The Medium and Large Cards remain white and boxed in, whereas the small card take on the background color of the section.

Note: The Medium and Large cards were previously named Compact and Descriptive, respectively, but have been changed for clarity.

When you toggle between the Medium and Large card layouts, your description text is preserved until it is edited. This may mean that in the Medium card, your blurb has more characters than can be displayed. This will be indicated at the bottom of the Medium card. If you edit the Medium card, you have now changed the text.

What you need to do to prepare

You do not need to do anything to prepare for this update, but you may want to let your users know about this improvement.
