    "Version 2.0

    Moodle 2.0, our biggest release ever, is coming together after two years of development. It contains a huge number of core changes to the platform, most of which are designed to give 3rd party developers more flexibility, scalability and safety.

    The timetable is designed to deliver Moodle 2.0 in time for the new school year in the northern hemisphere and currently looks like this:

    * March 2010: Moodle 2.0 Beta release
    * April, May, June 2010: intensive beta testing and bug fixing (freeze on new features)
    * 1 July 2010: Moodle 2.0 production release

    You can track our current progress in detail on the Moodle 2.0 Planning document. Please remember that this document is frequently updated and details can change a lot!

    Draft release notes at Moodle 2.0 release notes. Please add notable items while they are fresh in your mind. The notes will be edited before the final release.

    System requirements

    Since Moodle 2.0 is such a major release, we are allowing ourselves some increases in the requirements.

    * PHP 5.2.8 is now the minimum version supported. (We are aware that several important linux distros are still shipping earlier versions like 5.2.6, but we need at least version 5.2.x for the new File API, and there are bugs in 5.2.7 and earlier that we could not work around.) This allows developers to write cleaner code using the more recent features of PHP, and will also improve user experience.

    * Databases should be one of the following:
    o MySQL 5.0.25 or later (InnoDB storage engine highly recommended)
    o PostgreSQL 8.3 or later
    o Oracle 10.2 or later
    o MS SQL 2005 or later

    * When upgrading to Moodle 2.0, you must have Moodle 1.9 or later. if you are using an earlier version of Moodle (eg 1.8.x) then you need to upgrade to Moodle 1.9.x first.
