We are very excited to announce the release of the onCourse 5.0. This is the culmination of over a year of planning and development. Read all about the details of the release here:


The major changes include an improved Quick Enrol user interface, vouchers, products and over 1000 smaller fixes and improvements. Performance over slow internet connections has also been a major focus.

A major security flaw was discovered a few days in a key piece of security software called openssl used by more than 60% of websites in the world. This security flaw has caused sysadmins to scramble to apply fixes as quickly as possible.

All onCourse systems were patched for this flaw within 12 hours of the bug becoming public knowledge. We know that major banks in Australia as well as companies like Google and Facebook scrambled also to patch their systems.

A minor release just before Christmas for everyone getting AVETMISS reporting done for the year. If you aren't an RTO needing to report AVTEMISS 6.1 there isn't much here for you to bother with.


There was also an invisible 4.1.2 release that we didn't make public since it was only released internally to resolve an issue with our cloud hosting and the latest Java 7.0_45 update. It wasn't something that users generally needed to install.
