Last Friday, 6 April 2018, we, the Mahara core team at Catalyst, released Mahara 18.04. It was half a year of intense work especially getting the GDPR features in to help institutions in their compliance with that new EU regulation.

The GDPR is also the reason for the early release of Mahara 18.04. Typically, we release towards the end of the month. Since we know that many institutions need to upgrade before 25 May 2018, we made sure to release as soon as possible to give everyone a bit more time to upgrade.

It was a pleasure to work on Mahara 18.04. There are many other new features in this release, and it’s been fantastic to see one of our part-time students having contributed a lot of bug fixes and also some new features that had been on our wishlist for a very long time.

Here’s the video I made to introduce a number of the new features.
