Comment (by critterverse):

 Hey all, I wanted to share some updated visuals from the
 [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/54270 About page] for this
 release. I was also under the impression that we had a consensus around
 the jazzy direction so I did some mockups to test whether we would be able
 to build this in such a way that it could be a super simple image + copy
 update for each release. I’m attaching images of the proposed template
 using the artwork from both 5.8 and 5.9 to show how this could work.

 IMO the blue/jazzy direction is more visually engaging and it would be
 nice to have a cohesive look & feel with the visuals from the About page.
 Hopefully we can still use the existing PR that @ryelle shared and just
 adjust the styling!

 One thing to mention is that I’ve replaced the line “We’ve assembled some
 links to get you started” with a link that says, “Learn more about the 5.9
 release.” Does it seem like a good idea to drive to the About page from
 here? I figure we will have a lot more descriptive text and links out to
 other resources there.

 >What about using this area to link off to user documentation about block-
 based themes, if such a page exists?
 Another option might be to hide the third category all together if a
 classic theme is active, but I have a slight preference for the above
 suggestion if we can find something to link to.
