Description (last modified by johnjamesjacoby)

Right now, the WordPress "Welcome" page/tab currently repeats nearly the same text 7 times in a row.

The pattern is basically:

Version %number% addressed %number% bugs. For more information, see %link%.

The repetition is exacerbated by there being 7 minor releases in the 4.9 major branch, but considering this page is the first thing people see after upgrading, I think this can be communicated better.

Screenshot imminent.

Very good point here @johnjamesjacoby. I'm going to discuss with @melchoyce as she usually leads the about page stuff and see if we can make this better :)

I personally could see minor updates having their own tab, and I don't think we should keep mentioning the full version number in the intro to that version, WordPress 4.9 smoothed your design workflow, not WordPress 4.9.7.

Good to note that to do anything meaningful with this, we should probably distinguish between updated_major and updated_minor.

I'm not super keen on adding another tab — what if we had some sort of collapsable/expandable "show changelog" that displayed this information better?

I don't think we should keep mentioning the full version number in the intro to that version, WordPress 4.9 smoothed your design workflow, not WordPress 4.9.7.
