On some of my root categories I want to include a list of the new added products to the specific category you’re looking at. I have made a static block and found this code

{{block type="catalog/product_new" name="home.catalog.product.new" alias="product_homepage" template="catalog/product/new.phtml"}}

It does show new products however its shows the sites global new added products which aren’t necessarily within the specific category.

Is there a way to make it only show products that have been added to either the main category or its sub categories?

As an option you may consider Improved Sorting extension and set sorting by newest as default.
