- AICC compliance, improved SCORM compatibility.
Both AICC and SCORM standards provide course content compliance with web-based learning requirements, facilitating proper communication between course content and the LMS. JoomlaLMS is now both AICC and SCORM compliant which makes your courses accessible, interoperable and reusable.
- Joomla! 3.2 compatibility fixes.
JoomlaLMS is now compatible with the latest Joomla! version. It means that now you have access to the latest Joomla! CMS features, improved security and more. Please note that Joomla! 3.2 version (as well as JoomlaLMS 1.3.2) requires PHP 5.3 for running. Use our installation helper (provided together with JoomlaLMS) to check your server compatibility.
- PHP 5.5 compatibility.
JoomlaLMS is built for PHP and MySQL based Joomla! CMS. A new JoomlaLMS version supports PHP 5.5 which is more efficient than older versions: users get faster server response while you need less hosting resources to run the system. Also, in order to speed up our development processes we will stop maintaining compatibility with old versions of PHP/Joomla!, please check out JoomlaLMS requirements and Joomla compatibility on our blog.
