The request is to show a/the whatsnew page to beta users coming from a previous release of beta to the next major release, in this case 72.0, happening in RC week.

The Websites team will re-purpose the content, verbatim, from the https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/70.0/whatsnew/ (lang file /firefox/whatsnew_70.lang)

The URL for WNP 70 beta is: https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/70.0beta/whatsnew/

The locales should match those of the rapid release WNP, which are as follows:

be
ca
cak
cs
cy
da
de
dsb
en-CA
en-GB
es-AR
es-ES
es-MX
eu
fa
fr
fy-NL
gn
hr
hsb
hu
ia
id
it
ka
lt
nb-NO
nl
nn-NO
pl
pt-BR
ru
sk
sl
sq
sv-SE
tr
uk
vi
zh-CN
zh-TW

To make sure I understand the request: this should be shown when updating to any 72.0 beta build, from 71.0beta or earlier, starting in a couple of weeks, is that right?

I didn't get around to this today but will look tomorrow.

The page is live at https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/72.0beta/whatsnew/all/

This page that pitches Monitor is only fully localized in English, French, and German. Other locales will fall back to the default whatsnew page that promotes Firefox for mobile.

I believe this is right but Eric, can you confirm? We should have until Monday's gtb on dec 2nd to do this if that's the case.

Jordan - that is correct, yes. Many thanks!

Eric, is there a change for 73 or do we keep showing that same page to the same locales?

Julien - sorry for not responding sooner. We'll want double check for any additions - the list will either remain the same, possibly but unlikely increase.

Which reminds me that I need to file that bug for beta 73 . . .
