The 2014 was a good year in Moodle plugins world. Let me pick some milestones that were reached in the last year.
Total of 239 new plugins were approved and added to the Plugins directory. Big thanks to all the developers for continuous maintenance of their plugins. Please feel encouraged to join the community and contribute too! See the plugins documentation and register your new plugin or help by taking on any of these plugins seeking new maintainer.
The fellowship of Moodle plugin peer-reviewers was formed. These "Plugin guardians" help a lot with providing initial feedback on submitted plugins during the approval process. Many thanks to Tomasz Muras, Rex Lorenzo, Carl LeBlond and Luke Carrier for the peer-reviews and feedback provided last year. Really appreciated. Please do not hesitate to do a good thing in the next year - offer your time and join these merry men group!
Together with other community portals maintained by Moodle HQ, the Plugins directory site got a new look. I am aware of several areas in the UI and the functionality that I hope will be yet fixed and improved in the next year. All suggestions and bug reports welcome (as usually).
Have a good year everyone. I am looking forward to all your plugins, bug reports, useful forum posts, translation contributions and other forms of participation on this Moodle open source project.
