Congratulations to our GSoC 2017 student
 

Congratulations and very well done to our Google Summer of Code 2017 student Diwakar Moturu for successfully completing his project Improve End-to-End Testing in the Moodle Mobile App.

According to project mentor and Moodle Mobile team leader Juan Leyva, "Thanks to Diwakar’s work we have now a complete set of automatic tests that will notify us if we accidentally introduced regressions in the code. This means that we have new tools to guarantee that new versions of the mobile app are 100% stable."

For more details of Diwakar's GSoC experience, please see the interview with Diwakar and Juan on moodle.com: Moodle completes its 11th year of Google Summer of Code with a mobile project!

Moodle 3.3.2, 3.2.5 and 3.1.8 are now available
 

Moodle 3.3.2, 3.2.5 and 3.1.8 are now available via the usual open download channels: https://download.moodle.org or Git.

For those of you on our MoodleCloud hosting service, including Moodle for Free sites, we are aiming to upgrade your sites to 3.3.2 within the next 10 days.

In addition to a number of bug fixes and small improvements, security vulnerabilities have been discovered and fixed.  We highly recommend that you upgrade your sites as soon as possible. Upgrading should be very straightforward. As per our usual policy, admins of all registered Moodle sites will be notified of security issue details directly via email and we'll publish details more widely in a week. Other details can be found in our notes for each release:

Version 3.1 (LTS) is currently supported for security fixes only. Moodle 3.4 is expected in November 2017. See releases page for more details.
