Just wanted to introduce a new feature that I've been working on.
It's called the "Showcase Widget".
The idea is that it is like a content store type thing that shows Recently Played and Recently added items etc. all in one location.
You can access it by pressing down from a main menu item that does NOT have a submenu.
Alternatively, you can add it as a menu item from the home customisation screen -- Common > Showcase
The command is ActivateWindow(1131) so you can even map it to a button on your remote/keyboard/gamepad if you want.
It shows eight widgets which can be scrolled through. These are customisable from skin settings
Skin Settings > Home > Customise showcase widgets (scroll down to see the option).
Available on git (will be in next official repo update sometime in the next fortnight).
