Several new features have been released to improve the user experience when setting up configurations.
We have shipped a configuration sandbox so you can get immediate feedback while building your configuration. In this new experience, you can see the effect of your configuration change in a sandbox environment and offer corrections in the context of CircleCI configuration to get up and running faster.
Guide me - with orbs
We know users enjoy using orbs, therefore, we have made it easier to use and build a configuration with orbs. For new users, you will be able to walk through a series of steps that will take you through constructing a configuration using orbs.
Project setup for users w/existing configurations
We have made it easier for users who are ready to go and just want to build their projects on CircleCI. With this update, users now have the option to directly commit from any branch.
