CLAMP is pleased to endorse Moodle 2.8.x and Moodle 2.9.x for use during the 2015-16 academic year. A significant gradebook issue that had impacted both Moodle versions, and promoted CLAMP to issue a gradebook advisory, has been resolved.
In late May CLAMP became aware of several critical bugs in the Moodle gradebook which were introduced in 2.8. After assessing, CLAMP issued an advisory recommending against upgrading to Moodle 2.8 or 2.9 until those bugs were mitigated. Since then Moodle core and members of the Moodle community have made considerable progress working on these issues, and CLAMP believes it is now safe to upgrade to 2.8 and 2.9.
