Important Changes

  • Services/PDFGeneration
    • Since the development for wkhtmltopdf has stopped and the consumer for the service are regressive, the jour Fixe decided to deprecate the PDFGeneration Service with ILIAS 8 and to remove this service with ILIAS 9
  • Plugins
    • Plugins which provide a configuration screen must add an explicit `ilCtrl` directive in the PHPDoc comments of the `il*ConfigGUI` class.
      • Example:
        • /**
           * @ilCtrl_IsCalledBy ilMyPluginConfigGUI: ilObjComponentSettingsGUI
          class ilMyPluginConfigGUI extends ilPluginConfigGUI
              // Code ...
    • Many public methods of class `ilPluginAdmin` (often considered as public API of the component service in ILIAS by developers) were removed. The class itself is marked as deprecated and will be removed in future ILIAS releases. Plugin developers should use `ilComponentRepository` and `ilComponentFactory` instead. Implementations of these interfaces can be retrieved from the dependency injection container ($DIC["component.repository"] and $DIC["component.factory"]).
    • Please always execute a `composer du` command if you put a new plugin into the plugin directories in your filesystem or if you applied any changes to your `plugin.php`. Otherwise the plugin will not be listed in the global ILIAS plugin administration or may cause other problems.

Changed Behaviour

  • [Competence Management] With #31251, the behaviour of achieving competence profiles in container objects changed. From now on, not only competence entries from the object itself have an impact on reaching the competence target, but also all the competence entries from the child objects of the container object.
  • [Competence Management] With #33467, the behaviour of selecting competence profiles in container objects changed. From now on, users cannot select all competence profiles, which they are assigned to, within the container object. Only competence profiles, which were selected in the object (e.g. by a course tutor), will be shown to the user. Additionally, a message box informs the user about the limited selection and offers a link to the global overview of competence profiles.
  • See changes concerning uploading ZIPs and unzipping here: Drag&Drop Files in Container Objects
  • The former administration node 'xAPI/cmi5' has been renamed to 'LRS' because only settings for Learning Record Stores can be edited there. Global administration settings for xAPI/cmi5 do not exist.

  • Working Time in Questions / Test / Question Pool Test has been removed in ILIAS 8.2 with Mantis #36325 in ILIAS Test and ILIAS Question Pool Test.

Updated Languages

  • Japanese language file, thanks to Shiro Tamoto
