Important: Update from V 2.8.1 (or lower) to V 2.9.0 or higher: Due to an update of the data model the previous override files for the course detail view, course table and course lists (myBookings, MyFavorites) which are written for the component up to 2.8.1, will not work properly. An update of those override files are required.
If your Joomla Global Timezone wasn't set to "UTC": The time of the events of the OSG Seminar Manager of the earlier versions than 2.9.0 are saved wrong in the data base. If you update to 2.9.0 or higher you have to check once only, all times and dates of your events.
Update from V 2.5.0 (or lower) to a higher version than 2.5.0: Due to an update of the data model the previous override files for the course detail view, which are written for the component up to 2.5.0, will not work properly. An update of those override files are required.
