Moodle 1.0.3.1

Moodle 1.0.3.1
 
Even if you downloaded Moodle 1.0.3 earlier today I highly recommend you download 1.0.3.1, which contains two important fixes.

The first has existed since 1.0.2, and was stopping the teacher's "login as" feature from working. The second is a security problem that has existed since 1.0.1 (thanks to Giovanni Tummarello for noticing this one!).

Cheers,
Martin

Hi Martin,

is possible directly upgrade from 1.0.1 version to latest 1.0.3.1?

Or is necessary 1.0.1.->1.0.2->1.0.3.1 ?

Many Thanks,
D. Suraci

Yes, absolutely - you can upgrade directly to any newer version from any older version.

Cheers!

I have been playing with this for a couple of days now. It is one of the most well-thought-out software programs that I have ever encountered. My students were using it successfully in ten minutes.

Wow!

I am still using 1.0.3.1.

Just a quick question... When I attach a file to a messge in a forum on our site (as I have here), it uploads. I see it in the files section. But there is no link to the file in the upper right corner of the message. I am clearly doing something wrong. Any idea what my mistake is? File permissions, maybe? Wrong path?

Thanks,

Hi, Art.

That's a known bug that only appears on new installations using 1.0.3.1 (not on older versions that were upgraded).

Basically the "attachments" field in the forum_posts table doesn't get created. You'll see the SQL command near the bottom of version.php. It's probably easiest to just upgrade to 1.0.4 which will fix it right up.

Cheers!

Thanks,

I will upgrade as soon as I find a spare 30 minutes. I think that we are really going to get a lot of use out of this feature... It will help us, um, "deal with" the frustrating restrictions our proxy server imposes on us. big grin
