You can see the full release notes for 2.9.3 here.

If you’re working under the hood, there are a number of important highlights and fixes/improvements to check out. However, if you’re like the majority of Moodlers who spend most of their time interacting as a user, check out:

  1. An improvement to the visualization to the backpack badge/icon
  2. A more obvious way to add a photo to a profile
  3. A better layout of the activity results block

Also, there have been a few functional changes worth noting, such as:

  1. An instructor (without permission) cannot change the name of a course, even during restore.
  2. Managers can now access other users’ preferences
  3. When you copy an HTML block, Moodle now also copies the embedded files within it.
  4. When you reset a course and change the start date, Moodle adjust the date restrictions and updates the calendar events.
