Dear community,

Chamilo LMS 1.9.8 has been released (internally it is already, but the download links point to the latest version anyway).

Chamilo LMS 1.9.8 comes with 22 new features, 31 improvements and 396 bugfixes, making it the version with the most bugs fixes in the history of Chamilo LMS, although very few were actually critical bugs, which goes to say we have improved the software in many ways.

We recommend you upgrade to this version as soon as possible.

Upgrading from 1.9.0, 1.9.2, 1.9.4 or 1.9.6 to 1.9.8 is dead easy, so don't wait too long before you upgrade.
