|Queueing||Redis replaces Rabbit|
Several features are deprecated or deleted in the Open edX Hawthorn release.
unified_course_view, which can be used for the new view of the course outline on a separate page, was deprecated in Ginkgo. The old sidebar navigation and this waffle flag will be fully removed in the next release. We recommend switching this flag to
True, so that you will not experience any change with the next release.
django-simple-historyhas been deprecated and removed.
LogoutViewConfigurationmodel has been removed. Single logout is now permanently enabled. This meants that logging out of the LMS or an IDA logs you out of all systems.
