Week of 7 March 2016

The following information summarizes what is new in the edX platform this week.

The edX engineering wiki Release Pages provide detailed information about every change made to the edx-platform GitHub repository. If you are interested in additional information about every change in a release, create a user account for the wiki and review the dated release pages.


The LMS dashboard now displays information about more than one XSeries for courses. If a course is part of more than one XSeries, information about each XSeries appears in the dashboard section for that course.

EdX Documentation

The search feature for edX documentation includes two improvements.

  • You can now include punctuation and other non-alphanumeric characters in search terms. For example, you can search for terms such as “A/B testing” or “user_id.”
  • The snippet of content in search results no longer shows .. include:: for some results. Those search results now show a sample of the actual documentation content in the results.
