Moodle continues to work behind the scenes, fixing identified bugs and security issues, now updated in the 3.1.2 and 3.0.6 point releases.
Moodle made the 3.1.2 and 3.0.6 point releases available on Monday 12 September, now downloadable at moodle.download.org
The open source software is updated with minor releases that are made available (roughly) every two months.
These releases contain bug fixes and improvements to Moodle’s functionality and security.
The routine usability improvements and fixes smooth out bugs and/or security issues that Moodlers might face with the major releases.
In Moodle 3.1.2 point release, the following important issues and bugs are now fixed:
- Lessons: students’ attempts are saved in lessons if they timeout
- Navigation tree: identified bug that caused navigation tree to not work in some cases has been fixed
- Grading: there is now a warning for teachers about removing level 0 in rubrics as it leads to unexpected grades
- Calendar: automatic update to the calendar event name when there’s inline changing activity name or duplicating activity
- Feedback: the error that comes up when trying to view/export feedback responses with over 60 questions is now fixed
- Filepicker: improvement in the filepicker now allows teachers to access course files in hidden categories.
The full list of improvements and features for Moodle 3.1.2 can be accessed in the release notes.
In Moodle 3.0.6 point release, the lessons, navigation tree, file picker and calendar bugs as per the above are also now fixed.
The full list of improvements and features for Moodle 3.0.6 can be also accessed in the release notes.
MoodleCloud sites, including Moodle for Free and Moodle for School accounts, will be upgraded automatically to the 3.1.2 version within one to two days.
