Backward Compatibility breaks in this release

HTML Overrides will need review for Attempts View

The Attempts view that you see when you click on the X/Y attempts on the table of contents screen introduces a column that shows time spent per attempt. If you have overridden this view, you will need to refactor it to accommodate this change. Views affected are as below.


HTML Overrides will need review for jLike Assign View

Assign/Enroll views in frontend and backend (from jLike) introduces a new drop down to let the manager choose which users to show. You will need to refactor your overrides on this view to support this. Views affected are as below.

Shika Integration will break with JTicketing 2.0
