Good news! Moodle 4.0-beta (2022030300) was tagged in the git repository today! And it is time to grab the opportunity and accept the traditional Early bird challenge!
We know ourselves it may take a while to get your plugins ready when there are substantial changes and improvements expected. So we make an exception this time. Instead of the common three weeks, Moodle plugin developers will now have six weeks to get their plugins fixed and tested for the upcoming major update!
Plugins will be awarded with the Early bird 4.0 badge if they have a tested working 4.0 compatible version available on 18 April 2022 at 23:59:59 UTC.
Same as ever before, it is not enough to simply mark you current versions as compatible. Plugin maintainers are expected to:
- Test plugins intensively against Moodle 4.0 (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 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.
For the growing list of plugins that support the 4.0 version, please see https://moodle.org/plugins/?q=moodle-version:4.0
Thank you in advance for keeping your plugins up-to-date with latest Moodle versions!
Edited on 6 March 2022: Fixed the deadline date from 11 to 18 April to match the scheduled major release date.
