November 2016 Product Updates: All in on the New UI…

Our new UI is now the default

Scalyr's New UI

We flipped the switch, and our new UI is now the default. The original UI will still be available for a while, but to access it, you’ll have to click on the settings menu (upper-right corner of the window) and choose “Flip To Classic UI”.

If there’s a reason you prefer our original UI, please let us know! We’re working hard to make this an easy transition.

September 2016 Product Updates: The New UI Gets Even More Powerful…

We’ve added a lot of features to the New UI this month and we’re excited to share them with you. If you haven’t given it a try, now is a great time to join the large body of Scalyr users who have switched over.

New UI to become default on October 10th

 

Last year we began a ground-up rewrite of the Scalyr interface. Our goal was to preserve the speed and power that made people love Scalyr, while making it easier to learn, quicker to use, and – let’s face it – easier on the eyes.

We’ve been testing this new UI (appropriately dubbed….the New UI) over the past few months and steadily making improvements along the way. We’re now ready to jump into the deeper end of the pool:

We’ll be flipping the switch to make the New UI the default choice starting on October 10th. (Note – The original UI will still be available for a while, but you’ll have to enable it on a per-session basis.)

If there’s a reason you prefer our original UI or are hesitant to switch, please let us know! We’re working hard to make this an easy transition.
