New pages is a special page that lists recently created pages in reverse order of creation, with creation date and time, current size, user who created the page, and first edit summary. It also provides links to patrol these new pages when that feature is enabled.

This feature is accessible at Special:NewPages. The page results are not adjustable in the Preferences.

The ability to filter by user was added in bugzilla:6448.
