Comment on Stallion WordPress Theme Feature Requests by Mark.
Since Panda I have started to go back to my old weak posts and update and improve them. I believe a post with age has some value.
Therefore, as an added functionality to a recent articles widget could be an option to include recently modified posts. Therefore, it would spread some link benefit back to old posts you worked hard on revising and giving it some notoriety to users to let them know it has been updated.
If you want to do even more you could have a little comment bubble to the side that says ‘new’ or ‘updated’ next to each post in the widget, but it might be too much clutter. But sometimes when people have a yellow sticky note that says ‘updated’ I read it.
