Canvas Production Release Notes (2017-06-24) 

In this production release (June 24), admins and designers can create and maintain course design templates for an entire institution. The Box previewer and Crocodoc annotation tools throughout Canvas have been replaced with Canvas DocViewer, which provides improved performance for a variety of document and image types. For institutions using custom JavaScript, accordion widgets are no longer supported as a jQueryUI component. For institutions using student context cards, student group leader names in a group set display context card details. Other small changes have been made to the Rich Content Editor content selector and the Course Settings sidebar buttons.

Production release notes also include fixed bugs.
