New School Events functions


OA Version 8.50

Updates to installation scripts to support latest versions of Debian (8.1) and Ubuntu Server 14.04.3. Use the older 8.3 release, below, if you don't have the latest Debian 8.1/Ubuntu 14.04.3.

Lots of other script updates that I didn't track since they were ongoing with current schools. There are updates to the teacher attendance entry, tracking scripts, and rptmonth4.pl (monthly attendance script with extensive teacher checking (to make sure they've done attendance)). Updates to some of the moodle support scripts and skipping of those 'courses' used for attendance only. More included perl modules during install, which increases the filesize for download.
