Canvas deploys take place every other week. For questions about deploys, please see the Canvas Deploy FAQ.

Beginning 2020-04-04, deploy notes still include interface updates and resolved bugs previously included in the known issues list. Additionally, for interested customers, the notes include an automated summary of all source code being deployed to the production environment.

Filtered Deploy List
The Canvas release list filters results for production release notes with the newest release first.

 

Comprehensive Archive

This archive is a single document that includes links to all Canvas deploys displayed in a comprehensive list with the newest release first. Release notes originate with the Canvas community launch in April 2015.

 

This archive is useful if you want to see when a fixed bug deployed without having to view all release notes individually.
