For Drupal 8 we wanted to improve the workflow of the "Content Manager" page and provide a solution by this first draft wireframe proposal.

The main issues that these wireframes try to solve are the following:

  • Clearer call to action for new content creation with direct selection of content type
  • Improve the bulk operations without cluttering the page
  • Filters should be hidden on mobile view
  • Icons for published and unpublished status
  • Reduce clutter on the page by hiding the actions per content row, only becoming visible when hover on the row
  • Display the filters as textual links, instead of form dropdowns, with the same behavior.
  • Provide a indication of how many items each filter represents in the list
  • Give the user the option to show (or hide) columns other then the default columns
  • Removed the breadcrumb trail since it doesn't seem to have any purpose on this screen
  • Clear indication of the table sorting and the active sorted column

This makes a lot of sense, however for process purposes it might be better to start of this discussion in

Any reason to have this major?

Bug reports should be targeted against the 8.1.x-dev branch from now on, and new development or disruptive changes should be targeted against the 8.2.x-dev branch. For more information see the Drupal 8 minor version schedule and the Allowed changes during the Drupal 8 release cycle.
