I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'most recent' is the definition.

'part of' says the answer is hidden in the clue.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for new that I've seen before include "Recently made, etc" , "Modern" , "Seen for the first time" , "Unfamiliar, restored" , "Unconventional" .)
