What's new in SharePoint Learning Kit 1.5?
With the imminent release of SLK 1.5 I thought that I would run through its new features
This has to be the highlight of the release. SLK now natively supports SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010. The functionality is exactly the same, but there are separate installers for the two versions. I've updated it so that the core components are the same, it's only the installation scripts and a few references in aspx pages are different.
Since the beginning of the project the phrase "E-Learning Actions", which appears in the document library drop down menu, has not been able to be changed or localisable. I have now moved this out to a resource file and this can now be localised for other languages, or even just changed on a farm by farm basis. So if you wanted your instance to say "Assign Work", you can just edit the text based resource file to change it.
There's 2 new options for document library edit menu. These are shortcuts for assigning work to yourself or to the site the resource is stored in. They are called "Assign to Self" and "Assign to Site". Just like "E-Learning Actions" these can also be localized. It is completely up to you which of these 3 actions you have in any site.
SLK now includes a feature to automatically add the ALWP to the web part gallery. This has been a big miss in my opinion in the releases so far and just made it annoying to install.
This release rolls up all the fixes for all the bugs I'm aware of in the Drop Box.
