Release date: 15 May 2017 (Not yet released)

Here is the full list of fixed issues in 3.3.

See our New Features page for a more user-friendly introduction to Moodle 3.2 with screenshots.

If you are upgrading from previous version, make sure you read the Upgrading documentation.

Server requirements

These are just the minimum supported versions. We recommend keeping all of your software up-to-date.

  • Moodle upgrade: Moodle 2.7 or later (if upgrading from earlier versions, you must upgrade to 2.7.14 as a first step)
  • PHP version: minimum PHP 5.6.5. Note: minimum PHP version has increased since Moodle 3.1. PHP 7.0.x and 7.1.x are supported but have some engine limitations.
  • PHP extensions openssl and fileinfo are now required in Moodle 3.3, they were recommended in 3.2
  • If you use PostgreSQL the minimum supported version is now 9.3 (was 9.1 in Moodle 3.2)

Moodle supports the following database servers. Again, version numbers are just the minimum supported version. We recommend running the latest stable version of any software.
