Releases > Moodle 3.1.3 release notes

Release date: 14 November 2016

Here is the full list of fixed issues in 3.1.3.

Functional changes

  • MDL-56022 - Assignment: Allow to bulk download students submissions in separate folders to avoid file renaming confirmations
  • MDL-46946 - Prompt users to complete required custom user profile fields before allowing them to use the site
  • MDL-43796 - Assignment: When importing an assignment with blind marking into another course never reveal identities

API changes

  • MDL-52051 - Migrate to Dropbox API v2
  • MDL-55602 - Sessions: Add support for Redis as a session_class_handler

Security issues

  • MSA-16-0023 Question engine allows access to files that should not be available
  • MSA-16-0024 Non-admin site managers may accidentally edit admins via web services
  • MSA-16-0025 Capability to view course notes is checked in the wrong context
  • MSA-16-0026 When debugging is enabled, error exceptions returned from webservices could contain private data.

This was not considered to be a security issue when the advisories were prepared, but it is a serious data-protection issue, so you way want to know about it:

  • MDL-55858 - Remove unsubscribe link from notification email in forum with forced subscription
  • MDL-45969 - PDF annotations now show the submission of the selected attempt (fixed the bug when only last attempt was shown)
