Project Suggestions for Moodle Hack/Doc Fest: Winter 2013

Moodle Hack/Doc Fest at Reed College is coming up soon (Jan 7-10, 2013) and we’re looking for suggestions for bug fixes, documentation and new features for Moodle that the community would like us to address. In order to streamline issue gathering, we’re using a Google Doc to accept and review submissions. These will then be imported into Redmine for tracking.

You can also add commments to this post, but please submit them using the form as well so we have a definitive place for tracking things.

Moodle 2.2.4+Liberal Arts Edition 2.2.2 released

The final release is out for Moodle 2.2.4+Liberal Arts Edition 2.2.2. The following bug fix (with its CLAMP tracking number) was included in v2.2.2:

  • CLAMP-449: version conflict causes unmigrated forum attachments

If you were running an LAE 1.9 release and have upgraded to an LAE 2.2 release your forum module is potentially in a broken state. Please see http://cme.clamp-it.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=947 for instructions on how to resolve this issue.

You can download the code from the project page:

Moodle 1.9.9+LAE v1.1.4 available for download

Moodle 1.9.9+LAE v1.1.4 is available for download. This is a security release that backports fixes from Moodle 1.9.10 to Moodle 1.9.9. It supersedes the Moodle 1.9.9+LAEv1.1.1 and LAE v1.1.2 releases. It also incorporates a number of bug fixes and new features developed at Hack/Doc Fest VII at Furman University, and fixes a bug with TinyMCE 3.x that was introduced in LAE 1.1.2.

Moodle 1.9.9+LAE v1.1.3 Pending [update]

CLAMP will soon be releasing Moodle 1.9.9+LAE v1.1.3, which fixes an issue with TinyMCE not displaying in text fields. We hope to have this release out by the 1/28/2011.

The fix for this problem is straight forward and involves updating a few lines of /lib/editor/tinymce.js.php; details can be found in this Redmine Development thread.

Update: We’ve released Moodle 1.9.9+LAE v1.1.4, which fixes this problem. We skipped over 1.1.3 for strictly logistical reasons.
