The new mega menu navigation layout is only available for horizontally oriented navigation controls and allows for a panel display of links/labels up to three levels.
The footer control is initially only available for modern pages in new and existing communication sites, a logo or title and up to 8 links or labels. Along with these updates, the content bar (also referred to as the “social bar”) – which contains the Like, Comment, View and Save for Later icons – will be docked permanently on top of the Comments section on all modern pages and news posts.
Microsoft will begin rolling this out to Targeted Release organizations in Feb 2019, and the worldwide rollout will be completed by the end of March 2019. This rollout was initially scheduled for November 2018 and was delayed until now.
Site footers are turned on in all existing and new communication sites as this feature rolls out. If you do not want the default site footer on your existing communication site, please follow instructions here for more information. You can always turn it back on whenever you need.
This is adding more options to the “change the look” settings panel that can be optionally applied by the site owner. To learn about these settings review Change the look of your SharePoint site.
