Certain clients may have experienced performance issues and outages when common notification queries were processed on their servers. Learn 9.1 Q4 2015 addresses many of these issues.
When creating an announcement, "Not Date Restricted" is now selected by default.
This release fixes an issue with email sent from BlackboardLearn. Some email clients do not use the reply-to header of emails sent from Blackboard Learn to populate the "To:" field when the user replies to an email. As a result, some students were confused when they received email from do-not-reply@<bblearn_domain> instead of their instructor's email address.
Users can navigate from thread to thread without having to return to the main Discussions page.
Browser & HTML5 Support
Learn 9.1 now supports the Microsoft Edge browser. Some new browser releases no longer support NPAPI plugins. Without these plugins, some Learn features may not render correctly. The Content Editor now supports HTML5 Audio and Video playback in Chrome and Edge browsers.
This release includes new language packs for Thai (th_TH) and Malay (ms_MY) languages.
