Summary of changes and improvements in R5

As of 2022, CSC Notebooks runs version R5 of Pebbles software. Compared to R4:

  • User interface has similar functionality but is greatly improved.
  • Environments/blueprints are now called applications.
  • Applications are arranged in workspaces. Workspaces are closely related to groups in the previous version, but come with additional features. Workspaces also have lifetime.
  • Workspaces have a shared folder for sharing files with members.
  • Workspace members also have a dedicated my-work folder to save their course work between sessions.
