Actualización de plugin desde adentro de Moodle

Plugins para formato de Cursos

Moodle has always supported pluggable course formats, but now we've given developers even more flexibility than before. Course formats can now provide their own settings for courses and sections, and they can also have a lot more control of all the pages in a course.

We're looking forward to seeing some exciting course formats from the community in future. (Note that in 2.4 the standard course formats have not been changed).

Temas gráficos

  • MDL-22955 - Support for SVG icons.
  • MDL-34299 - All pages are now served with HTML5 doctype by default. This allows us to improve usability, add new features, developers can use reliable iframe tag instead of broken object embedding, data attributes may simplify JavaScript code, etc.
  • MDL-36487, MDL-36481 - Improved compatibility with Internet Explorer 8-10.
  • MDL-34915 - SimpleYUI enables similar coding style to JQuery, it is intended especially for theme designers.
  • Multiple RTL fixes and improvements.
  • MDL-34080 - Complete overhaul of all icons. The default icons used for activities and editing actions have been updated for the first time since Moodle 1.0. Not only are they a little bigger and more colourful but they are SVG format and support full scaling on all devices, so they always look good. (Developers, see Moodle icons 2.4)
  • MDL-36544 - Remove special border-radius on course/site description block, standard theme

Integración mejorada con el editor TinyMCE

The integration of TinyMCE editor was significantly improved:

  • MDL-33041 - Support for fully configurable add-on plugins extending standard TinyMCE.
  • MDL-35172 - New TinyMCE editor settings allowing an admin to customise the toolbar, enable/disable icons such as insert equation and insert emoticon.
  • MDL-35955 - Support for built-in browser spell checking.
