Today we’re shipping new user profile pages.
We wanted the new profile pages to feel more personal and less like another dashboard. We’re using larger, Retina-friendly avatars on the new pages, so if you’re still rocking a low-res Gravatar, now would be a great time to update it.
Repositories and Public Activity listings are now rendered on two different tabs so they aren’t as cramped. This gave us room to show larger Octicons alongside each item.
On the Repositories tab, searching and filtering tools are more prominent and the repository participation graphs now appear in the background for each repo.
The Public Activity feed uses a similar layout, but since not all entries are equally important (e.g. pushing a commit is more important than following another user), we’re rendering “minor” events as smaller single lines.
Your profile page has always been about you. Now it’s a prettier you.
