Release of Mahara 1.5


Mahara is one of the open source projects Catalyst IT is involved in for core development work. As release managers and maintainers, we are happy to announce the release of version 1.5 of this ePortfolio software. A dedicated team at Catalyst as well as contributors from around the world accomplished to implement 84 new documented features and numerous bug fixes reported by users of the software.

Mahara, which is a popular ePortfolio and collaboration solution, integrates well with Moodle for single sign-on and portfolio export. In New Zealand, it is most well-known as MyPortfolio. The school version, MyPortfolio.school.nz, is made available for free as portfolio platform to schools, and over 1,000 schools have already chosen to explore and use it with students and teachers.

You can find out more about this new version of Mahara in the release notes and give it a go. 690 downloads have already been registered since its release on Tuesday, 17 April 2012.
