Dear ILIAS developers,
We finally have completed coding ILIAS 6 and published a first beta release yesterday. This allows us to start testing of ILIAS 6 today. Thanks to all of you who contributed to this great piece of software. Especially due to the Page Layout Revision, developing ILIAS 6 was quite a challenge. But we made it! That’s great.
Together with 6.0 beta1 we also created a „release_6" branch for ILIAS 6: https://github.com/ILIAS-eLearning/ILIAS/commits/release_6. As you know from past versions, this branch is only open for bug fixes. New features for ILIAS 7 have to be committed to trunk (which is now open for new features). But don’t forget to commit your ILIAS 6 bug fixes to trunk, too.
In case not all of your ILIAS 6 feature wiki pages have a completed documentation section (chap. 8) yet, please add the missing information and screenshots within the next days. It is a MUST to do this until Coding Completed, so please take this requirement seriously.
And last but not least: please check if your ILIAS 6 features appear on the release 6 page: https://docu.ilias.de/goto_docu_wiki_wpage_5457_1357.html. If not, you probably haven’t set the metadata correctly. The release 6 page lists only features with status „published in trunk“. All other statuses are ignored.
Thanks again for your contribution and support!
