Weekly Web Updates – December 12, 2016


Fixes and Tweaks

  • CAS now requires TLS 1.2 when connecting to its service in order to provide additional session security. The Online Directory was upgraded to .NET 4.5 to accomodate this change.
  • We’ve added a Google Tag Manager plugin for Omeka and one for MediaWiki. Custom support for this was also added to MiddMedia.
  • Scholarships are now included in the post types shown on the MiddSTART homepage and several coding errors were resolved that were preventing comments from working as intended.
  • Fixed a login issue with MediaWiki that prevented some users from being able to edit.
  • Panopto is now included in the video provider options for the Davis Projects for Peace site.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
  • A small redesign of the Middlebury News Room to bring it more inline with the newsletter.
  • Building out the configuration of our CAS and Course Catalog servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, and GO services.
  • Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.
  • Providing Course Hub access for Schools Abroad courses.
