In the past, ANGEL Support has posted notes here after an update was applied. Due to changing roles and time constraints that hasn't happened a while.
We've received feedback from the ANGEL community that updates sometimes bring unexpected changes in functionality and can be disruptive. The ANGEL team takes this feedback seriously. We're going to try something new to help address this concern and post a note here about upcoming updates before they happen. We can't guarantee that this will happen for every update; sometimes a change needs to be pushed to ANGEL urgently to correct an issue, or we may not have enough lead time on an update to get together a notice, or staff may not be available to post something.
ANGEL has recently been upgraded to version 7.3. Users can learn about the features of ANGEL 7.3 in several ways. Read more...

On July 30, 2009, Information Technology Services performed an update on ANGEL to improve the usability of the inline HTML editor. In most areas where the HTML editor is available, it will now load automatically without the need to first click the "HTML Editor" link. This change should correct issues that some users have experienced with line breaks and formatting not being retained.
Please note that the HTML editor will not load automatically in a few text areas, including the message field in drop boxes, some text fields encountered when creating or editing a question in a quiz or survey, and the answer field in essay questions when taking a quiz. To use the editor in these areas, you will still need to select the "HTML Editor" link beneath the text box. If you do not see the HTML editor when composing ANGEL mail messages, please enter your inbox, click preferences, select the HTML format for your mail messages, and save.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change, please contact ANGEL Support.
Post you're classes and talk about them, maybe we have the same ones!
Two frustrating things about ANGEL's new mail setup:
1.) Adding address to the "To:" I use computers with fairly small screen (1024x768 and 1024x600), so the flash pop-up address adding window often has the bottom of that window (with the all important "Okay" button) hidden from view. Clicking on it gives me the ability to move it, but not resize it to my screen area. Since I can't drag it higher than the banner, this doesn't help.
2.) When I look at the emails I sent, they are *not* word wrapped. I have to horizontally scroll quite a way to read a long paragraph. Is this a formatting error on my part?
On July 20, two ANGEL features are being updated: 1) the way in which discussion forums are displayed in the Discussion Forums component on the course Communicate tab, and 2) what a course editor sees on the Activity Detail report for a lesson content item if tracking is disabled.
