EdX has just released the newest version of the edX platform on edx.org and edX Edge.

This release includes the following updates and enhancements.

  • The cohort management section of the instructor dashboard now displays status information to help course teams determine whether the feature is enabled and working properly.
  • For Open edX sites, a change to the courseware_studentmodulehistory database table requires a new database configuration and offers an optional data migration. This change does not apply to the Dogwood release of Open edX. For more information, see Replacing the courseware_studentmodulehistory Table.

​For more information about other changes in this release, see the edX Release Notes. You can access the weekly release notes, as well as all of the edX documentation, at docs.edx.org.
