Changes in ATutor 2.1.1

MultiSite Upgrade: In addition to the upgrades to ATutor, the ATutor Multisite module has been style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal' updated to include multisite upgrade features. Administrators can install the updated module after upgrading ATutor, and with a click of a button, have all subsites upgraded.

Expanded Metadata: For courses that are public and should be indexed by external search engines, keyword, description, and title metadata has been improved to produce more effective search results.

Simple Desktop Update: The desktop theme that looks like a tablet application has been adjusted to refine the layout and appearance of the theme. Additional accessibility adjustments have also been made.

PHP 5.4 Support: The ATutor codebase has been updated to support the changes introduced in PHP 5.4.

Math Equation Editor: The WIRIS math equation editor has been added to the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor adding a full range of mathematical notation authoring from anywhere in ATutor that uses the editor.

Remedial Content: Test authors can now include remedial content with the feedback presented after failing test questions.

Live Link AContent: Instructors can link content from the AContent repository into the content of their courses, leaving the content in the repository rather than importing the associated files. This allows authors to maintain a single copy of content, with changes automatically updating across all courses using it.

Language Caching Improved: The caching of language has been improved to minimize the need to access language from the database, improving page load times by about a factor of 10. This greatly improves database efficiency for very large installations with many students accessing ATutor at the same time. Administrators can also set the lifetime of the cache, controlling how often it gets refreshed.

New DB Access Function: The new queryDB() function has been added. Developers should now use this function rather than the "mysql" functions to query the ATutor database. See the ATutor Developer Documentation for details. The old mysql functions will be phased out over the next release or two.

Many other changes are listed in the ChangeLog

Course Seats: Administrators can install this module to manage the number of seats available to individual courses, controlling how many students can enroll in each course. When integrated with the Payments module, seats can be purchased by instructors on a course-by-course basis.

First, excuse me for my english.
I want to consult.
When I want to upload a file to the file store will not let me. He says: "The following errors occurred:
You did not select any file to upload. "
And when I wanted to upload a ZIP file (for a complete course, which was taken from another platform) tells me that the file is not ZIP.
My problem is, or is malfunctioning ATutor?

I await your response.

Thank you very much.

Federico

怎样鉴别B货手表
<a href="http://360buywatch.com/ ">精仿表城</a>教您如何区别市场上低质量的仿表,避免您花了高价钱无法得到您意想中的宝贝</br>
1.观察表壳后盖。凡原装手表,尤其是男表,都要在表壳后盖上印许多英文字母,注明手表牌名,生产国别,全钢或半钢防水、防磁、防震或防震器名称(参见后面常见手表外观英文字母标记),并刻印有手表牌号专用的商标图案。除此以外,还刻有一些数字,用来标明手表的机芯号和壳号。B货手表后盖上刻有的图案及字母大多十分粗大模糊,不明壳号及机芯号。原装手表后盖上一般均贴有一胶膜,而梅花表在表后盖上加贴一绿色梅花状标签。瑞士产的镀金壳手表,在表壳开档位置(和安装表带的弹簧杆相对处)刻有字母,如PLAQUEGI0,表示表壳是10微米镀金。B货表则没有这种标记,许多低质量的手表采用氮化钛之类的工艺冒充镀金表壳。颜色看起来就不那么舒服的那种,你懂的~~~</br>

<strong><a href="http://360buywatch.com/watch-brands/omega.html">欧米茄</a></strong></br> 2.表盘。凡日本产的手表,在表盘6点盘字下端都印有一行很小的数字,表示机芯和盘号;低质量表则没有。瑞士产的一些名牌手表在表盘上都有一些特殊标记。市场上低质量的手表表盘上没有这样的字母。</br>
有些便宜的、低质量的手表在表盘上虽印有sWISSMOVT字母表示瑞士机芯,以SHOCKPROOF这样的字母来标明是防震表,但这类手表通常表盘上的缺陷和疵点较多,如盘字镶得不正,分线印迹模糊,盘字或商标字母、图案在表盘上镶得不严密,盘面上有较多的划痕、变色及夜明点脱落等,而且夜明点都加在盘字的里侧,夜明点较大和显得不均匀,也有表盘夜明点和指针上夜明点颜色不一致的</br>。
有些带日、周历的B货手表有这样的特征:从日历窗口看上去,日历字盘的外侧向后倾斜,或日历字盘是塑料质的。周历字盘则用中文标明星期(日本表除外)或星期字右侧用英文,左侧用数字。</br>
3.观察表把头。冒牌手表的商标或字母印记粗大模糊或印有100%W~P字样,以及全钢手表使用半钢把头。

Regarding the "New DB Access Function", how would one reasonably go about updating a heavily modified version of ATutor to incorporate that? Is there a better way than going file by file and updating each function?

Thanks.
