    Thanks for your plugin.
    But I have question: What your plugin don't support Moodle from version 3.11 only from 4.0, which this version is not publish?

    Hi Jaroslaw!
    One of the projects that we've implemented in Moodle 4.0, which will be released soon, is the plugins review:
    In this project, we've removed several plugins from the standard Moodle package and moved them to the plugins directory. So this plugin is included in Moodle 3.11 (that's why there is no version for Moodle 4.0) but you can install it from 4.0 onwards if you are interested in using it.
