=== 4.0.1 ===

* A new callback xxx_pre_enable_plugin_actions has been added in admin/modules.php. Plugins can use this callback to
  force additional actions (e.g. displaying notifications, modals, etc.) before enabling the plugin. The expected
  return value (bool) from the plugin callback method specifies whether the process of enabling the plugin should
  continue after the added actions or not.

  encrypted (with the new \core\encryption API) so that even the admin cannot read them.

* Web services administration has been moved from Plugins into the Server category. If you have
  Behat tests containing steps like `Given I navigate to "Plugins > Web services > ..."`, you will
  want to replace them with `Given I navigate to "Server > Web services > ..."`.

  RTLized based on their PARAM_* type. To override that guess, use
  admin_setting::set_force_ltr(true/false).
