For a few weeks, discussion posts marked as anonymous would still expose the post author’s name. A fix was merged to prevent this from happening in the future. Any posts that were intended to be anonymous authored between February 8 2017 and March 7 2017 will still show the author’s username to other students. (TNL-6648)

We have extended the “view as a specific learner” functionality to the progress page. (TNL-5047)


The Video ID field has been added to the “Basic” tab of the video component to simplify authoring. (TNL-6489)
