Find (CMD+F) Now Working in the New UI    

What’s New

As we build the new UI, faster page-load is important to us. We initially built the Step Output section to load with react-virtualized, meaning that only the visible rows were rendered. This allowed us to show colorized output with an even faster load/scrolling time than the old UI. In theory it was brilliant, in practice it broke the ability to use native browser search tools like CMD+F to find specific words before or after the rendered text. During user research, we watched many CircleCI users attempt to CMD+F in the Step Output, and not find what we were looking for. As a result we pulled out react-virtualized and enhanced colorized output from the step output. Color we can compromise on, usability we cannot.

Pipelines Functionality Rollout    

What’s New

From March 9, 2020, CircleCI will begin to enable pipelines for all projects. A pipeline contains all of the workflows (and the jobs inside those workflows) that CircleCI runs after a trigger on your project. A pipeline can be triggered by a pull request, a commit, or even an API call. Read more on our Discuss post.
