line implementation of the setup. The features for maintenance mode and multi-clients have been removed completely as discussed in the context of the Setup Revision. For more information about the new Setup please have a look into the detailed documentation of the setup in the file setup/ or take a look into the ILIAS installation instructions at docs/configuration/
  • Migration of files
    • In addition to the new setup via CLI, since version 7 ILIAS also requires that so-called migrations are carried out after an update. With ILIAS 7, such a migration is, for example, that files are migrated from the file object into the new resource storage service. These migrations can already be started after the update in live mode. To do this, run# php setup/cli.php migratein the CLI for more information.

Known Issues

  • The are various open issues in the setup:

Changed Behaviour

  • Basic permissions for owners changed – streamlined handling of read_outcomes with read_learning_progress:
    • Until now, users who created an xAPI object and had no additional permissions for this object type got besides the usual permissions like visible, read and delete also the permission read_outcomes. This has been changed now for all maintained versions.
    • From now on, behaviour is similar to the permission to read the learning progress of other users. The permission read_outcomes is no longer given to owners but has to be granted by a dedicated role.
    • In addition, roles with read_learning_progress given have now the permission read_outcomes, too.
