Description

The obstacle in making people well informed is that most users are not paying attention to the About page, especially if an update was automatically made or someone else is making it for them. Or even if they saw this page, imagine: If I have just updated my site to the latest version, my first priority - to go and check if everything is working and all this useful information including the message about contribution will never catch my attention again, if everything is fine I will go to do what I was about to do before this urge to update.

The desired solution - to make the Dashboard page each time a bit different and interesting, alternative and more simple solution — a widget to Dashboard with a very small piece about a new version with a call to action to read more.
