  • Production release notes (Monday - Week 2)
  • Production release and documentation (Saturday AM - Week 2)
  • No updates or notes (Week 3)

Canvas Release Notes

You can view all of the release notes in the Canvas Community at Canvas Release Notes.

Beta Environment

You can explore new features on our beta environment of Canvas at  This server is refreshed every week, so please do not create content that you hope to save in this environment.  This is a great place to experiment with new tools or to try an existing tool that you have never used before.
