Oh dear, it's my first blog post of the year.
There is probably something more interesting I could talk about, but we're getting a bunch of questions about 2.4 versions of OU plugins lately.
To recap the OU schedule:
- We typically go live with a Moodle release about six months after it comes out, unless something goes wrong.
- Development for our release takes a three-month period that ends about a month before our release.
In this particular case for 2.4:
- We should have stable versions of our plugins for 2.4 (MOODLE_24_STABLE) in June.
- We should have development versions (on the master branch) that work in 2.4 at some point between February (yes, I know it's February now) and the end of April.
Of course, some of our plugins from previous releases may continue to work unchanged - it depends whether any of the APIs in Moodle core were modified in a way that breaks our plugins in that release.
Where our plugins don't work in 2.4, feel free to file an issue on our GitHub site, but be aware that we won't fix it until our development period starts. If it's a simple problem and you want to fix it for us by submitting a patch, please do - we'll try to apply these patches early in the development period, i.e. more like February than April. (We can't apply them before the development period starts though, sorry.)
