<DT> Layout</DT>
<DD> A number of small improvements have been in the layout (such as the forum posting
screen) to make it clearer, neater and smaller. Almost all text entry screens
now have specific help items alongside them (depending on the pedagogical
focus). The forums now have a quick search form available on every page.</DD>

+ from the course home page.</DD>
+<DT> Authorisation </DT>
+<DD> The database module now supports databases that contain md5-encrypted passwords,
+ which means it should now be compatible with systems like PostNuke. When using

+ before they can enter any course.</DD>

+<DT> Debugging mode </DT>
+<DD> Admins/developers can use a "debugging mode" which prints more information

+ find bugs. To make this work a LOT of cleaning up has been done on existing
+ Moodle code to make it more robust.</DD>
