New Features in Canvas 11/3/2012

Canvas will releases new features now on a five-week cycle to make life a little less hectic for students and faculty.  Bug fixes will still happen on a three-week cycle, and will continue posting these here as well.

New Features:  Please notice that new items like new Announcements, Discussions, or Grades will have a badge associated with them showing that they have not been viewed by you yet.  Once you view an item, the badge will disappear, effectively marking the item as Read.

Image editing is now going to work better in the Rich Text Editor across a number of browsers.  And it should now be easier for you to see if a New Feature Request you are interested in is already requested by someone else or maybe already being worked on.
