Pulse 3.0 Alpha

With great pleasure I can announce the very first build of Pulse 3.0 is now available from our Alpha Program page! Although this build is very much incomplete and unstable, this is a huge milestone after months of work in both the back and front ends of Pulse.

As this is a larger release we’ve made the choice to release earlier in the cycle than we otherwise would, for a couple of reasons:

  • To show the massive progress that has already been achieved.
  • To solicit feedback about the all-new administration UI (in time to apply said feedback before feature freeze).

We know from previous feedback that the new UI will address some pain points, mainly around quickly navigating and understanding your configuration in a large setup. We’ve also taken advantage of modern browser features to fix clunky corners: e.g. proper history integration and drag-and-drop reordering (no more clickety-click!). With such major changes, though, we’re always keen to hear what you think — good or bad — so we can keep on the right track.

So please do find the time to download and play with an alpha build, then get in touch with us via support email. We’ll be iterating fast on this release stream now, so expect to see updates about regular builds with new UI features each time. Happy building!
