As the title says, a grid-view like Special:NewFiles is in MediaWiki 1.18.

So, what is needed is merging the existing code from Special:NewFiles into Special:ListFiles, using the parameter style described in bug 30608

Motivation: Support users in showing a gallery of their own recent files embedded in their user page, to motivate participation.

Background: Special:NewFiles can show the gallery, but is not embeddable. Discussion in bug 30522 concluded that rather than adding embedding to Special:NewFiles, the whole code should be merged into Special:ListFiles, ultimately making Special:NewFiles a synonym of Special:ListFiles.
