  • Moodle 3.5.2 and other minor versions are now available
    by Sander Bangma.  

    We have just released Moodle 3.5.2, 3.4.5, 3.3.8 and 3.1.14. These are now available for download via https://download.moodle.org or Git.

    There are a number of GDPR and other fixes and improvements. Moodle 3.4.5 and 3.3.8 now have the GDPR plugins integrated, which means they will no longer require to be downloaded and installed separately from the plugin database.  Moodle 3.5 already has the plugins integrated since its release in May earlier this year.

    A final update to the Policies and Data Privacy GDPR plugins for Moodle 3.3 and 3.4 has been released on the plugin database. After this release the plugins will no longer be updated as they are now part of the stable releases.

    All released minor versions include a number of fixes for security vulnerabilities.  We highly recommend that you upgrade your sites as soon as possible. Upgrading should be very straightforward. 

    Administrators of all registered Moodle sites will receive an email with details of the security fixes and we'll publish these more widely next week. 

    The release notes for each version can be found here:

  • Version 3.5.0 of the Moodle app is now available
    by Juan Leyva.  


    Moodle Mobile 3.5.0 new interface

    I'm pleased to announce the release of version 3.5.0 of the Moodle app. The app is available now on Google Play and will be in the App Store and  Windows stores soon - see Moodle downloads: Moodle app and Moodle downloads: Moodle Desktop.

    We’ll be calling it simply the 'Moodle app' from now on (leaving out the word 'Mobile' as it's obvious).

    Key features and improvements in 3.5.0 include:


    • A new user interface with many usability improvements

    • The display of Moodle 3.5 dashboard course images

    • The display of Moodle 3.5 choice results

    • Improved support for Vimeo embedded videos using Bootstrap responsive classes

    • Options for administrators to disable offline mode or course download

    • Improved mobile support for plugins.

    See the Moodle Mobile 3.5.0 release notes for the full list of features, improvements and fixes in this release.

    Note that the 3.5.0 Moodle app works only with Moodle 3.1 sites onwards and requires Android 4.4 or iOS 8.

    If you have an older device or your site is running Moodle 2.4 - 3.0,  you can continue using the older app, which we have named 'Moodle Classic'. Moodle Classic won’t support any of the new features, but is provided to enable people running older Moodle sites to continue using the app.

    Finally, we would love to hear your feedback about the 3.5.0 Moodle app! Please let us know what you think by posting in the Moodle for mobile forum.
