we've released v0.39.0 of the OOUI library this Tuesday. It will rollout on
normal train next Tuesday, 26 May.
Highlights in this release:
- Text flow of form layouts on mobile devices was improved, surfaced
in Advanced Mobile Contributions
- Additionally this release removed deprecated icons 'beaker' and
'unTrash', both were renamed, former to 'labFlask', latter to
'restore'. Additionally 'toc' in 'icons-layout' was deprecated in this
release, as design team has decided to use 'listBullet' as unified
table of contents icon.
- Added option in PopupWidget to remove close button and add custom icon to
widget head. Thanks to volunteer contributor Sohom Datta!
- Remove `onLookupMenuItemChoose` event in LookupElement. It got deprecated
in v0.35.2. Use onLookupMenuChoose instead.
- TagItemWidget: Remove `setDisabled` function. It was deprecated in

previous occasion I saw a small number of highly hostile messages
being directed at WMF staff regarding a UI change that I thought was
reasonable. If you are a community member and something about this UI
change upsets you, please vent to me first and then after you have
finished venting you can send a calmer version of your message to

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Etherpad upgrade and a new skin
To: Wikimedia Mailing List <wikimedia-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org>

I normally don't send out emails like this when we upgrade etherpad,
but 1.8.4 (which we just upgraded to), has brought in a UI change (one
that was introduced in 1.8.3) which, in my opinion, warrants a heads
up so that people aren't caught off guard. Etherpad-lite now has had a
new skin and that's what you will experience while using it. There's
also a number of other changes, you can have a quick look at
you are interested.
