21* instance_config_form() must now be declared static for php5.4 compatibility.
22
23* get_listing() and search() file metadata details are now now more prominently
24 displayed in the interface. Dates and timestamos are now able to be sorted on in
25 the filepicker interface so plugin authors are asked to ensure:
26 - Dates are defined as UNIX timestamps
27 - Filesize is an integer in bytes
28
29* It is recomended to define function get_file_source_info() to provide more rich
30 infromation about the source of a file.
31
32* The API was extended to allow repositories can now support external references, please
33 see http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Repository_API for further details.
