  • Timeline group - a new component suitable for displaying timeline or process content. This is available on standard content pages. 
  • News landing page - blank alt text automatically added to smaller article cards
  • News listing page, events listing - 'previous' text darkened to ensure sufficient colour contrast
  • Sitemap - added /news-archive section, in preparation for moving older news content over to this section

  • Breadcrumb - now displayed on all pages, even if these are not included in the menu
