This release fixes a number of issues, both new and old.  A huge thanks to escull‌ for figuring out so many of these.  If you've been having any trouble with tables, please test out this version and let me know if it your issues are resolved.

Bugs Fixed

  • If you've been having trouble with detecting and fixing table headers, we may have fixed the issue:
    • UFIXIT for tables fixed for PHP 7.3. So, that means UDOIT is now compatible with PHP 7.3!
    • UFIXIT for tables now works when selecting "first column" or "both".
    • One institution reported that UFIXIT added an empty row to a table when a space is present in the HTML. This was fixed.
  • The status page accurately reports status of the Developer Key.
  • Decreased memory usage when generating "Most Common Errors" report in the admin panel.

Enhancements

  • A list of all the tests UDOIT looks for was added to the README
