Available today, all our users have access to CircleCI’s new look. We’ve been working with our beta users on fine tuning our design over the past several weeks. We’ve listened to your requests and tried our best to address the most important items first. Thank you so much for providing us with great feedback and helping us improve our product. We’ll keep on working to improve your experience with CircleCI.
For those who tried our beta, the new look should feel smoother. You’ll notice we added back the function of collapsible repos in the left column. We heard lots of input from our beta users around our use of fonts, colors and whitespace.
So for those who are saying hello to our new look for the first time, here’s what’s new.
What’s New: The Highlights
We know you rely heavily on the build list and build detail page, and our efforts and improvements have given these pages higher priority during our design process. Here are the key highlights of our new look:
New build list shows user repo/branch names, GitHub avatars, pull requests, SHA, started at time, build duration and logs. Users can now click on PR or SHA to see the changes directly on GitHub. Added functionality to the build list page includes the ability to cancel a build at any time for any queued or running item, even if it’s not displaying the full queue.
The build details page is improved, featuring more prominent context and actions around test failures so you can easily see what’s broken and spend your valuable time on what’s important–getting a green build.
New redesigned branch picker accommodates long repo and branch names. Users can choose between ‘Mine’ and ‘All’ and ‘Recent’ or ‘By Repo’ filters to view the repos or branches that they are interested in.
New build output page is full width which makes it easy to read. Commit ID’s are located on the top to help users see what changes are in the current build.
For easier navigation a new sticky context bar has been added. Users can view which page they currently are on and click on the context bar to navigate around the site.
We are really proud of our new look, and want to continue to deliver a product you love. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you think!
