Known Issues

  • There is a bug in 6.1 that leads to duplicate titles and missing discussion threads in forums when updating from 5.4.x to 6.1, see also Mantis #28765. We recommend not to update a 5.4 installation to ILIAS 6.1. This bug is fixed with ILIAS 6.2 (will be published on 14 AUG 2020).

Changed Behaviour

  • The user configuration of  "show me in the who-is-online tool" has been changed to an "opt-in" due to bug #28970. A default setting has been added to the user administration accordingly. For details, see this comment in the bug report.

Updated Languages

  • Japanese language file, thanks to Shiro Tamoto
