New Insights page displays performance breakdown

The page also includes an aggregated view from the project level. From here, click through to a new project detail page, which features project-specific usage and success metrics, in addition to multi-branch filtering.

We’ve also created new documentation for Insights, including a glossary of metrics, details about our data partnerships, and the Insights API. Our new doc on using Test Insights is helpful in understanding performance summary, as well as your top 10 most failed and slowest running tests.

New Android and PostgreSQL convenience images

We invite you to preview our next-generation Android and PostgreSQL convenience images. The new Android Docker image will offer both Java 11 as well as Java 8, and the new PostgreSQL image is built on our next-gen architecture. Both will offer better scaling, more efficient caching, and increased reliability, resulting in faster build times.
