A list of the third party plugins within Mahara.

A helpful way to update this list is to go:

 find ./htdocs -type f -iname "README.Mahara" -exec grep 'Version' -B1 {} \; -print

on the current codebase.

Note: another thing to keep in sync is the country names we use for 'Country' dropdowns. To check what the current state of play is

 perl -MLocale::Country -le 'print join("\n", sort map { country2code($_) . " => " . country2code($_, LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_3) . ", // " . $_ } all_country_names())'

and check the results against htdocs/lib/country.php and htdocs/lang/en.utf8/mahara.php files For any confusion you can also check against

Indicating what version they are on in Mahara and what they currently are on at time of publishing 09 Jan 2019:

Current versions marked in Red indicate the plugin needs updating/upgrading.
