Usability and UI enhancements

This release introduces updated user interface navigation and many usability enhancements.

Enhancement Description
Navigation to Spaces and My Work

The top navigation has a new fresh look. It includes breadcrumbs to reflect your current location in PulseUno, while the Spaces and My Work areas have moved:

Audit history

PulseUno now maintains the history of configuration changes for an entity, such as space, product, or stream/branch. To view an entity's history, you need owner or administrator permissions.

When inspecting test results in a chain run, you can now use new toggle filtering options to fine-tune the displayed data.
