Kia ora,

We are pleased to announce the release of Mahara 24.04, which we released today.

Highlights in Mahara 24.04 include:

  • Enhancements to SmartEvidence to have multiple assessors and an additional assessment status
  • The continuing professional development plugin is now part of Mahara core
  • Retrieve deleted text
  • Show recently used content types
  • Copy blocks
  • Embed Riff
  • View Mahara in dark mode ('Raw' and 'Default' themes)
  • Easily report issues to an administrator

Watch the feature release video for a brief description of the highlights in this release.

The Mahara manual is in the process of being updated with these and other new features as well as changed functionality. We expect to have that done within the next month.

The code for Mahara 24.04 is available to subscribers in our repository, both in Git and as downloadable package.
