Posted by Joseph Carpenski on 12 December 2012 06:05 PM

Release 2.12.1031

• Added the ability to configure automatic recover or discard of SCORM lesson data from disk to database. This enhances the SCORM lesson data recovery feature introduced in release 2.12.0615 by allowing the LMS Administrator to choose if unsaved SCORM lesson data should be automatically recovered or discarded for the user, or if the user should continue to decide.

• Enhanced the performance of group enrollment distribution functionality to prevent deadlocks and timeouts when adding a user to a group that contains group enrollments.

• Changed the "Data Saved" message/link on the lesson launch screen to say "Click here to go back to the course details page." This more accurately reflects the page the user lands on upon clicking the link.

• Changed the “User > Enrollment > Modify” page to allow settings on a user’s active enrollment to be changed without requiring the start date to also be changed.

• Changed the “User > Enrollment > Listing” page to prevent settings on a user’s completed enrollments from being changed.

• Changed the “Session > Add User” page to function properly in Internet Explorer 9.

• Changed the user’s lesson listing page to only display an active link to a “Web Meeting” lesson 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the “Web Meeting.”

Release 2.12.0615

New Features

• Added the ability to purchase or enroll in all courses contained within a catalog.

• Added the ability to synchronize SCORM lesson data from disk to database. This allows the most recently committed SCORM data for a lesson to be recovered in the event it is not successfully written to the database.

• Added the ability to encrypt the control panel and/or database passwords in the _global.asp file.

• Added enhancements to Active Directory synchronization to allow synchronization over SSL, and allow extra LDAP query parameters to be added to synchronization.

Bug Fixes

• Changed the session roster page to properly display the course name.

• Changed “Main Menu” items to allow links to contain IP addresses.

• Changed the “My Account” page to properly highlight the last tab of the enrollments menu when properly selected. This was an IE8 bug.
