Moodle 3.1 Released

Moodle 3.1 was released today. The new version includes support for competencies, a recycling bin, and numerous smaller improvements.

The new version doesn’t increase the system requirements from what was required for 3.0 and other recent versions.

Upgrading to 3.1 can only be done from at least version 2.7, so that will mean those still using 2.6 or older will need to do an intermediate upgrade when upgrading to 3.1.

More information is available in the release notes.
