BigBlueButton 2.4-beta-3

This release of BigBlueButton 2.4 includes numerous fixes and stability improvements. The UX for Learning Dashboard has been significantly improved.

Note that it runs on Ubuntu Bionic (18.04) and HTML5 client runs on Node 12 (same as BigBlueButton 2.3).

BigBlueButton 2.4-dev is under active development. While we don’t recommend setting it up in a production environment, we do encourage administrators to try out the build with others and give us feedback on our bigbluebutton-dev mailing list.
