EdX has just released the newest version of the edX platform on edx.org and edX Edge.

This release includes the following updates.

  • On the Video Uploads page, users who try to upload files that are not in .mp4 or .mov format now receive an error message.

  • In the edX video player, the video playback slider and the volume slider are now visible in high contrast mode. 

  • Discussions now offer a post listing view and a post details view. The post listing view shows the title and first line of each post. The post details view shows the post along with its comments and responses. Both views are available in inline discussions, on the Teams page, and on the Discussions page.

    For more information, see Inline Discussion Improvements (partners) on the edX partner portal or Inline Discussion Improvements (Open edX) on the Open edX portal.

For more information about these and other changes in this release, see the edX Release Notes. You can access the weekly release notes, as well as all of the edX documentation, at docs.edx.org.
