🌴 Palm has been released!

It’s that time of the year again! The Open edX Build/Test/Release working group is proud to present the latest major release of our favorite learning platform: Palm :palm_tree:!

The release is packed with improvements and interesting new features, including an improved Discussions interface, a new visual problem editor, and a new ORA grading experience.

Detailed release notes are available at Open edX Palm Release — Latest documentation (at the time of this announcement the release notes are still being finalized, but should become available in a few hours). Thanks to @pdpinch for preparing the notes!

You should also have a look at the Changelog from Tutor, to check all the nice changes that have landed since you last upgraded: tutor/CHANGELOG.md at master · overhangio/tutor · GitHub

The release would not have been possible without the relentless work of the Build Test Release Working Group members. Thanks to the group chair @jalondonot for coordinating the release. Thanks to @regis and the Tutor maintainers for for their continued work on Tutor. Thanks to everyone who helped identify and fix issues with the release!

Now go upgrade your Open edX platforms and enjoy! :rocket: :palm_tree:


Thanks a lot for the great work @mtyaka and everyone!!!



The bottom of the release notes says there are no known issues. What is the criteria for placement there? This is an issue that’s been preventing me from upgrading since Lilac…

Sometimes I felt we are bending too much to create something we want. Can we just go with simple steps?
