Moodle 1.6 Released

After going through five beta versions, the wait for Moodle 1.6 is finally over. Martin released 1.6 last Tuesday (download, release notes).

Moodle is an open source Learning Management System (LMS). Here are some resources to get you started:

The best way to get involved in the community is to create an account on and join the Using Moodle course. If you want to test drive Moodle, I have set up three test/demo sites that I keep up to date with the latest code from the corresponding CVS branches:

  Moodle 1.5.4 is the previous stable release. This site tracks the 1.5 stable branch in CVS.
  Moodle 1.6 is the current stable release. This site tracks the 1.6 stable branch in CVS.
  This site tracks the development branch of Moodle, the latest bleeding edge stuff from the CVS HEAD branch.
Moodle 1.5.4+
Moodle 1.6+
Moodle 1.7

Feel free to create user accounts and to poke around.
