Subject RE: 1.0 Run Status Colors
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2016 21:12:54 GMT
I have the before/after Status Color images made up and listed in the notes on the JIRA:

The screenshots are perfect, as there is some tweaking left to be done, but it should give
a clear picture of the effect the change would have.
One issue I haven't worked out is that in some of the screenshots the "Issues" icon is the
same orange color it is in the 1.0.0 Beta.  It is supposed to be the color shown in the Process
Group/Process before/after images.

The discussion around the modernized UI goes back to start of the year.

UI changes are notoriously exciting and horrible and for each person they might feel neither,
one or both of these.

Peter: Thank you for providing the screenshot.  To help better understand your suggestion
can you show a before, after, and provide some text about the changes you'd like?

Your screenshot looks great to me but it also isn't obvious what changed.
