I see there is a tab on the new control panel for news updates, but there is no content. Am I missing something? Any ideas?
Unless they Follow you, no. And I think, if you've re-posted the story as an Edit, even if they follow you, they won't get notified, because it's not a "New" story. It's just updated text of a previously published story. You could update your Profile to say you've done an edit - that at least would be tagged to anyone who Follows you as a writer.
Which is why it's a bit of waste of time when people fuss with existing stories - you're probably the only person who even knows. If someone liked the original story, there's no real reason why they'd want to read a revision; and if someone didn't like the original, they're not going to bother with a revision, regardless.
Short answer, only people who wander by in future will read the latest version.
