This message is to provide notice to developers about the impending code-freeze starting on Monday 9th October.
The code freeze is a point after which no new code (only fixes to existing code) is accepted in integration until beyond the release. This stabilisation allows for QA testing and means developers are able to respond rapidly to bugs found.
For more information see... http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Process#Events_during_cycle
Thanks to all the contributors to Moodle 3.4. We are waiting until all new features land in product and will prepare the release notes page from this list of issues.
