UDOIT v2.0.4

Blog Post created by tr_jbates on Apr 22, 2016

Since we have a presence on the Canvas Community now, I figured this would be a good place to do writeups on all of our version releases of UDOIT.  This particular one is very minor, but I have to start somewhere!

 

  • User authentication is now compliant with the changes that were made recently in Canvas.  Instead of asking Instructure to generate a Developer Key for you to install UDOIT, your LMS Administrators can do that for you.  This particular subject can get very technical, so let me know if you want more details.
  • The latest UFIXIT tool, Color Picker, gives you some pre-made color options in addition to the spectrum interface.  It also will not let you submit the UFIXIT form if your new color is also inaccessible.

 

We also discovered some issues while preparing for this release.  They will be fixed in future releases:

  • UFIXIT for files no longer works.  This is due to Instructure removing the API we were using to handle file uploading.  We need to switch to the new API they created.
  • UFIXIT has trouble with anything that contains Magic Quotes, i.e., the quotation marks generated by Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Outlook, etc.
  • UFIXIT has trouble with table headings and scopes.  We're still trying to nail this one down, since it doesn't have issues in all cases.

 

That's it for this time!  Please let me know if you discover any issues with this release, or if you have any questions.
