Release Notes: There are some major changes to the underlying structure of the system. All functionality is now available in modules. The primary purpose for this change is to allow users to more easily create added features, or to create third party addon modules that link other applications into ATutor. New modules include a FAQ utility, a Google search feature, and an RSS feeds module. The EWiki, ATalker, SCORM Packages, and ACollab modules have also been updated, so it is now possible to add them to ATutor with just a couple mouse clicks.
