MathType for LMS release notes

MathType - Integrations for Moodle - 8.6.2 - December 2023

Bug fixing release. Fixed one bug that showed a warning to a set of users to update the Moodle plugin when they should not, which would cause the software to not work. The warning is now shown to the correct set of users. Fixed another bug that made Wiris Quizzes Cloze questions not work.

What's fixed

  • When users of WirisQuizzes added WirisQuizzes Cloze questions to Quizzes in Courses, sometimes an error was displayed, and the question was not usable -- it returned an error when it was previewed or used. This release fixes this error.

  • A message suggesting Moodle users to upgrade their integration with TinyMCE to TinyMCE6 appeared to the wrong users.

    It is being shown to users with Moodle versions before 4.2, which do not support TinyMCE6. This release will restrict the warning message to users of Moodle 4.2 or higher.

  • Also, the release fixes a bug that would not display the rendered equations when using the viewer version 1.2.0 and greater for the render type Client. Instead, Moodle would display the MathML code. This has been fixed, and now the equations are rendered for this environment with these conditions.

Mathtype - Integrations for Moodle - 8.6.1 - October 2023

A little bug-fixing release.

What's fixed

  • Fixed a bug that was affecting the Wiris filter

Mathtype - Integrations for Moodle - 8.6.0 - October 2023

We have ensured the compatibility of our Moodle integration with the new release of Moodle 4.3. We have fixed an annoying behavior User Experience-wise when upgrading Moodle with an old version of TinyMCE (legacy). We have also fixed a bug that triggered an error signal although the error was not really happening.

What's fixed

  • Added a warning that created an error when upgrading the Moodle version.

    Newer versions of Moodle are incompatible with the legacy TinyMCE Editor. When users upgraded their versions to Moodle 4.2, they had to uninstall the legacy TinyMCE and install the new TinyMCE 6. If they don't do this, an error is shown. Since we cannot uninstall automatically the legacy version, we have added a warning/notification for users when installing Moodle 4.2 or greater to install TinyMCE 6. 

  • An error message appeared when inserting content into the page incorrectly stating that TinyMCE did not exist.

MathType - Integrations for Moodle - 8.4.0 - September 2023

A minor release that complies with the requirements of the Moodle Certification Badge. Additionally, we have fixed a bug that prevented our Moodle integration from integrating properly with TinyMCE 6.

What's Improved

  • We are now compliant with the blocking and mandatory issues raised by our Moodle Partners to get the Certification Badge.

  • Also requested by our Moodle Partners, our privacy API has been fixed, and our GitHub repository for the MathType for Moodle integration with TinyMCE 6 has been renamed to moodle-tiny_wiris.

What's fixed

Some error warnings and lost configuration issues have been fixed for the MathType for Moodle integration with TinyMCE 6. The bug was caused by a dependency with the MathType for Atto integration.
