    Hello, I have a problem. LMS Moodle is installed on the server with php 7.4.2, and the plugin is written for php 7.2. Will the plugin version for php 7.4 be prepared ? Thanks.

    @Игорь П
    It will be supported eventually. Bear in mind that support for PHP 7.4 in Moodle is also limited at the moment and should not be used in production environments.
