Version 2.2.0 Release

Hi All,

A quick note to announce we’ve tagged a point release on the master branch, version 2.2.0.

Among other fixes and enhancements, this release adds a few key features.

  1. Annotation Categories, which can be managed in the admin UI, applied per-annotation, and filtered on in the document right hand sidebar.
  2. Manual sorting of annotations in the sidebar, to allow instructors to put annotations in an order, along with a save settings feature, to allow a given sort/filter set to be saved for application on document load.
  3. Integration with an outside media repository, MEL Catalog, developed by Performant Software for the Melville Electronic Library.

These features are all configurable, and will be turned off on our default installation of the application, but we will soon add the option to enable them per-subdomain, so if you’re interested, you can use them.

If you’re eager to try out these features, reply to this message, and let us know!

Thanks,

Jamie

Note, too, that while these features are in our master branch on github, we have not deployed them to our production instance yet.
