Week of 14 November 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.


Learners who have not specifically selected a time zone in their edX account settings now see times and dates on their dashboards, in the body of their courses, and on their Progress pages in the time zone that their browser specifies. Browser dates and times appear in military time and are followed by a time zone indicator: for example, 17:00 Sept 5, 2016 IOT. Other dates and times in their courses appear in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), and do not have a time zone indicator.
