Yeah, same. v2.x.x was/is pretty stable in terms of code churn.

v3.0.x was a huge departure from v2.x.x so I wouldn't expect it to apply there.

In any case i'm glad Universities are finally making good use of FOSS*.


* I was mightily impressed that new Open University course on data analysis shipped as a Virtual Box VM deployed by Vagrant :)

Less impressed it took two hours to download a 2GB file from their CDN, but baby steps... Who knows maybe they'll offer Eduroam as a service for students as well as staff at some point in the next decade. Given that the majority of the courses they offer are remote, you'd think a priority would be giving students access to WiFi at physical Universities.
