This is a new Dashboard widget. This is useful if you want to publish news in your dashboard.

Is it possible to extend module to show news not only on admin dashboard, but on customer page?

A new version is on OPAR: http://opar.perl-services.de/dist/ProductNews-3.3.1

This is now for OTRS 3.3.x, the full news is shown in a dialog rather than a new page. And several other improvements.
All those changes were contributed by tto from c.a.p.e IT. Thanks!

ok, it took me a while but i finally did it :lol:

If anyone wants to display the news in the customer interface in a new tab called "News", download my attachment
it was coded to work with ProductNews-3.3.1.

Some screenshots:
Listing the news:

reading a new:

Just unzip the file and copy the kernel folder to your <OTRS_ROOT> folder. (it wont override any files of the original author)

There are no pagination and there are no plans for it :( , so in a future(when you have a lot of news), you may want to disable/delete your old news
