Moodle 2.7, the latest major release from Moodle.org was released yesterday May 12th. There were a host of new features which were discussed around the web previously, including but not limited to the new Moodle specific text editor Atto, a responsive first approach to themes (only More and Clean will be included with fresh installs of Moodle 2.7), enhancements to conditional activities, new mathematical equation editor, logging, improved performance and more.
Those hesitant to make the jump to 2.7 might reconsider as 2.7 which is the first major release since 1.9 to receive long term support until May 2017.
