Release Notes for 5/2/2012

We deployed another release yesterday. Thanks for the great feedback so far on our new look! We’ve been reacting to a bunch of the issues that people have found and will continue to tweak and refine our design. Please keep the feedback coming! Here are the notes for this release:

Fixes: User Interface and Formatting

  • We took a pass through the text and font in various places to increase the contrast between the foreground and background colors. Let us know if this is an improvement or if there are other areas where the contrast is still too small.
  • Re-styled various pages to better fit the new UI theme.
  • Fixed an issue where the site survey was transparent.
  • Fixed an issue where tables in wikis/documentation lost their borders and could extend beyond their intended boundary.
  • Fixed the formatting of the Discussion List header.
  • Fixed an issue in Internet Explorer where long descriptions on forks would extend beyond their intended boundary.
  • Fixed an issue on the forks list page where the pagination of forks overlapped the filter for setting the number of viewable forks.
  • Fixed an issue where long usernames would appear cut off in discussion threads.

Fixes: Functionality

  • Fixed an issue where the My Subscriptions filter for discussions was not working as intended.
  • Fixed an issue where clicking on a commit when browsing the source code changes in a fork was not working.
  • Fixed an issue where adding ClickOnce releases was not working as intended.
  • Fixed an issue where tags for open positions were not working as intended.
  • We removed the unintentional ability to insert javascript into the discussion list details for project owners. While the results of what users were doing with it were neat, we want to make sure that users can do this type of customization in a supported manner that doesn’t require users to jump through hoops with javascript and DOM manipulation.

    oh nice, you create issues, and then fix them ;} make download button big, then 'fix' it by making it even bigger, and then make it small again, after a year of complains… yes good strategy, keep busy ;}

  2. B33Rbaron says:

    You have to decrease the width of the right panel. Did the download button get bigger again?

  3. Selormey Paul says:

    This is site is simply becoming useless. Trying to get to and click "Get Help" at the bottom and the useless stream keeps scrolling.

    Who really decides these useless choices?

  4. Selormey Paul says:

    Trying to manage developer team and developers accounts are disabled, you cannot click or edit them.

    Nothing on the site is accessable to me.  All projects have links that go nowhere.  All I get is internet security warnings.

    Please fix the alt text for the graphic representing the current project that the user is viewing and which appears at the top of the project's homepage. Currently the alt text for example, for ASP.NET NVC reads "alt=ASP.NET MVC / Web API / Web Pages". Removes these &#47s please

    The search button used for performing searches on projects' wikis is not labeled for accessibility.
