When editing any rich-text field, you will now find an anchor button just above the text-link and unlink buttons (the chain and broken chain, respectively), allowing you to insert an HTML anchor directly into your content. Once processed (by clicking on the rich-text field's green checkmark), the anchor will be available as an internal linking destination: simply highlight some text where you would like the new link to exist, click on the text-link button, select the anchor from the text-link's Anchors drop-down list, and Insert the new internal link, easy as that!
Also new to eXe v1.03 is the ability to create content about HTML itself! You won't see any fancy new buttons for this, but you will find that any example HTML code snippets that you type into the rich-text field will remain within your content:
The eXe team would like to thank CORE Education for their continued support, and you, the eXe community, for your continued participation.

eXe team members Dr. Sandy Britain and Jim Tittsler (lead eXe developer) recently attended the IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS GLC) quarterly meeting, the Summit on Innovation in Learning Technology conference, held in Queenstown. In addition to all of the other conference events (Dr. Britain presented “Beyond Static Content: The Common Cartridge”), they both had the excitement of demonstrating eXe to a panel of IMS GLC judges and being grilled in a Q&A session for all Learning Impact entrants.
On November 8th, IMS GLC named eXe as the 2nd Runner Up, one of this year's New Zealand Regional Learning Impact Awards finalists! Organizations from New Zealand, the Asia-Pacific Region, including India (but excluding Australia, which had its own regional competition) participated in the New Zealand Regional Learning Impact competition. As one of the top three Learning Impact projects in the New Zealand region this year, eXe is automatically entered into the global IMS GLC Learning Impact competition, to be held in Austin, Texas next May, 2008.
The Learning Impact Awards are designed to recognize the most impactful use of technology worldwide in support of learning. This unique program evaluates established, new, and research efforts in context at an implementing learning institution.The eXe team is very proud of this recognition, and is equally proud to be a part of the CORE Education family. This collaboration will bring about many new and exciting possibilities to continue advancing eLearning approaches that are future-focused and support effective pedagogical practice.
The Learning Impact program is facilitated by the IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS) for the purpose of recognizing outstanding applications of technology that address the most significant challenges facing the global education and training industries.
The Learning Impact awards are very exclusive. They signify those products, services and implementations that have the greatest impact or potential impact on global learning industry challenges and the greatest potential return on investment.

Thanks to our funders and sponsors, The Tertiary Education Commission, Tairawhiti Polytechnic, Auckland University of Technology and The University of Auckland.
Thanks to Sandy for your leadership over the past year, we've probably left you a little grayer and wearier but as an adventure junkie we hope the ride has been worthwhile. Finally, Wayne, who believed that there was a real need for this software and that we could do it.
There are probably many people who have contributed to this release that I haven't mentioned by name here and I do apologise but please know we are very grateful for your contributions.
