SchoolTool 2.1 Lands in the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Universe.

Written for SchoolTool Project by Tom Hoffman on 2012-04-26

Last November, the SchoolTool development team released SchoolTool 2.0, a complete re-thinking of our student information system, emphasizing clarity and efficiency. Schools and service providers around the world quickly embraced these improvements.

Today, SchoolTool 2.1 brings these changes and further refinements to users of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) with one-step installation through the Ubuntu Software Center.

SchoolTool is a 100% free and open source web based solution for student enrollment, demographics, grading, attendance, calendaring and more.

SchoolTool 2.1 is primarily a stability and bugfix release, with the following new features:

* ID photos for people.
* Printable photo ID templates.
* Improved person search.
* Standard sets of gradebook activites for courses.
* Updated translations.

SchoolTool 2.1 packages for selected earlier versions of Ubuntu will be released to SchoolTool's Launchpad package archives in coming weeks.
