#25022 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Feature notification after update should display only once

Description

This is certainly an edge case, but still:

After an upgrade from 3.4 > 3.6, on a site where the post editor contains several metaboxes with file upload capacity, the user will see as many "New feature" notifications as there are metaboxes. Which can be quite a lot, in a WP-as-CMS-implementation.

I would assume that each "notification type" should be displayed only once, even if several similar metabox instances are present.

  • Component changed from Warnings/Notices to Help/About
  • Keywords has-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.6.1

That's funky looking.

This is actually fairly easy to trigger in 3.6 due to the post locking pointer, if there are multiple posts being edited at the same time. This should be easy to fix, so moving to 3.6.1.

This should be simple to fix. Untested patch attached.
