Open edX DogWood版本特性


前一阵子在社区发现一个有意思的点,Open edX的版本顺序为:Aspen、Birch、Cypress、DogWood、Eucalyptus,正好是字母表的ABCDE。以后可以不用这些复杂的全称,直接用D版本来简称DogWood就行。


根据现有的安装情况来看,安装过程中问题少了很多,看来Open edX在易用性方面逐渐在提升。

      • deployments that run with ENABLE_COURSE_DISCOVERY set to False, may see courses missing on their Course Catalog page
      • the Courses API “/api/courses/v1/courses/” may not include all courses in the system


  • “shoppingcart” 功能应该在Dogwood中考虑为废弃,将来的版本中会被移除。类似服务将由”Otto” 来取代。

  • The “graphical_slider_tool” is deprecated, and will no longer be available starting in in Eucalyptus (the code has been removed from Master).
