July 2020 product updates
Access to our legacy UI will be removed on August 14, 2020
Thank you to everyone who has posted, tweeted, and completed UX sessions with us as we built our new UI. Over the past few months, we’ve shipped a number of improvements to our new UI, including a cross-project view at the pipelines level, type-to-search filtering, and more. With these improvements, we are ready to advance into our pipelines-based future and on August 14th, we will shut down access to the old UI.
We’re going to continue making UX improvements, and we’re confident they’ll help you ship code better and faster. Read our announcement for more information.
Configuration validation update
As of July 7th, 2020, we’ve begun work to strengthen our 2.1 configuration for step validation in jobs to provide more informative error output. See specific changes in this article along with examples.
1-click project setup
You can now commit config directly from the Project Set-Up page to your repo with 1-click. The same config can also be downloaded and committed manually.
