As far as I know nothing changed with relation to logging in.
What exactly could you do in the past and doesn't work any more in version 2.6.0?

I have the same problem. I would like to use an autologin from another system, but I do not know how? Can someone give me a short example how I can autologin? Thanks.

Hi Horst,

It's explained in the installation_guide.html - section 5f and it works as follows:
If your "other" system is using PHP, then it should start a session (session_start();) and after the user has logged in, store the user's username or email address in the PHP variable $_SESSION['lcUser']. If somewhere thereafter your iframe with LuxCal follows, Luxcal will pick up the username/email address and automatically log in the user.
