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

This release includes the following updates.

  • Several improvements have been made to the Discussion page in the LMS. A list of topics, rather than posts, appears by default, and the Search All Posts option has been relocated. For more information, refer to this “Coming Soon” announcment for edX partners or the Open edX community.
  • A series of incremental improvements to grade computations are now complete. As a result of these changes, system performance for loading the learner Progress page has increased significantly.
  • For course team members using the LMS, the Staff Debug Info option now appears only next to assessment types that allow you to reset the number of attempts or rescore the problem, such as the core CAPA problem types.

​For more information about the 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.
