Comment (by mcs):

 Kathy and I also implemented a second part to notify existing/upgraded
 users about the new location of the circuit display. We did something
 fairly simple because we are nearly out of time for the 8.0 release: we
 added an always-present banner to about:tbupdate. Also, we did this work
 as a separate set of patches in case the approach we took is not
 acceptable from a UX perspective.

 The look/styling builds upon the newly restyled about:tbupdate, so you
 will want the patch from ticket:27213#comment:4.

 There is also a Torbutton patch for the strings:

 And a tor-browser patch to add the banner:
 (like other about:tbupdate strings, there are also present in the tor-
 browser repo but they are not used if Torbutton is installed).

 One downside of this approach is that in a future release we will need to
 remove the banner from about:tbupdate, or we could add logic to not
 display the banner if updating from a recent version. For now, this is
 better than nothing. I will attach a screenshot.
