New release landing page

A new and fully redesigned user experience is available for release landing page in VSTS. To use this page, you simply need to switch it on using one of the on-screen prompts, or from the user profile Previews panel.

Highlights

Active tab

The Active tab shows a list of release definitions, and contains links to create or import a definition, edit the selected definition, and create a release.

Use the drop-down menu to create a draft release, or to delete, clone, or export the selected release definition.

Search for definitions if you have many in your list, or make it easy to select regularly used definitions by adding them to your list of favorites...

... or use the filter options to show the required subset of definitions.

Use the drop-down menu to open a release and see the pipeline, abandon an executing release, delete a release, or to retain a release indefinitely.

All definitions tab

The All definitions tab shows all your release definitions as a folder tree. Create folders and set permissions at folder level. Use the drop-down menu to create a release or work with the selected definition.

Because this is currently a preview, expect to see changes to the features and layout as development of the page continues.
