While I have attempted to update other posts with this information where issues have been reported, I am eager to ensure this update gets out and so am therefore making a new post.
Last year a fantastic course format called "Grid Format" was written by Paul Krix and released online. While working, the code was full of bugs and issues and Paul was unable to support it. So towards the end of last year I was made maintainer.
Those who have installed previous itterations will know just how buggy the format was. It was called a "beta" release for very good reason. And sadly I did not have time other than to make some quick small patches.
The good news is that over the Christmas break myself and the Pukunui team had a good chance to give the code a good overhaul and bring it up to scratch. And due to this I am happy to announce that the code is now in Release Candidate phase.
What does this mean. Well the following is now true:
- The code now meets Moodle coding standards
- With developer debugging enabled it generates NO errors
- It now caches properly and thus performance has been slightly increased
- Depreciated calls have all been updated
- All features work as they should.
- Russian translation added
So, if you have installed Grid on your 2.x site I would encourage you to download the latest version from the Modules and Plugins database or directly from Github ( https://github.com/PukunuiAustralia/moodle-courseformat_grid ) ASAP and upgrade your site.
Remember, if you do have issues to report, please post an issue in the tracker and/or a forum post. I would ask you respond to this thread with new issues if you can to better allow me to track them if you can't use the tracker.
Lastly, I would like to encourage those who can to assist with translations. I have received emails regarding German, French, Spanish and Chinese translations being requested. As I speak none of these languages help from the community would be appreciated.
Thankyou again for your patience. I'm looking forward to continually working and improving this format moving forward.
