Description

The full design page is at What's New Feature Design.

Goal

Create a simple, modern interface for the new What's new feature.

The Item in the repeater 

Note that the following versions work for the MVP and for the final version which will have the section in the Drawer Menu like in GitLab.

Observation: the "new tab" icon from the external link class doesn't work for me, but it should, otherwise.

Updated (after forum discussion)

Image requirements

For the first version, I believe that images that have a pretty small height compared to their width are better. A good size ratio for them could be one like social media covers (3:1) with a minimum of 783 x 261 px. They can have the height even smaller than this, the width is the one that is gonna affect the design if it's small.

Default image

For the first version:
