It seems Calendar has had it for much more than 1 week (though there have been multiple updates). In general, I think it is prob. pretty much up to the developers, no policy.

Having a "New Features!" notification is quite attractive to new users, as well as existing ones. Also, PWA is already out of beta, so I doubt they'll be coming up with new features on a weekly basis.

They'll probably leave it there until they've nearly got some new features ready, remove it for a week and then put it back...

I can't imagine it would be so difficult to remove the New Feature link once a person clicks on it. This way I end up clicking on it every time I log on, hoping that it changed. Gets a little annoying.

Something being there a few days or weeks is nothing.

I just wrote about the Picasa testimonials page, where the entries there are years old – they relate to having to buy Picasa, and hence are from before Google bought the company.
