No, eledge and eledge development is not dead. =)
Currently underway is a rewrite of the underlying architecture, converting from the current "model-1" style architecture to a layered architecture. The new setup will use cayenne for object-relational mapping and model-management, making it much easier to use databases other than mysql. It will also make use of tapestry for the presentation layer.
The initial rewrite will still only support 1-course/code base, but it is expected that full support for multiple courses will be added shortly thereafter.
The Eledge team is pleased to welcome Andrew Feren as a new developer to the project. Andrew will be working on the upcoming architectural changes and the gradebook.
The eledge team would like to welcome Fred Weber as the newest developer. Fred will be working primarily on the assessment portion of eledge.
Thanks to Andrew Feren for pointing out a problem with the eledge-3.1.0.zip file. (Incorrect file format). An corrected version of the file has been uploaded to sourceforge as of today.
Eledge Open Learning Management System has released version 3.1.0. Within this version, the i18n related code, released in version 3.0.0, has been optimized. Additionally, a new TA system has been added which allows customized permission sets to be applied to TA's, and also allows students and/or sections to be assigned to TA's, with the option of limiting actions such as grade viewing and assigning to only assigned students. Also released was an updated version of the language packs, as well as an updated eledge-utils package. (Note: if you have problems with the sourceforge mirrors, you can download the eledge files from http://scazdl.org/~robertz/eledge/\)
