New Moodle LAE Releases for 2.6.7, 2.7.4, 2.8.2

There are three new CLAMP releases. This is the initial release on the 2.8 branch. The 2.7 and 2.6 releases include an updated version of the Roster report; the 2.7 release includes an updated version of the Edit Dates report.

The 2.8 release includes major changes to the LAE distribution: we have removed LAE Grader, LAE User, and “old” Quickmail; we have added the News Forum local module. These changes are fully described in the 2.8 release notes below. The removal of the LAE grader reports is made possible by the significant improvements to the core grader reports in the 2.8 release, with which Bob Puffer of Luther College was heavily involved.

You can download the updates from their project pages:

The next stable releases on the 2.8, 2.7 and 2.6 branches are slated for March 16.
