Moodle 3.2beta is available now in the main git repository. We have roughly 3 weeks to the next major version release. It is the best time now to update your plugins and make sure they will work well with the next Moodle version.
The award "Early bird 3.2" will be granted to plugins that have Moodle 3.2 compatible version submitted by the actual 3.2 release date. Please do not underestimate the actual testing and fixing all new bugs, warnings and notices. We reserve the right to not grant (or even revoke) the award from a plugin if there is a suspicion that it has not been tested well. There will be no exceptions for late submissions.
As usually, plugins authors have principally two ways how to achieve this:
- If the testing reveals that an existing version just works as-is with the new Moodle version (this is not unusual especially with simple plugins and no changes in the underlying APIs), the maintainer can simply mark the current version as supporting Moodle 3.2.
- If changes are required, or the maintainer just prefers to do so, a new plugin version can be released by uploading the new ZIP package to the Plugins directory and marking Moodle 3.2 (and eventually others, too) as supported version.
As always, thanks and respect to you all who continually maintain your plugins and keep them up-to-date with new Moodle versions.
