Good news! Moodle 3.4 just reached the beta maturity level. The core APIs can be seen as stable now, no new features will be added and only bugs will be fixed on the branch. The 3.4 release is scheduled to happen on Monday 13 November.
Same as before, Moodle plugins have now the opportunity to get a special award in the Plugins directory - Moodle 3.4 Early bird. This award will be given to plugins having a tested working 3.4 compatible version available on the release day.
This special medal was first awarded with Moodle 3.0 release and we are seeing increasing interest in it since then.
Please note it is not enough to simply you current versions as 3.4 compatible. Plugin maintainers are supposed to:
- Test your plugins intensively against Moodle 3.4 beta (Behat and PHPUnit tests help a lot).
- Fix all eventually raised warnings, notices, regressions and problems.
- Release a new compatible version in the plugins directory, or mark the existing one as compatible.
We reserve the right to not grant (or even revoke) the award from a plugin if there is a suspicion that it was not tested well. There will be no exceptions for late submissions.
Once again, thanks to all the plugins maintainers for keeping their plugins up-to-date with latest Moodle versions!
