Another product update this month!
Stack Trace Common Errors Explanations
We have aggregated the most frequently produced compiler errors students have experienced in Mimir Classroom in C, C++, Java, and Python and we have curated "plain English" explanations for these errors.
As an instructor, you'll be able to choose whether you want these explanations to be displayed or not. By default, it will be live for new assignments or projects but any live projects or assignments will not be affected.
Students will see the errors highlighted in the stack trace with a hyperlink to the explanation at the bottom of the stack trace section.
The list of errors is ever-growing as we continue to analyze students' submissions for common errors. You can access the complete list here; we want to hear from you about the explanations or any other errors you're interested in adding to the list.
We will be announcing the release of common errors at SIGCSE 2019. If you're attending the conference, stop by our booth and say hi!
