What a month it's been! Our developments are going faster than ever and we again have some exciting things to share with you. Our latest release, "PerfectlyNormal.1" is out, with many improvements to user experience. Not only have we been busy in the front end, we have also been working hard on the back end for "secret" but awesome future features.

Firstly, we have completely revamped our general feedback functionality. General Feedback is a powerful way of giving feedback in CodeGrade and a great addition to the inline comments you write. It now supports our awesome features like snippets, markdown and discussions (i.e. students can reply to your general feedback). Moreover, it is now available in Peer Feedback grading too!

Start using CodeGrade: the most advanced Computer Science grading and feedback platform!

Next to this, we have noticed that more and more teachers have starting using our powerful Python API library. Our API helps automate your workflow, make tasks more efficient and connect CodeGrade to all of your other tools (like Git!). We already had a great webinar on using the API, which you can watch here, but now also have a dedicated Help Center for it, full of helpful examples and extensive documentation. Find it here: https://python.api.codegrade.com/.

Furthermore, we have made many smaller improvements to CodeGrade. Amongst other things, it is now possible to show the source code of markdown (.md) files too and it is possible to directly navigate to the submissions of an assignment via a handy shortcut button on the Assignment Management page.

We keep improving CodeGrade for you with a new release every month. To find a full list of all our changes, please check out the full release notes in our changelog here.
