Description

When Doomsday first starts up after an upgrade, a popup should appear notifying the user of relevant changes. This would replace the need for a release note page in the wiki.

This notification would need to be dynamic, so that it would:
  • know which version the user upgraded from
  • which is the current version
  • download from the wiki all the changes fitting in this range and format them for display
This could be designed with DEW as the backend, so that each individual feature/note would have its own page in some special wiki category. Each item could have:
  • a priority level for sorting (to show the more important ones first)
  • title (single-sentence summary)
  • optionally a picture
  • short paragraph of text describing the feature (could contain links etc.)
