Browser support lifecycle

Investigation

The browser is recognized and under consideration by D2L, but has not been tested against any versions of D2L products and may never be fully supported.

This category is mainly used for new browsers that have a significant user base, good vendor support, and are generally considered as candidates for future D2L support.

Supported

The browser and operating system combination have been fully tested by D2L.

Maintenance

The browser is not tested extensively against new versions of D2L products, but customers can still report problems and receive support for critical issues with previous versions. D2L does not guarantee all issues will be addressed.

A browser goes into maintenance either when a vendor officially ends support for it or D2L decides to end support for it.

A maintenance browser becomes officially unsupported after one year.

Unsupported

The browser is not tested and no fixes are performed for unsupported browsers. D2L does not guarantee any product functionality and offers no support for reported problems.

Generally, D2L ends support for a browser one year after the associated vendor ends their official support for it.

WHAT IS CONTINUOUS DELIVERY?

Continuous Delivery (CD) is a design practice used in software development to automate and improve the process of software delivery. The Continuous Delivery model will allow D2L to deliver updated technology to clients, enabling rapid, incremental delivery of high quality, valuable new functionality to users. This frictionless model also makes it possible to increase collaboration with clients and to adapt software in line with user feedback and needs, resulting in incremental and easily integrated changes.

 

Montana State University's Brightspace LE instance is aligned under Continuous Delivery in August of 2015.

 

Note: Desire2Learn has been renamed Brightspace. It is still called D2L as well.
