The WeBWorKTeam is pleased to announce the release of WeBWorK 2.2.2. This release builds on WeBWorK 2.2.1, adding several bug fixes and low-impact feature enhancements.

  • Updated to jsMath version 3.3c. See for details of the changes.
  • Fixed a problem where WeBWorK assumed that columns were in a specific order in the database. Now, columns can be in any order.
  • Make the Hardcopy Generator edit links use the same window as other edit links.
  • Improve wording and fix typos in various modules.
  • The Library Browser now indicates if a problem is already listed in the target set.
  • Fixed a spurrious security error when previewing course info and set header files.
  • Enable viewing of the default set and hardcopy header files in the PG Problem Editor. (This allows the files to be saved to the course templates directory for editing.)
