2.10 Release Notes

Released: October 15th, 2016

Aviso 2.10 focuses on three core changes; accessibility, academic planning, and responsive design. 

Accessibility

As an organization we have a fundamental belief that the Aviso platform should offer the best experience possible for all users, including those with disabilities.  As a result, we are working diligently toward Aviso being fully accessible.  While 2.10 does not make all of Aviso fully 508 compliant, Aviso is much more usable for those users with disabilities.  Upcoming releases will continue to focus on this capability.  

Responsive UI

As more users utilize Aviso from mobile devices, it is important for users to have the best experience possible on these devices.  As a result, the Aviso application is being moved to a responsive web design.  Responsive web applications will automatically adjust their size based upon the device being used, limiting the pinching and zooming that comes from utilizing a web application that is not built in a responsive manner.  With 2.10, Aviso's administrative screens have made this transition to responsive design.  In upcoming versions, the rest of Aviso will transition as well. 

Achievements

Multiple instances of achievements are now able to be created through the administrative screens.  Administrators can create multiple Current Grade achievements or Midterm Grade achievements with varying configuration.
