Moodle 4.0 and release support update

1 month ago
by Sander Bangma.  

Hi all,

We're approaching the end of the year and I want to provide an update on Moodle 4.0. We're progressing well and are working through the final changes!

Current status

  • The majority of the big UX changes have been integrated
  • There are a few key issues landing in the next week or so that will still have a big impact on the 4.0 experience:
    • MDL-71457: Update the Moodle activity icons
    • MDL-72457: Remove container borders for theme boost
    • MDL-72897: Mark the current section in the course index
  • With these landed we will allow some time to review and apply polish

Important dates

The above means that we are now working towards the following timeline:
  • QA cycle start mid to late January 2022
  • QA cycle finish end of February
  • Moodle 4.0 release in March 2022

Moodle support timeframes

Following on from these dates we will extend the security support for Moodle 3.11 by 6 months to provide additional overlap with the Moodle 4.0 release allowing more time to migrate sites. We will also shift the Moodle 4.1 release date to November 2022.

Moodle 4.0 release update

2 months 2 weeks ago
by Sander Bangma.  

Hi All,

A quick update on the Moodle 4.0 release.

We've seen much progress in the last couple of months. Many of the big changes have already been integrated or are going through integration as we speak. Moodle 4.0 is starting to take shape, which you can follow on our QA site. Note that we're currently transitioning from the old 3.x navigation to the new 4.0 navigation, so expect a lot of changes there in the next few weeks. 

We've continued to iterate and improve the designs. This means we still have some final pieces to finish off through November. We want to make sure we bring these changes home before we start the QA cycle.

Looking at the calendar the aim is to start the QA cycle end of November / early December. This means we'll target the Moodle 4.0 release for early in the new year.

Hi All,

Earlier this month we had two new UXers start at Moodle as part of the LMS team. You can read a bit more about it in my post, but please welcome Uli and Shasa

One of their first projects is helping us to re-design Moodle.org and create a new experience for the Moodle Community. We'd love your input into that. Please read Uli's post and join the discussion! 😃

How can we improve the Moodle.org experience for you?
