Moodle 1.9.12+LAE1.2.1 released

Moodle 1.9.12+LAE1.2.1 released is available for download. This is a maintenance and security release that incorporates Moodle 1.9.12. It supersedes the Moodle 1.9.11+LAE1.2 releases.

In addition to Moodle 1.9.12, it includes two new backup options: 1) if ZipArchive is installed on the server, Backup will use that instead of the regular zip routines 2) you can now specify whether to skip courses of a certain size when creating backups. This replaces a hardcoded value of 512 MB from the previous version of the LAE.

CLAMP’s Moodle 2.0 Status Report, May 2011

After careful assessment, CLAMP has concluded that Moodle 2.0.1 is not production ready. This assessment is based on extensive testing  conducted at Moodle Hack/Doc Fest VII at Furman University in January 2011 as well as a re-evaluation of Moodle 2.0.x progress in April 2011. CLAMP recommends using Moodle 1.9.x during the 2011-2012 academic year.

Our full report outlines notable improvements to Moodle 2.0, as well as progress since January 2011,  known blockers, possible blockers and other potential issues that affect its production readiness. Download the full report [PDF]

CLAMP will be supporting Moodle 2.0 at the upcoming Moodle Hack/Doc Fest at Hampshire College in June 2011. We plan to:

  • identify and begin writing essential Moodle 2.0 documentation at Hack/Doc
  • create a timeline for converting any remaining plugins or blocks
  • update this report on the status of blockers and potential blockers
  • establish a group of CLAMP schools interested in piloting Moodle 2.0 in 2011-12
