  1. Mahara 17.04 release and new features (Kristina) (anzeljg, 21:06:36)
    1. Mahara 17.04 is coming up in just a short while. We are planning on releasing in the second half of April 2017. (anitsirk, 21:07:05)
    2. We are not quite at the release candidate yet. It's a bit late this time because we want to get a bunch of cool features still into this next release. These are: (anitsirk, 21:07:41)
    3. Combination of pages and collections https://reviews.mahara.org/#/q/status:open+project:mahara+branch:master+topic:%22merge+p%2526c%22 (anitsirk, 21:07:58)
    4. App-style like navigation https://reviews.mahara.org/#/c/7416/ (anitsirk, 21:08:19)
    5. Dmitrii_ is Dmitrii Metelkin from Catalyst, AU (Dmitrii_, 21:08:22)
    6. LTI integration https://reviews.mahara.org/7495 (anitsirk, 21:08:43)
    7. improved watchlist https://reviews.mahara.org/6059 (anitsirk, 21:09:02)
    8. We are working on the design updates as well in parallel because Raw and Default need to be updated to the new Mahara colors. (anitsirk, 21:09:51)
    9. Cecilia already swapped out the old logo for the new one and all minor point releases will receive those as well. (anitsirk, 21:10:12)
    10. and Liam found a nice way to choose an appropriate light or dark logo based on the background color chosen for the configurable theme. (anitsirk, 21:10:36)
    11. the LTI integration is going very well. :-) (anitsirk, 21:12:21)
    12. we have the auth working via LTI and are starting testing this week with Uni of Canberra and Instructure. (anitsirk, 21:12:42)
    13. we still need to test SAML / LDAP and LTI together, but so far judging from how well it works with internal auth, I'm very hopeful. (anitsirk, 21:13:08)
    14. Since we are moving to the app-style navigation, i.e. hamburger menues throughout - see https://wiki.mahara.org/wiki/Developer_Area/Specifications_in_Development/App_style_navigation we needed to make a new raw theme (anitsirk, 21:15:09)
    15. Since this new navigation is quite a departure from the current themes, we will still provide the old raw theme as "Old raw" and people who don't want to use the new navigation could still work with their custom themes and simply base it on the old raw theme. (anitsirk, 21:16:03)
    16. all built-in Mahara themes will be using the app-style navigation. (anitsirk, 21:16:17)
    17. but with a bit of manual updates, the current 16.10 ones could be used and based on the old raw theme. (anitsirk, 21:16:39)
    18. pat has also made theme updates and consolidations are still in review I believe so that theming becomes easier (anitsirk, 21:17:08)
    19. https://reviews.mahara.org/7273 (anitsirk, 21:18:23)
    20. the above link takes you to the consolidation patch. This is to make things easier to theme. slight adjustments from version to version can be expected, but it's certainly not a re-design as going from 15.04 to 15.10 or later. (anitsirk, 21:19:01)
    21. ghada: it's been tested with canvas and moodle. (anitsirk, 21:29:47)
    22. Robert will present LTI integration at Mahara Hui in Auckland (anzeljg, 21:38:00)

  2. Next meeting and chair (anzeljg, 21:40:07)
