WeBWorK version 1.6 upgrade
We have made a number of minor upgrades to WeBWorK version 1.6
The current version is: Version 1.6.03 1/20/01
and this is the version in the tar files as of 6pm on 1/20/00.
You can tell what version you have by looking at the first few lines of Global.pm or readme.first.
If you version 1.6.01 or 1.6.02, you can safely use that version.
The major chnages in version 1.6.03 are
1. The tth binary file used for "formatted-text" output must now be downloaded directly from http://hutchinson.belmont.ma.us/tth/
2. The classlist routines are now more robust in that they check for
illegal chacters (, = &) in all entries. For example, do not use
these characters in a student's name in version 1.6.02
3. There have been a number of other minor enhancements and bug
fixes. The bug fixes fix very obscure bugs so it is very unlikely these bugs in versions 1.6.01 or 1.6.02 will hurt anyone.
