New release Izanami.2

In 30 seconds...

We just launched our second minor release in Izanami, and it is a very exciting one! Release Izanami.2 features, along with again smaller UI improvements, updates and extensions to existing features in CodeGrade.

A very popular request from the teachers using CodeGrade was that of sharing personal snippets between accounts. To elegantly solve this issue we have in I.2 released Course Snippets, snippets that can be set up by the teacher of a course and are shared by and available to all graders grading in that course. Course snippets complement the existing personal snippets, so all previous personal snippets will remain usable and available.

Another exciting update of a previous feature is Hand-in Requirements, an extension of our previous CGIgnore file functionality. With the hand-in requirements, you can set up strict requirements for an assignment that enable you to require, deny or allow certain files in a submission. We think that the hand-in requirements are a great improvement over the CGIgnore files and further allow teachers to increase the efficiency of grading by having more consistent submissions.

In addition to the above changes, this release features an improved documentation with getting started guides, improved snippet management, ability to upload multiple individual files and finalising support for Blackboard and Moodle. Read more about all things added and updated in Izanami.2 here. Expect some big news on CodeGrade AutoTest, one of our most anticipated features, and improvements to the Filesystem in our next major release coming next month.
