New platform updates - Quesed backtest etc.

I see a queued status on running a backtest. Is this new?

Also, the notebook pipeline loading function seems to have been updated with graphs and other data.

It would be nice when Quantopian makes these platform changes they would announce it to the community or did I miss something?

Hi Kamran,

The pipeline progress bars are new. I'm planning to make a post next week calling out a few updates, including the progress bar.

The queued status of a running backtest isn't new. In expectation, a backtest should only be in the queued state for a short period of time so maybe it just hasn't come up for you that often? It's also possible that we didn't use to report the queued state in the old backtest view (updated a little over a year ago now).
