Hi there

Ernie, could you give us some news about the LAMS project status ? Is it still alive and kicking ?

Can you give us an ETA of the new HTML version 2.5 ? If I am right, the latest official release is still 2.4.02 and the last official patch was publishd as patch-2.4-005

In addition, I got 2 extra questions:

* Are there ways to patch current releases using the ubuntu upgrader ? The last distro was made in avril 2014 and you may have fixed many bugs in the meantime but I didn't see any official patches.

* (Already asked in a prior message). Could you please fix the translators interface ?

- cheers ! Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

There was a problem with the messages going thru my inbox so I wasn't seeing messages coming from this forum. My apologies.

The LAMS project is indeed moving ahead. These days is mainly moving by the support of LAMS International's customers which are mainly universities, other educational institutions and companies.

We haven't been able to ship a new release in the form of an installer as it takes us quite a lot of time to test this.

However, I can provide you with installation and upgrading instructions if you tell me what version you have running.

Are you using the ubuntu package? If so, I think we can focus on getting that one upgraded and you should be able to continue working on that one.

Let me know what works best for you.

Also, I'll be looking into the Google translations for the i18n site.

Description: Learning Activity Management System (LAMS) 2
LAMS is a revolutionary new tool for designing, managing
and delivering online collaborative learning activities.
It provides teachers with a highly intuitive visual
authoring environment for creating sequences of learning
activities. These activities can include a range of
individual tasks, small group work and whole class
activities based on both content and collaboration.

In the meantime I can add manual patches if needed. Last time I did that it wasn't too hard if I remember right :)

- cheers ! - Daniel

PS: Fixing the translator's interface would be really nice. It was so much easier with this "little help".
