Our online developer meeting last Friday was packed with demonstrations of new features coming in Moodle 2.0, including the navigation and settings blocks (thanks to Sam Hemelryk and Tim Hunt), the TaskChain module, a replacement for the HotPot module (thanks to Gordon Bateson), and the new Workshop module (thanks to David Mudrák).

Thanks to everyone who participated in the meeting, especially those who had to get up early or stay up late, and to Dan Poltawski who logged in whilst on holiday in Tenerife!

Our online developer meeting today had plenty of interesting topics of discussion.

In addition to discussing a number of items in our Roadmap, Martin D talked about our new coding guidelines, the place to start if you want to know how to write code for Moodle.

If you’re a Workshop module fan, you’ll be happy to hear that the module is being completely rewritten by David Mudrák for Moodle 2.0. Please see Development:Workshop 2.0 specification and join the Workshop 2.0 specification – request for review and comments discussion.

It was great to hear from Mihai Sucan, one of our GSOC 2009 students, about his project to develop an online painting tool inside Moodle. Please see Development:Paint tool for the emerging specification.

For anyone who missed the meeting, notes and a recording link will be available soon: Developer meeting April 2009.

In our Moodle HQ meeting today, we went through the Moodle 2.0 Planning document, updating it where necessary. Martin D also asked everyone to go through the list of Moodle 1.9.5 unresolved issues and reduce the number of issues (currently 221!) to a more realistic figure, assuming 1.9.5 will be released within the next few weeks.

Our next developer meeting is the day after tomorrow at 11:00 UTC on Thursday 30 April 2009. If there’s anything you’d like discussed, please add it to the meeting agenda: Developer meeting April 2009.
