Releasing Chamilo LMS 1.9.8 Beta 1
1.9.8 Beta 1 is ready, please translate, download and test, somewhere safe...
Dear active contributor to Chamilo LMS,
There are only 5 bugs left open scheduled to be finalized in the next few days. This doesn't prevent us in any way to release the first BETA version of Chamilo LMS 1.9.8. Please download it from Github directly (big package as it still contains development folders) and test it on a non-production environment. This is still not considered a stable version (but following versions should be).
You can download it here: https://github.com/chamilo/chamilo-lms/archive/v1.9.8-beta.1.zip
You can also test it directly from https://stable.chamilo.org, connecting as admin/admin if you want to test administration features, or creating your own user if you prefer. This portal will be erased completely when we release 1.9.8 stable.
Please report on any issue you might find while using it, here: https://support.chamilo.org/projects/chamilo-18/issues/new
If you find any permissions issue installing on cPanel, please inform us here: https://support.chamilo.org/issues/7020 as this is one of the last bugs we have left before the Release Candidate.
If you feel like your own language is not translated well enough, make sure you complete your translation here: https//translate.chamilo.org
At this time, we are still working on a few visual issues to make Chamilo LMS 1.9.8 super attractive as well as super-stable. Once we are done with these (probably in a week or so), we will release v1.9.8 RC1. After that, there will be just a few weeks wait before the stable is ready and published in all press channels we have contacts with.
The RC1 will also be a special opportunity for us to crash-test Chamilo LMS 1.9.8 on the free campus, so we'll update this one soon as well. Stay tuned.
If you want to know what this is all about (Alpha, Beta, RC, stable, etc), you can check our release cycle here: https://support.chamilo.org/projects/chamilo-18/wiki/Release_cycle
Thank you for you relentless support,
