In this production release (December 10), users with instructor roles can receive group announcement notifications without being enrolled in a course group and can automatically assign groups by section in the People page. For all users who have customized their Courses list, Canvas automatically adds all new enrollments as a favorite. Users who can manage Outcomes will notice a placement change for the Manage Rubrics button. All users will also notice small updates in Files and in Rich Content Editor links, as well as a global font update throughout Canvas. This release also includes a number of bug fixes.
