Comment attachments:
Students and teachers can now attach up to three files to any comment, annotation or explanation card they create throughout the platform.

Partial support for Blackboard REST API:
All API calls for groups, group memberships and course memberships can now be made using the Blackboard REST API. Calls for calendars still need SOAP for now.

LTI 1.3 beta
It is now possible to integrate FeedbackFruits in your LMS using the new version of LTI. This version has some advantages, like the possibility of syncing memberships and deeper grading without the need for an API integration. If you want to test this functionality you can contact our support or for Dutch partners contact Menno de Kok and for international partners contact Annika Borgstede.
