The first archived copy of the site with the new layout in the Internet Archive is from 2018-07-19 and the last archived copy of the "beige prison colour" (as you so poetically put it) is from 2018-07-18. They don't say a lot more in the weekly update that announced the new design, so I can't tell you more than that. However! A really cool thing and the reason why I'm answering to this is that the site run on a cluster of RPi 4s (making use of the RPi 4's ability to boot over network and the PoE shield).
TKS AC, according to the update this happened sometime in July. I only ever visit the OS repository. That section must have been phased in lately. I just noticed the change.
colporteur I noticed the same thing about the raspi-config yesterday. Since I was trying out the new website and the SD card imager, I didn't pay attention to the OS release date. August 20th. I knew it had to be recent as the RPi Model A I was playing with only took a couple of hours to apt-get upgrade instead of all night.
The beige prison colour found at raspberrypi.org has been removed with a site face lift. When did this happen?
I went looking for the latest update to the Raspberry Pi OS and discovered to my surprise much of the site has changed. This is unnerving. It calls into question whether I am at the right place. It also forces me to read and think in order to navigate the pages to find what I desire. Anyone have any insight into this refresh?
A similar question regarding raspi-config. I used it recently and found hey the menus have changed, I think? Again it causes me to pause. The change forces me to lay down new synaptic paths to find the knowledge I thought I knew. When did raspi-config get a face lift?
