Changelog

Kialo’s comprehensive release history.

Release Notes #621

  • A workaround for a Safari 12 issue, affecting Oauth sign ups and logins, has been released.

Release Notes #620

  • The concept of organizations has been introduced for Kialo Edu. Users become part of an organization if their associated email addresses match domains the organization is authorized to manage. Organizations are very useful for schools, school districts and universities that want to view and manage their students’ data themselves.
  • Users’ timelines can be viewed without logging in.
  • When using the Clone and Invite Wizard, you can choose to not send email notifications.

Release Notes #618

  • Pressing a claim link on touch devices will show a preview of the claim. Clicking on the preview will navigate to the claim.
  • Due to the latest Safari release changing the way it treats embeds, embedded Kialo discussions are currently not working properly with Safari anymore. Safari users will instead see a message to open the embedded discussion in a new tab. This will be reverted when we have found a good solution for the underlying Safari problem.
