Moodle 1.9 gets life support through 2013 from Catalyst and Totara LMS


Many were worried about the news that Moodle HQ is ending official support of Moodle version 1.9 this summer.  However a recent announcement from Dan Marsden on the forums should let at least a few Moodle using institutions breathe easier,

I’m pleased to announce that when Moodle HQ ends support for Moodle 1.9 security issues in June the Moodle PartnerCatalyst IT will provide long-term support for serious security issues with Moodle 1.9 until Dec 2013 thanks to funding/sponsorship from Totara LMS

We will monitor all serious security fixes applied to stable releases and apply those fixes (if required) to the 1.9 branch – we will also address any reported serious security issues that only affect the 1.9 branch.

The code will be available from the same place as usual, via or git://

Thanks to the team from Totara LMS for providing the sponsorship to allow this to happen!

Kudos to Catalyst IT for leading this project (share the love with a comment to show your support at
