Course End Dates

Instructors and administrators can now assign an end date to a course along with a start date. Conduit also fully supports the mapping of end date field in its settings. Integrations with Conduit can pass a value to this field as part of a CSV or web service. Currently, the end date is used for analytics, but in future releases of Moodle, the field will be used in the user experience to help determine which courses show to the users.

Forum Locking

Instructors can configure forums to lock after a period of inactivity within the forum. When a forum is locked students can't post or reply to the forum. Only instructors are able to post to the locked forum. This unlocks the forum and opens up discussions again.

Assignment Overrides

Assignment overrides allow instructors to assign different submission start dates, due dates, and cut-off dates for different individuals and groups. 

Plus other enhancements and fixes that you can find here.
