Notifying Users of Changes to Sheet

What's the best way to notify users of changes to a sheet? Let's say I add a new feature, or change an existing function. The first time a user opens that sheet, I'd like to give them a "What's New!" splash page or something. Is there a roll20/community endorsed way to do this? And maybe some nice pre-packaged code? :)

You can just add an announcement box at the top of your sheet toggled by a checkbox set to checked. Use css to show/hide content using css. Users will see the announcement when they open the sheet. Once closed it will stay unchecked/hidden unless users re-open  Either use a new checkbox attribute with each major update to force a checked/open state or implement a versioning routine that enables(value=1) the checkbox based on a newer sheet version.  Not sure if there's a simple versioning example available...

Would be a perfect addition to our Pattern Library .
