Release notes

Version 2.0 │ December 20, 2018

Summary

What was the focus for this release?

MyInfo was built by Phoenix College in PHP Laravel. This is not a platform that District ITS supports. The driver for MyInfo 2.0 was to move MyInfo to PHP Drupal. This provided an opportunity for some easy enhancements. In preparation for future increases in traffic, it was also an opportunity to improve the data source and infrastructure.
