Ares 5.0.2 Client Release Available 1/25

Hello Ares Community,

Monday (1/25/2021), Atlas Systems will be releasing Ares version 5.0.2 for those currently on Ares 5.0.x. This point release is a client update only and does not require a server update. This means most staff should be able to update the client on a per-user basis without the need for administrator privileges. This update may look a little different since this release will be the first one utilizing the Automatic Updater.

The Ares 5.0.2 fixes several bugs, including:

  • Instructor tags not properly showing in the Client grids.
  • Courses can't be cloned without designated instructors.
  • Creating items would assume the processing location was the same as the pickup location.
  • Removing a user as an instructor's full proxy would remove all of that user's enrollments.

For more information, scroll to the bottom of the 5.0 Release Notes: If you experience any issues or have any questions, please contact support at or 1-800-567-7401 x1.

Please share this notice internally as needed.
