Michael de Raadt has a quick (10 minutes) synopsis of the new features in Moodle 2.7 and those under development for future releases now (event monitoring, report builder, navigation and more).
The well done video provides an overview of new Moodle themes in 2.7, Atto as the text editor, new conditional release options, logging and events, and changes to activities like the quiz and assignment. Well worth watching for the fresh perspective that Michael brings.
