Hi All,

We start the code freeze for Moodle 3.6 today. The integration team will only accept bug fixes into core from now onwards until the release of Moodle 3.6.

The integrators will focus on working through the final changes landing for the new features, the backlog of issues submitted for integration, and we will start QA testing shortly. 

For plugin developers, please take note of some of the changes in the Privacy API for Moodle 3.6.  You can read the background to these changes in the forum post.  To summarise; we have added a new interface core_userlist_provider to add the ability to define role-specific retention rules. For example to be able to assign different retention periods to student vs teacher data.

To facilitate this, we need to know which users are present in the context, and then be able to delete content for a subset of the users

In general it's also recommended that you check your plugin for overall Moodle 3.6 compatibility as we get closer to the release as the final issues get integrated during this time.
