Just gone to Moodle.org and the site was down... thought it odd as it's never done that before so quickly Googled Moodle 2.0 released and saw this in the results...
Moodle.org: Download standard packages

Website looks like it's back now, must be getting some serious hits on the downloads at the moment!
Done this yeturday with some bad luck!
Seem all our course files get 404 error (Think it was that)
When you upload a new course file its fine!
Its just all the old files (Major Bugger)
Ayone else had this problem?
So at my gusse its all the files under legeacy course files section
I'd just done an upgrade to 1.9.10 only to find it has been released! Finding that the existing template is a bit b0rked in 1.9.10 on a few browsers too so need to do some more work over the weekend on it ... perhaps just bite the bullet!
Be carefull with the upgrade
Found its made alot of our resource file broken
Seem every resourse file that is broken we need to editt it and put in a description in it the save, after that it works.
Did not old version not require a description then? New one it seem it has a star beside the box, so you have to have it
I can't help with the needing to get a description with the resource files when upgrading problem -but - when you add new stuff in Moodle 2.0 you don't HAVE to have the description. You can turn it off in site admin>plugins>activity modules>file.
Hmmm. may be best not to apply the update then.... might get shouted at!!
Yeah ... if you have any custom theme then you are going to have to have a good look at it.
I've been using the i-Dock addition on the custom_corners theme (many thanks to the wonderful Dan) and now found that it is not loading the frontpage properly and I am struggling to dig out the custom code to keep it happy. Even with tested themes there were problems such as the admin and profiles links not by workable links.
I have found 'decaf' as a theme works very well ... just got to get rid of those extra bits.
Also struggling to get the blogging just right again so I have turned it off for now.
Thanks for that secretlife, did search the settings before, most have missed this out somehow, managed to turn the requirement off
Now the weird thing I need to do now is make it so I go to the update setting of a resource file and the click save settings, if not i get a question mark file for the icon of the file with a 404 error
This seems weird that I would need to do this, hense I'm not actually making any changes to the resourse file
Have you been given any hint as to when CLEO might implement it?
No - I don't work for CLEO; I work for a CLEO school. But I can tell you that they can't implement it until the contributed modules such as HotPotatoes and Questionnaire and Book etc are upgraded to work with Moodle 2.0 Then there is the retraining involved. I wouldn't expect it until next September though I might be wrong -if it's earlier then the'll have to organise some serious retraining.
Judging by these posts I'm guessing some people have gone for the 1.9 to 2.0 update then?
I'm not taking any chances until I've done a lot more testing and customised a 2.0 theme to match our current site... need Microsoft to update their Live@Edu plugin as well which could be an issue
I went from 1.9 to 2.0 on a test site and all fine. Agree about the template issue. I am lucky that most plugins I had added are now native in 2.0! Did wonder if it is possible to turn off the My Private Files feature though? Anyone know how too?
