Why are some ZiLink plugins marked 'Beta' or 'Release Candidate'?

ZiLink comprises a number of plugins working together. Each plugin has its own version number. For the complete list go to your Moodle, Site Administration > ZiLink > Versions.

In the version list you will notice the status for each plugin. There may be a plugin marked 'Release Candidate' or 'Beta'. There may also be a corresponding mark on the configuration of each plugin. The purpose of making them available is to support the development of the plugin.

Please note that plugins marked 'Beta' or 'Release Candidate' will not the same level of support as plugins not so marked.

A plugin marked 'Release Candidate' has been tested with our own test data BUT is still under final development but could be used in your production site at your own risk. Please remember that issues associated with a plugin that is marked as 'Release Candidate' will have a low a priority to investigate or resolve.

Beta status

A plugin marked 'Beta' has NOT been tested with our own test data AND is still under development. IT SHOULD NOT BE USED IN YOUR PRODUCTION SITE.
