Moodle 3.3 – the latest Moodle version released this week got a most number of Moodle plugins ready before its release. All the plugins which were tested and updated for Moodle 3.3 were awarded with the Early Bird badge in the Moodle Plugins directory.
This time a total of 153 plugins were awarded with the Early Bird Badge. Last time for Moodle 3.2 the count was 129. The trend of awarding the Moodle Plugins with Early Bird badge is increasing since its inception for Moodle 3.0 when only 81 plugins were awarded.
The plugins triathlon is a good initiative to motivate the community plugin developers to keep their plugin up-to-date with the latest release of Moodle. On the other hand side, it helps the site administrators to easily upgrade their Moodle site to new version without waiting for plugins update.
