This article below has no reference to further releases beyond Q4 2015 and lists future reference as a release date so I am posting about it being updated.

Our manage-hosted production system was updated to April 2017 Q2 CU2 in mid-August. Although we had tested this release on our staging servers, there were plenty of problems left to find.

Upon clicking the link a new window opens and is closed immediately, the user is thrown back to the page where he initially clicked the link. Apparently Blackboard is aware of this issue for a while now, see… (Show more)
Our institution will be switching over to peoplesoft in a year, and we are starting to think about the Blackboard integration with Peoplesoft, and how it will be affected with this change. It has been mentioned that purchasing the SAIP from peoplesoft is an option. Can anyone share their experiences with using peoplesoft, and how they have it… (Show more)
I have 2 reports from different faculty who have imported course content using a "Import Package" utility.   The file, normally generated out of an organization is causing certain (not all) courses to flip into organizations.
