New Beta Feature: Blender News 📰

(Bart Veldhuizen) #1

I just released ‘Blender News’ as a beta feature. You’ll find it in the top navigation:

  • Clicking on the link will open a dropdown with the latest BlenderNation news.
  • The list is scrollable and contains 10 stories.
  • A notification icon will show you the number of new stories in the list.
  • The list will update in the background every 5 minutes. If you leave your window open, the counter will update if a new story is published.
  • Supports both the light and dark theme.
  • Hat tip to @cgslav for helping me with the HTML/CSS for this :bowing_man:

Please post any feedback or bugs here, thanks!

Works great now. Over all my browsers and OS.
One small thing is Chromium under Linux. It doesn’t allways regain focus when the mouse enters it. Like only 8 out of 10 times. But since it’s working on all other browsers and in Windows, I believe it’s Chromium fault.
