Accompanying the major Moodle 3.5 release, 4 minor updates to the previous versions still in active development or security upgrades period are available. Moodle HQ Sander Bangma, Open Source Development Coordinator, officially announced them.
Moodle 3.4.3 Highlights
The implementation of the GDPR-friendly “Privacy API” is the main novelty of the minor release, but lots of tweaks across Moodle, including Assignment, File management, Calendar, Lesson, Database, Quiz, Search, Facebook Graph-based (OAuth 2) authentication, and performance enhancements are available in this release as well as Moodle 3.3.6. Several minor security checks were also added.
Features not announced in Moodle 3.3.6 include a total number of participants displaying on the Participants page, Self-enrolled users can be deactivated when the site switches self-enrollments off, and a fix for a bug preventing teachers to see answers for different attempts.
Please note that only from this release forward is Moodle 3.4 GDPR compliant.
Moodle 3.3.6 Highlights
Other than a subset of the Moodle 3.4.3 improvements, including the 6 security issues fixed, no outstanding new features are included.
Only from this release forward is Moodle 3.3 GDPR compliant.
Moodle 3.2.9 Highlights (Final upgrade)
This was the final release for Moodle 3.2, which with the new “Boost” default theme would bring Moodle into an experience design-conscious era out of the box. The only news here are the same security upgrades from the newer releases, to which admins are highly encouraged to move up.
Moodle 3.2 is not GDPR compliant.
Moodle 3.1.12 (Long Term Support) Highlights
This release, which will enjoy security fixes for another year, brings the same security fixes from the other versions.
