    Herman Cosmin; I was upgrading this plugin after each new major release for years, I agreed to move the repository under your name because you agreed on maintaining it. Since you adopted this plugin no new versions have been release, you do not maintain it and you do not reply to people's questions. There are lots of sites using this module and this number of sites using it is decreasing since you adopted it (some stats here We had discussed this in the github repository and you are not even replying to people concerned with this module future. I think that it would be better to hand this plugin maintenance to someone else interested in really maintaining it.

    Hi all! We've released updated versions for Moodle 3.1 - 3.4 and we will be maintaining this plugin. Sorry for the delay.

    Issue using the web installer to install this module after upgrading to Moodle 3.3 (Journal Build: 2017121101) from Moodle 3.1 (Journal Build: 2017121105):
    "moodle plugin installation pre-check failed (reasoncode:cannotdowngrade)"

    I noticed that the Moodle 3.3 version sets the internal version 2017121101, but the Moodle 3.4 version sets the internal version 2017121100. That makes a Moodle 3.3 to Moodle 3.4 upgrade impossible with this plugin.

    I upgraded Moodle without the Journal plugin and copied the pre-upgrade build to the mod directory - this seems to be working fine. Any gotchas I should be aware of?

    We've updated the version number for Moodle 3.2 - 3.4 to fix the upgrade issues.

    Any idea on when 3.5 version will be released - had to disable as there was a problem with the plugin that stopped cron from running...

    @Emma Did all cron jobs stop running? How were you able to determine that the journal plugin was the culprit? What were some of the symptoms?

    I ask because we recently upgraded to 3.5 and thus far haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary but this has me concerned.

    @ Herman we're also interested in an update for 3.5

    So, yesterday I reenabled it - haven't changed much on the site except to upgrade some other plugins. No more problems with cron - have no idea why I had problems initially but very happy to have journal back up and running! Originally, cron was stalling out on me. I turned debugging on and try to run it manually. It referenced journal in the debugging so I disabled and then cron ran fine. I wonder if getting cron through one run actually resolved the issue? Sorry, don't have more details as I now cannot replicate (which is a success in my book!!)

    Why does the view all journals view include non-enrolled users? It shows everyone who has high level access, but is not enrolled, with "No entry." This has some instructors worried that there are "lurkers" in the courses.

    It has now been 11 months since you last made any changes to this plugin - it still does not support 3.5 and is missing the privacy API. You stated in May 2018 that you would look at the privacy api within the next few days but you haven't provided any further updates to reported issues in github. If you are not able to support this plugin please pass it back to the community so someone else can do it properly.

    Because the maintainers appear to be "on vacation" I started to look for a substitute and stumbled across some of the really old postings from the days that Journal was being replaced by Online Assignments. One thing mentioned, in a few posts, was seeing something similar to the Journals "overview" page on OAs. It was mentioned that OA would have a "quick view" to accomplish this, but it was never detailed. From what I can see there is no Quick View in OA. Is there??
