comment RTL with tabluar
@scottkosty bidi uses \beginL etc. internally, but they are not user level commands in general. bidi does provide different user level commands and environments for embedding RTL text within LTR and vice versa. I know nothing about RTL languages and babel so I can't help you with your second question.

comment Any LaTeX editor recommendations to use with Moodle?
Moodle doesn't actually use LaTeX, but MathJax. While mathjax uses LaTeX syntax, it uses Javascript and HTML's DOM model rather than TeX technology, making it mostly off topic for this site. You might try instead searching among the questions tagged with mathjax on Stack Overflow, or in the official mathjax-users Google group.

comment RTL with tabluar
@scottkosty Yes, that's a good way of thinking about it. (Substituting 'column' for 'row', which I assume is what you meant.)

comment RTL with tabluar
@scottkosty yes that's what I meant. The bidi package sets tables RTL in RTL mode and the same table LTR in LTR mode.

comment RTL with tabluar
@scottkosty I don't know about LyX but in the code above the first column at the left will be the first column on the right when typeset in RTL mode.

comment RTL with tabluar
From my understanding, the table itself is not entered RTL in the source, but LTR and then will automatically be made RTL by bidi. (Also the \beginL and \endL code isn't necessary, nor are the global language options, (and a few other things) but I assume you can't change this since it's generated by LyX.

comment Rule of thumb for synchronizing/updating Tex distributions
@kando Unpaid volunteers usually work to the schedule that adapts to their time and the task at hand. Also, some years may have more extensive changes which take longer to test and implement. Remember TeX Live supports many platforms, and even for the major OSs there are various versions most of which need to be tested. It's a major undertaking every year. Typically though mid summer is roughly when the new year appears.

comment Rule of thumb for synchronizing/updating Tex distributions
Are you talking about commercial use or personal use? Commercial users are much more conservative about updating their software generally. For personal use, you can either take @ChristianHupfer 's approach or you can use the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach, and use an older distribution until you need some new package or functionality or you encounter a bug that is fixed in a more recent distribution. Most of us are probably somewhere in between those two extremes though.
