It's my understanding that the August 2017 release is a full release, and not the beta version any more. Since I've revised our Canvas Advanced course: Accelerated Course Design Using Cidi Labs Design Tools, I want to confirm this version number. Also, is the Admin Guide's Release Notes (https://cidilabs.instructure.com/courses/288/pages/august-18-2017) open to all users of Design Tools?
Thank you for a much improved product that makes rapid course development that much more quick and fun!
We do not use numbered releases. Items that appear in the release notes are what is currently available and yes, those release notes are publicly available. You may also want to take a look at the Design Tools Training course that is available through Canvas Commons. I have made a few changes to that course that I have not pushed up to Commons but it might provide some useful information for you.
Hope that helps.
