If you’ve been to one of our Canvas Overviews or Great Migrations you have heard us comment that Canvas is on a two week update cycle. This meant that every two weeks Canvas would release an update that would do things like fix bugs or add new features. However, as of a few days ago they have changed their policy. A quote from a recent update:
“As some of you may have heard, we’re now moving to a three-week development cycle followed by two-weeks of beta testing before we release code to production. We’ll release features and bug fixes every three weeks, but the full release process for a sprint will be five weeks (three weeks of development and two weeks of beta testing).
One of our major goals is to make sure you’re aware of new features two weeks before their release or when they hit beta. That way, you’ll have enough time to test features in beta and to give the client services and product teams your feedback.”

We will do our best to keep you updated on any major updates that Canvas has. If you would like to do some research on your own, or have your own questions, you can also visit the Canvas Community forums.
