Release notes

Moodle Recycle Bin

This plugin adds a "recycle bin" for course modules to Moodle. It requires a core hack.

Installation

As there is no pre-cm-deleted event, you will need to add a line to '/course/lib.php' (function course_delete_module), right after the first "if()".

diff --git a/course/lib.php b/course/lib.php
