Moodle 3.3.3, 3.2.6 and 3.1.9 are now available

Sun, 11/12/2017 - 20:31

by Marina Glancy.  

Moodle 3.3.3, 3.2.6 and 3.1.9 are now available via the usual open download channels: https://download.moodle.org or Git.

In addition to a number of bug fixes and small improvements, security vulnerabilities have been discovered and fixed.  We highly recommend that you upgrade your sites as soon as possible. Upgrading should be very straightforward. As per our usual policy, admins of all registered Moodle sites will be notified of security issue details directly via email and we'll publish details more widely in a week. Other details can be found in our notes for each release:

Version 3.2 from now on is supported for security fixes only. See releases page for more details.

A big thank you to all our Quality Assurance (QA) testers, as listed in the Testing credits, who helped us achieve a Moodle 3.4 test pass rate of 100% in just 4 weeks. Congratulations to everyone who received a Moodle tester 2017 badge for running three or more tests in the QA cycle.

Thanks also to all our developers, who helped with fixing bugs identified through testing, so that tests could be reset and run again as quickly as possible. Thus we are all ready for Moodle 3.4 to be released on schedule next week!
