Given how effective our post-download pop up is on the web site, I think that 
using our first open page to 'speak' to our users is definitely something to 
resurrect. It would be great to provide:

* a list of recent projects (as we have now)
* a list of recent blog articles from planet.qgis.org
* a list of current crowd funding projects and their funding progress
* a panel for us to directly send notifications to users e.g. 'QGIS 2.14.7 is 
out, please upgrade!'
* links for funding and sponsoring QGIS

I think it is also worth speaking to Nyall about his crowd funding experiences 
- last I chatted to him he had some doubts as to whether it is a really 
effective tool at the moment. Perhaps getting the publicity on the app opening 
view might fix that....

Regards

Tim
