Install languages in the site administration
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Elasticsearch 7
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
|languages| Site administrators can install `any translation of Mahara <https://translations.launchpad.net/mahara-lang/>`_ directly in the :ref:`site administration area <languages>`. Languages can also be updated there. The translations make the interface available in languages other than English. No matter the interface language though, account holders can type text in any language.
|elasticsearch| :ref:`Elasticsearch 7 <plugin_elasticsearch7>` is available as plugin to perform fulltext search and report indexing functionalities. It can be used instead of Elasticsearch 5 or 6 and comes with a few more settings.
Set up portfolio completion in group collections
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Similarity check with Ouriginal in Moodle
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
|completion| If a group is created in an institution that allows the use of the portfolio completion functionality, you can :ref:`set up group portfolio templates <group_portfolios>` that add this page. Learners can then copy the template and have the page ready to go on their personal portfolios.
|ouriginal| Using the Mahara assignment submission plugin (web services) and additional functionalities in the Ouriginal Moodle plugin, it is possible to submit portfolios to Ouriginal via Moodle for a similarity check. In Mahara, :ref:`web services <ouriginal>` need to be enabled along with a new export format.
Institution support administrator role
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
|support admin| People providing support for an institution, e.g. helpdesk or hotline support, can now receive the :ref:`'Institution support administrator' role <institution_support_admin>`, which includes all permissions from the 'Institution staff' role and the possibility to masquerade as a regular institution member and as institution staff.
Download SmartEvidence framework
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
|se download| If you created your SmartEvidence framework on your Mahara site instead of uploading it as a JSON file, you can now download it from the :ref:`SmartEvidence framework management page <smartevidence_overview>` and upload it to another Mahara site. This makes sharing of frameworks easier and doesn't require that they are uploaded first, but they can be created directly in Mahara.
Install languages in the site administration

Résumé changes

|languages| Site administrators can install `any translation of Mahara <https://translations.launchpad.net/mahara-lang/>`_ directly in the :ref:`site administration area <languages>`.

|completion| If a group is created in an institution that allows the use of the portfolio completion functionality, you can :ref:`set up group portfolio templates <group_portfolios>` that add this page. Learners can then copy the template and have the page ready to go on their personal portfolios.
Prevent changes to 'Sign-off' block on copied templates
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
|sign-off lock| To prevent accidental changes to the :ref:`'Sign-off' block <sign-off_block>` on portfolios that are copied from a template, the block settings are not available to portfolio authors once they made a copy of the template.
