            Release Notes: The system added the new concept of a "community," which allows users to collaboratively share and discuss documents.

The release also includes several security and usability enhancements.

              Release Notes: The bridgetask problem type again allows uploading of any kind of file if no filetype was specified by the author.

Display of user lists, filtered by status, is possible again for languages other than English. The configuration of notification email addresses for warnings and errors generated by batchjobs is now easier.

                Release Notes: Files uploaded by students for submission to assignments are subject to a size restriction. The assigned quota and the amount of disk space currently in use for the user's Portfolio are displayed. The zip-file with of all files submitted by students to a particular assignment now includes files uploaded directly as well as files selected from students' Portfolios. System-generated text in a notification email is localized according to the recipient's or course language preference. The starting day of the week used in the calendar is determined by locale.

                  Release Notes: Dynamic plots are again rendered in individualizing homework problems. Several backward compatibility issues in connection with short answer problems were fixed. Domain Coordinators are again able to access assigned co-author roles in other domains (e.g., other schools and universities).

                    Release Notes: Course coordinators see recent enrollment changes on the "What's New" screen. When cloning a course, they can shift all dates and times at once to adjust to a new semester or year. Finally, they can switch roles on-the-fly to test their courses from the perspective of students, instructors, and teaching assistants. The DragMath editor was incorporated into algebraic and formula response problems. Students can now self-enroll into designated courses, and the process can be coupled with other institutional authentication and authorization systems.

                      Release Notes: This version eliminates erroneous timeouts during print jobs and implements better warnings if resources could not be rendered. In exam mode, the generation of randomized numerical bubbles was fixed for the situation where the correct answer is zero. The Spanish, German, and Portuguese localization files were updated. Printing now correctly supports UTF-8.
