Hi there, we had problems with spammers, and I had to close the forum but it is back up now. Summer also took its toll, and I was too busy with family, and Moodle 2 development to take care of the site for a wee while. I apologize.
I will be posting a bit about Moodle 2 here on the blog in the next day or so, but in short, we are not ready and won’t be ready this month. We tossed up releasing a few components early, but decided that it would be better to get further down the road before we release anything. I hope that doesn’t inconvenience too many people.
