+<H3> Release notes for Moodle 1.0.6</H3>
  2
+
  3
+<P>  Major changes in this release (since 1.0.5):   </P>
  4
+
  5
+<UL><DL>
  6
+<DT> New feature - WYSIWYG Text editing!
  7
+<DD> A WYSIWYG text editor has been added to many of the forms in Moodle.  These are currently 
  8
+     only visible when using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or later - other browsers see the 
  9
+     normal forms exactly as before.<BR><BR>
  10
+
  11
+<DT> New feature - Quiz module!
  12
+<DD> Finally, the most requested new module is here!  Multiple choice, short answer, and true-false
  13
+     questions with automatic marking, multiple attempts, teacher regrading and many other features.
  14
+     Questions are stored in a categorised database, and may be "published" to other courses.<BR><BR>
  15
+
  16
+<DT> New feature - Grade manager!
  17
+<DD> A new tool has been added for teachers to see all grades for a course on one page.
  18
+     You can also download/export grades as a tab-separated text file or an Excel
  19
+     Spreadsheet.  In future more features will be added to this page like sorting, manual 
  20
+     columns and calculations, but it's still pretty useful right now.<BR><BR>
  21
+
  22
+<DT> New feature - LDAP authentication!
  23
+<DD> Moodle can now authenticate against external directories that use the 
  24
+     LDAP protocol (including Novell etc).  Many thanks to Petri Asikainen for
  25
+     developing this authentication plug-in!<BR><BR>
  26
+
  27
+<DT> New feature - New smilies
  28
+<DD> Many new smilies have been added, and are now also accessible using a GUI in the text editor.<BR><BR>
  29
+
  30
+<DT> Improved text editing
  31
+<DD> You can now include all major HTML tags in all texts.  This is now safe because 
  32
+     of newly added functionality that strips all Javascript and faulty tags from texts 
  33
+     before they can cause security or display problems.<BR><BR>
  34
+
  35
+<DT> Languages
  36
+<DD> German and Italian have been added!  Many thanks to the translators (see the credits).<BR><BR>
  37
+
  38
+<DT> Reading module => Resource module
  39
+<DD> After much thought and a vote of support (21 "yes" to 6 "no") on the "Using Moodle" 
  40
+     web site I changed the name of the "reading" module to "resource" (at the code level
  41
+     and also the language packs).  It was better to do this earlier than later.
  42
+     This more generic name will be more meaningful to more people and opens the way to 
  43
+     some real development on a resource library.
  44
+     But I don't want to ever change a module name again!  :-)
  45
+     If you have any hard-coded URLs pointing to readings that you don't want to break,
  46
+     you can add a line like this to your Apache httpd.conf to redirect them:
  47
+     <B><CODE>Redirect /mod/reading http://yourserver.com/mod/resource</CODE></B><BR><BR>
  48
+     <FONT COLOR=RED>Note: if upgrading to 1.0.6 you may have some "reading" errors in "Recent activity" ... logging
  49
+     out and then logging in again will fix this</FONT><BR><BR>
  50
+
  51
+<DT> Other additions
  52
+<DD> An admin script to totally delete the Moodle data directory has been included (admin/delete.php)
  53
+     for people who need to tear down a Moodle installation but don't have root access on their
  54
+     server.<BR><BR>
  55
+
  56
+<DT> Miscellaneous
  57
+<DD> Many small improvements have been made to the interface, and many small bugs have been fixed.
  58
+     Some examples: 
  59
+     <UL>
  60
+     <LI> Big "Edit this page" buttons at the top of pages (replacing the tiny icon)
  61
+     <LI> LDAP authentication module (thanks to Petri)
  62
+     <LI> Authentication from external sources can now import any fields
