Hi All,

In anticipation for the impending release of Moodle 3.5, code freeze commences on Monday 9th of April.

After this date no new code is accepted into integration until after the release.  This allows us to focus on QA testing and fixing issues found with the existing code.

Please also see the description of our development cycle.

We are currently finishing the work on some of the bigger projects for 3.5.  And of course, many thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.

Hi All,

Today is the start of code freeze for Moodle 3.5. The integration team will only accept bug fixes into core from now onwards until the release of Moodle 3.5.

For the next week or two integrators will focus on working through the backlog of issues submitted for integration and aim to start 3.5 QA testing after this is completed. 

If you are a plugin author, please have a look at the Privacy API that we have released as part of assisting Moodle sites and plugin developers to become GDPR compliant.  This API will allow Moodle to request and or delete personal data stored by your plugin to comply with user access requests and user's right to erasure - which are requirements under GDPR to empower individuals with control over their personal data.  

Please also note that there will be a number of changes in the code base over the next couple of weeks so it's also recommended to check your plugin for 3.5 compatibility after this.
