Preview Mahara 19.10
10 October 2019, 12:55 PM
Hello Mahara community,
We are delighted to invite you to preview Mahara 19.10 before we release it at the end of October.
This first preview version of Mahara 19.10 is available for download. You can download it or access it on Git. If you do not have a test server available where you can install it, you are welcome to check it out at https://master.dev.mahara.org.
We will review your reports and decide whether any of these issues would need to be fixed before the stable release of Mahara 19.10.0. If bugs are found that are critical to the working of Mahara, we may produce another release candidate. Otherwise, this release candidate will become the final 19.10.0 release.
Mahara 19.10 will have numerous new features that focus in particular on the usability of the platform. They and all others are all listed on Launchpad with the "nominatedfeature" tag.
Some new features include:
- Placeholder block
- More flexible layout
- "Details" mode, in particular when giving feedback
- Show artefact comments on a page via a modal
- Assignment plans
- Colour or image for page header background
- Removal of database triggers
- Revoke portfolio submission when done via LTI
Check out these new features in a recent presentation to KiwiMUG.
Currently, we are updating the Mahara manual. Stay tuned for an update on that.
We look forward to your feedback on the new features, and the installation or upgrade process.
