As part of the landing page revamp I’ll also be creating a new version of the “Last Updated” and “Latest Apps” sections.
Changes I propose:
- They will be renamed “Updated apps” and “New apps”. These are clearer to understand.
- No apps can appear on both lists. It just looks awful. An app will either be considered New or Updated. An app will only be listable as “new” if (EDIT/CUT: see even better/simpler algorithm below)
- New apps will not require a “What’s New” database entry, as they currently do.
- All apps will be tested for publishable_to_web_widget()? Some anti-features will preclude apps from being considered “publishable”. Those anti-features may include, “Weak security signature” or “Known security vulnerability”. For updated apps, the “What’s New” entry will continue to be necessary.
Any additional points before I move forward with this?
I intend to update the old widget to use this new algorithm, as well as introduce a completely new widget, for the landing page revamp.
