I'm really happy to announce that the new Moodle Plugins is now live! (at last)
It doesn't have much data in it yet, so it's not quite ready to replace the old Modules and Plugins .
We would now like you (Moodle developers!) to start adding your own plugins to the new database. You'll need to register a new entry for the plugin itself, and then create a "version" within that plugin every time you make a release. At first you'll have to wait for everything to be approved before it goes live, but trusted developers will get more privs later.
Once we have a critical mass of data we'll start directing everyone there to the new one and will gently retire the old one (but keep it visible for reference purposes, since I suspect a lot of old stuff in there will never (and should never) be migrated to the new one).
Eventually the new database will also be the source of data for a new "Check for updates" feature within Moodle, that's why we are being very strict about the naming and formatting in this one.
It will also be the location for official reviews of plugins for security, accessibility etc
Thanks to Sam, Marina, Anthony, Michael and everyone else who has helped getting the database where it is so far. We'll keep continuing to tweak and improve it while it gathers data and feedback.
