While still working on the 1.1.0 build 09 release, we've started making plans for the new LOVD v.2.0. LOVD will be completely rewritten and lots of new features are planned. Amongst others, the LOVD sequence variant table structure will be completely dynamic. The expected 1.1.0-09 release has been postponed until later this month.

A manager is now able to set a sender emailaddress for your LOVD installation, which should prevent LOVD emails from being blocked. Also, a feature has been added to check for new updates of LOVD and provides the possibility to download the update directly. This new feature is only available for managers.
The next build of LOVD is expected before October and will be targeted at improving the overall documentation. Expect a full manual and an extended quick reference guide.
