  • Improved performance and concurrency

    Posted by: Fagbokforlaget admin 29. May 2018 15:46

    We're still working on improving things, and more improvements will come in a short time.

    This update (7088655) brings with it the following changes:

  • Performance enhancement: A secondary database connection (non-transactional) is now used to perform high-concurrency activities, to minimize waiting between clients.
  • Performance enhancement: Session refresh is also performed much less, which should allow increased concurrent activity.
  • Performance enhancement: We've decreased the amount of times the database is updated with information about when the last time a logged in user did something.
  • Performance enhancement: Logging of last access time on objects and containers has been disabled for anonymous users. For logged-in users it will now only happen if the object is considered "interactive".
  • Bugfix: Android browsers should now be able to see something more than just a blank page.
  • Enhancement: Album folder layout has been greatly improved.

    • Improvement: Cleaned up the layout and behavior of the file manager.
    • Bugfix: The radio quiz type now supports multiple correct answers correctly.

  • New update with group enrollment feature and various bugfixes

    Posted by: Fagbokforlaget admin 29. May 2018 15:46

    The update applied today (1743821) brings with it the following changes:

    • New feature: It is now possible to create institution groups that students can enroll into without supervisor intervention. The new group_enrollment_ui template handler creates the necessary user interface.
    • New feature: User information can now be verified by using the new manage_user_info template handler inside any document. All sites that use self-registration or otherwise add users in bulk are encouraged to add it to a visible start page.
    • New feature: Any user config value can now be verified (or initially entered) via the new manage_user_config template handler. Only the date format has been implemented for now, but if you use it, you'll get a nice JavaScript-based date picker. All other formats will just get a basic text input box.
    • Bugfix: Missing icons are back in the object and container permissions editor.
    • Bugfix: Sites with PIN codes associated with them can now be deleted.
    • Bugfix: A workaround for rendering issues in KFN for Internet Explorer 9 users have been implemented.
    • Bugfix: Setting your initial avatar picture no longer gives error.

  • New video player, video thumbnails, quiz editor bug fixes and more

    Posted by: Fagbokforlaget admin 29. May 2018 15:46

    The update applied today (c2e12b89) brings with it the following changes.

    New features

    • Album folder view now supports video thumbnails.
    • Removed OSFLV and BitGravity FLV/MP4 video playback solutions. We now use FlowPlayer 3.2.7 for both features. This fixes the annoying loader animation at the center of videos.
    • The transcode video feature has been moved to the top menu "Edit", and a new option to remove a transcoded video is available.
    • Video transcoding now supports original resolution. Also fixed aspect ratio bug with 4:3 videos.
    • Page title can be forced to always use site title.
    • Arabic (Morocco) was added as a content and translation language.
    • Added robots.txt so that search engines won't index uninteresting content.

    Bugfixes

    • Updated base URL to Lexin because UDIR modified their service location.
    • The speech synthesis feature is now (again) available to anonymous users.
    • Fix problem with malformed HTML entities inside quiz markup when using TinyMCE/WYSIWYG editor.
    • Fixed various JavaScript regressions by upgrading to jQuery 1.7.0.
    • Upgraded SoundManager MP3 playback library to v297a-20111030, which fixes a playback issue on Internet Explorer 9.
    • Fixed character set encoding issue when unpacking zip file when archive had non-UTF8 filenames.
    • User lists now sort according to language definition.
    • Self-registration group now shows when editing a site not the same as the site being modified.

    Enhancements

    • Substantial code cleanup in quiz editor. Should make the code more robust.
    • Upgraded to version 5.0.7 of JUpload (our multiple file uploader). This new version uses UTF-8, so filenames should now be preserved correctly, even for non-Latin character sets.
    • Request handlers no longer hit the database to figure out if they should be available to anonymous users.
