Redesign the UI
The structure and layout of pages since the new material-design UI has been horrible, so much so that we are seriously considering move away from Octopus Deploy after using it for several years.
The contrast of pages suck, blue text on white background makes it difficult to read.
Every config/admin option has been moved and now harder to find, that coupled with the bad contrast makes it impossible to find options at a glance.
Some elements have a fixed width, which results in text being cut off making it unreadable.
The material design concepts are horrible and includes no visual cues. How do I discern a button from text?... I have to hover/click it to find out. At least add some drop-shadows to buttons.
I don't need or want a fancy UI for doing deploys, I'd much prefer something that is not flashy but is functional and easy to use/navigate. The new UI feels like a step backwards compared to the previous UI.
Please allow to ability to create/change skins of the UI so we can at least create a sensible skin ourselves.
Previously when a new version of Octopus Deploy was available the notification would provide a link to the appropriate changelogs. Why is this no longer the case?
Thanks for your feedback. We will be looking at providing better usability around contrast in a future release.
