New Refinement Configuration for SharePoint 2013

I just ran across the new refinement configuration for SharePoint 2013. I was expecting to modify the Refinement Filters XML like I did in SharePoint 2010, but was pleasantly surprised to see that Microsoft has created a nice GUI to do this for you. It can be found in the refinement web part properties. Instead of seeing the Refinement Filters XML you have a “Choose Refiners…” button. When clicked, this button opens a nice GUI that lets you manage your refinements.

I’ll need some time to play around with this new tool to see how well it works.
