Overview of published pages vs drafts
Currently, there is no overview available to differentiate published pages from draft versions in the Modern Pages library.
Upon accessing the library, a list of pages is shown but there is no way to see which pages have no published version or have an updated version still in draft.
The only way to see if a page is in a draft state is to open the page and verify if the "publish" button is shown or not.
This is very time-consuming for communication sites where pages are updated frequently.
@Cristian Floristean: thanks, this worked nicely.
@Dan: by default our Site Pages library have versioning on. Not sure if yours do? With that on I was able to add the Version column through the full edit view (Edit Current View), although not via the front-end edit view (Add a column > Show/Hide Columns).
Perhaps I'm missing something, Christian, but there's no version column available with SharePoint online. You can access the version on a file by file basis, but not for a list of pages. The lack of this functionality is very challenging for us.

Found a way - Add a new column Version. All drafts will have a version bellow 1.0.
