Preview Mahara 21.10
01 October 2021, 20:27
Right on time for the beginning of the new month, we are delighted to make this preview version for Mahara 21.10 available to you so you can check it out before we are finalising the release before the end of the month.
If you come across any bugs, please report them before mid October if possible. We will then review them and decide whether we can still fix them before the release of Mahara 21.10.0 by the end of October 2021, or whether they will go into a later release.
There are a number of new features in Mahara 21.10. The biggest of them is the implementation of LTI Advantage that allows for automatic group creation and enrolment of students. This feature will soon be documented in the Mahara manual for Mahara 21.10.
The Mahara manual is currently being updated, and we'll let you know once that has finished.
You can view a list of all the bugs that have been fixed and new features that will go into Mahara 21.10.
If you reported bugs and they have been fixed, pay particular attention to them and check that all is working now.
You can use our developer instance developer instance from next week on to check out the new features of Mahara that don't require site administrator access if you can't install it yourself.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks to everyone who's been testing the preview version and providing feedback. We released another preview version that contains fixes to the issues discovered. You are welcome to download the release candidate or access it on Git and give it a go on a testing environment. We will release Mahara 21.10.0 next week, which will also mean that the currently supported versions, Mahara 21.04, 20.10, and 20.04 will receive updates. This will be the end of the support for Mahara 20.04 though, and we encourage those of you using that to upgrade.
