Hi everyone,

Finally, LAMS 2.3.4 is out!

There's quite a few bug fixes and improvements in several tools and core but I guess the most significant improvement is Theme Management.

Theme Management allows a sysadmin to install and manage the Themes or skins that change the look and feel of LAMS using CSS files. Once a theme is added, then the administrator can set the default theme for the system and also individual users can choose which theme they want for themselves.

We have added a high contract theme in the upgrade for people with visual impediments.

Also you can create your own Theme to better suit the colors of your school, university, etc. If you want to do this, follow the High Contrast CSS example. Hopefully in the near future we'll add a whole bunch more themes to choose from.

As always we have updated all the languages files to the latest. Many thanks to all our translators for their hard work on this.

We continue working in LAMS 2.4 which will be a big leap forward with serious improvements in usability (new author and monitor interfaces) and scalability (new application server). As we keep progressing on it, we'll keep posting updates to the community.

The upgrade is available at the Downloads page in the wiki.

Many thanks and enjoy the release!
