New Moodle LAE Releases for May 2021

There are four new Moodle: Liberal Arts Edition releases. There are no new LAE features; these are maintenance releases only. You can download the updates from the CLAMP code release archive.

The next stable releases are scheduled for mid-July. Moodle HQ has released Moodle 3.11 and CLAMP will evaluate it at the Summer 2021 Hack/Doc Fest (to be held online) and prepare a beta. CLAMP evaluated Moodle 3.9 and 3.10 at the Winter 2021 Hack/Doc Fest; please see CLAMP’s daily reports for details: Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3.

These releases were developed, packaged, and tested by Charles Fulton (Lafayette College) and Andrew Zito (Lafayette College).

Emergency LAE Releases for March 2021

There are two new Moodle: Liberal Arts Edition releases. CLAMP is releasing updated 3.10 and 3.9 releases to address a significant calendar corruption bug in MDL-71156. This fix, from Moodle HQ, reverts the change that caused the issue. If you already updated to 3.10.2 or 3.9.5 then you should see the linked tracker item for remediation options. You can download the updates from the CLAMP code release archive. The next stable releases are scheduled for mid-May.

These releases were developed, packaged, and tested by Kevin Wiliarty (Hampshire College) and Andrew Zito (Lafayette College). CLAMP thanks Eric Merrill of Oakland University for his diligence in finding and reporting the calendar corruption bug.
