Moodle 1.8.11

Release date: 25th November 2009

Important: Upgrading is very highly recommended!

Here is the full list of fixed issues in 1.8.11.

Functional changes

  • After upgrading, admins will be asked to change their passwords next time they log in (manual or email based self-registration accounts only).
  • To reduce the risk of password theft, a password salt is set in config.php in new installs and for upgrades, admins are sent an email recommending that they do so.
  • Teachers lose permission to include ANY user data in a course backup or restore a course including user data due to new capabilities moodle/backup:userinfo and moodle/restore:userinfo which are not set for the default role of teacher. Sites with custom roles should check permissions carefully.
  • Hashed user passwords are no longer saved in backup files containing user data. If a backup is restored to a new site, users will be asked to go through the "forgot my password" routine the first time they log in.
  • In Moodle 1.8.11+ weekly from 23/12/09 onwards: Moodle will no longer serve any uploaded Flash files to browsers with old Flash plugins. Admins can set the minimum required Flash player version in Site Administration > Security > HTTP Security.
