Product Update |  2018-07-13 | Cirrus Assessment

Following the release on July 6 at 07:00am CET, we will have a smaller release on July 13 at 07:00am CET which will focus on smaller fixes and improvements. We expect around 10 minutes downtime for this release.

Announcing a low impact release but with a fresh look and feel and some nice improvements:

The release is planned for Friday July 13th at 7am CET (check your local time here). There will be approximately 10 minutes of possible service interruption due to migrations involved. 

Style update: keeping it fresh!

We like to keep it fresh, which is why we will change the styling of overview pages, the toolbar and modal windows:


Marking: improved submissions page

On the Marking > Submissions Overview (which shows all hand-ins for a schedule) We will show the notifications we previously showed in the blue notification bars in an panel that slides out from the right hand side:2018-07-05_1116-Marking-submissions-side-bar.png

Please note that items listed in an announcement for a release can be subject to change. We are working very hard to get all this great stuff out to you. However, each item goes through our rigorous manual and automated testing and needs to get a final 'green light' to be included. Our announcements serve to give you a heads up. Upon request we also offer the opportunity for you to do your own pre-testing for high-impact releases.
