In this Canvas Release, the changes below become part of the main Canvas environment.

  • Recent History: The Global Navigation Menu includes a Recent History link, which displays recently visited pages in Canvas.
  • Notification Preferences: The user-level Notifications page has been updated to match the design of the course-level Notifications page.
  • MathJax Equation Improvements: The MathJax JS library has been improved to render equations in a more accessible format and promote ease of use. Math equations created anywhere in Canvas will be rendered as MathML.
