New Boards Hub, Sprint 208 Update

Dan Hellem

Since the March announcement of the New Boards Hub, our team has collected a lot of your feedback. Thank you! We have been hard at work addressing the issues. Every week the experience gets better and better. The issues backlog is getting smaller, and we are getting closer to where we can enable the New Boards Hub as the primary experience. We thought it was a good time to start sharing the bugs we have fixed in the latest sprint so you can view our progress and re-test any issues you may have found in the past.

As always, if you find anything, please email me directly or post a comment below.
