Log of Major Tutorial Updates

How to find version histories

Notebook tutorials

All Jupyter Notebook tutorial headers contain the date “last verified to run”. If the date in the file you are using does not match the date shown in that file in the “prod” branch of the tutorial-notebooks repository, your version is out of date. Follow the instructions for what to do if notebooks do not automatically update in the Troubleshooting tips.

A full history for all tutorial notebooks can be accessed in GitHub via this direct link to the commit log for the tutorial-notebooks repository.

The full history for any given tutorial notebook can be accessed via GitHub by going to the notebook of interest (e.g., the introduction to DP0.2 notebook), and clicking on “history” (near upper-right).

Portal tutorials

All Portal tutorials contain the date last verified to run near the top of their page.

All tutorials for the Portal aspect are kept in the dp0-2_lsst_io repository. The full history for any given Portal tutorial can be accessed via GitHub by going to the Portal tutorial of interest (e.g., the beginner Portal tutorial), and clicking on “history” (near upper-right).
