The release of Moodle 2.o is a major step towards a more advanced Moodle community system as well, with more and easier ways to link your Moodle to course/content repositories (and to other Moodle sites).
Note that the latest build for 2.0 is unstable, download, install and use at your own risk. It is not recommended for use as a production/live site.
