    initial v1  
    1 Worth noting the updated News dashboard widget that now is capable to display "Nearby Events" merged in [40607], has just introduced a new icon to indicate external links. I think whether links open in a new window or not, this icon should be used only to visually indicate the link points to a resource other than the admin or frontend. `target="_blank"` instead, by other means, with screen reader text as done for example in [40422] and [38829]. Any thoughts welcome!
