New features include:
- Course categories. Sites with many courses (more than ten?) may want to define more categories (eg Science, Humanities, Business etc) and this will trigger a new interface on the course listing. If you only have one category (as per previous versions) then the interface remains the same and all courses are shown in one list.
- A "choice" can now have up to 6 options (formerly only two).
- Teachers can now define "roles" for each teacher in a course, as well as they order they appear in when displayed. For example, you might have a Professor, a Tutor and two Assistants, in that order. You can also define the collective noun (eg "Teachers") in the Course Settings page.
- A template empty module for developers was created, with instructions.
- Moodle now supports "drop-in" modules for database administration (see the Download page).
- As well as the data-based Moodle version number, a new "release version" variable shows the "human" release number (eg 1.0.4) on the site home page (hover over the "made with moodle" icon).
- ADOdb library files converted from DOS to Unix format - one user had experienced FTP problems.
- As usual, lots of interface tweaks and bug fixes.
