    9 Introduction
   10 
   11    The [8]WeBWorKTeam is pleased to announce the release of WeBWorK 2.1.
   12    This release includes new functionality and enhancements to the user
   13    interface, database system, and PG language:
   14 
   15      * New sql_single database layout, for more efficient access to SQL
   16        databases.
   17      * New [9]mathematical-expression parser (for use in writing PG
   18        problems).
   19      * New File Manager module provides full access to course files.
   20        (Will replace File Xfer module in a future release.)
   21      * New Problem Set Detail module allows editing of set data (dates,
   22        headers), editing of problems (source file, value, etc.), and
   23        reordering of problems.
   24      * Improvements to jsMath display mode.
   25      * Many usability and cosmetic improvements.
   26      * Many bugfixes.

   30 Availability
   31 
   32    WeBWorK 2.1 requires [10]PGLanguageRelease2pt1. Both WeBWorK and PG is
   33    available on our SourceForge project page:
   34    [11]http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=93112
   35 
   36    Installation directly from CVS is also possible. Refer to the
   37    [12]InstallationManualV2pt1 for more information.
   38 
   39 Installation
   40 
   41    Documentation on installing and configuring WeBWorK is available in
   42    the [13]InstallationManualV2pt1. If you are upgrading an existing
   43    installation, be sure to read the section [14]Upgrading an existing
   44    WeBWorK installation.
   45 
   46   Using the new 'sql_single' database layout
   47 
   48    The new sql_single database layout stores the data for all courses
   49    using the layout in a single database, reducing the number of
   50    connections that need to be made to the SQL server and eliminates the
   51    need for database to be created and deleted as courses are created and
   52    deleted. It also adds indexing to data tables, improving system speed.
   53 
   54    To learn more about the database options available in WeBWorK 2.1,
   55    including the sql_single layout, consult the [15]Database
   56    configuration section of [16]InstallationManualV2pt1 and the
   57    [17]DatabaseLayoutManual.
   58 
   59    Before creating courses using the sql_single layout (or converting
   60    existing courses), you must [18]create a single database and grant
   61    access to it.
   62 
   63    We suggest that you convert all courses using the sql database layout
   64    to use sql_single instead and add indexing to converted courses.
   65    Instructions are available in the [19]CourseAdministrationManual.
   66 
   67 Help
   68 
   69    If you need help installing or using WeBWorK 2.1, consult
   70    [20]WeBWorKDocs and [21]WeBWorKFAQs.
   71 
   72    You can also visit the [22]WeBWorK discussion group and post your
   73    question there. The developers monitor this forum.
   74 
   75 Bug Reports & Feature Requests
   76 
   77    Submit bug reports and feature requests at
   78    [23]http://bugs.webwork.rochester.edu/. We can't fix bugs and add
   79    features if you don't tell us about them!
   80 
   81 Patches
   82 
   83    While we welcome patches of any sort, by patching against the latest
   84    CVS code, you save us and yourself time. A bug in this release may be
   85    fixed in CVS, and we can more easily handle patches against the latest
   86    code. Check out the latest development version from CVS and patch
   87    against that. Consult the [24]WeBWorKCVS topic for more information.
