10
* core_enrol_external::get_enrolled_users now supports two additional parameters for ordering: sortby and sortdirection.
11
12
* Enrolment plugins UI have been consolidated. Plugins can implement use_standard_editing_ui() function
  and add edit_instance_form() and edit_instance_validation() methods instead of providing their own edit.php and form.
13
  They can then rely on the default implementation of get_action_icons and get_course_navigation. In future this will
14
  mean they can be called by webservices/user upload tools because they can validate their data.
