Lets start at the end: why am I using still this version?
- everything works
- We have 1237 users on it
- We have 146 running and try-out courses on it
- we made lots of small patches, for example
- to integrate the gradebook with columns
- to make the excelsheet download working for grades (and gradebook)
- to make the short answerfield longer (user request)
- to allow Novell UN/PWs working
- to connect LDAP
- to allow the adminuser to surpass the LDAP for special users
- to change several fields from input to echo (not overrule email form LDAP, let users use forward email instead..)
- to hide the header of a hidden section for users (user request)
- to jump from the bold current day to the section of current week in our calendar
Bill Gates offers several versions of his product windows. Bill offers you to check your system and advises you which patches to install. But YOU (= I ) choose..
OK, a small version of this would be:
- The technical hats of Moodle make a long list of approved patches for each release and situation
- For a new release this list is updated: some patches are no longer necessary
- Until this day I have the choice to use only the limited core set of Moodle or do a lot of handtuning myself. (And with version 2.0 in the near future, the support for 1.3 will slowdown?)
By the way, Bill extended the promissed expiration date of Windows98 again...so..1.4?
Ok, I tested the situation in beta 1.3 (other server) Yes there it is gone, nice, thanks..
(I cannot give you there a handmade account, because I did not yet implement the patch to surpass the LDAP.)
