Main Issues

Front Page

  • Fails to call to attention what's new and noteworthy in new releases.

Product Information

  • IDE is a visual tool, but features pages are text-heavy and don't leave a memorable impression.


  • Using benchmarks such as Ubuntu and Mozilla webpages, site l&f appears outdated.

Content Navigation/Structure

  • Difficulty finding relevant content quickly; a search might require multiple clicks.


  • People resources to create and update visual properties.


May 24 discussion

  • Determine best case scenarios of a redesign against possible project constraints.
