I'm happy to report that we just released Notifications on the German and
Italian Wikipedias today!
This is an important milestone for all of us, because it marks the
successful completion of Echo's first release, now that Notifications have
been deployed on over 800 different sites worldwide. (1)
This final release on German and Italian wikis was pushed back so that
their communities could discuss and better prepare for this new tool. They
now have both Echo and Thanks extensions enabled -- and development has
started for a special FlaggedRevs notification, which will give more
positive feedback for user contributions on the German Wikipedia.
If you are active in either community, we invite you to check that
Notifications work for you (be sure to enable all notifications in your
preferences before you test). We also encourage you to participate in the
discussions on these sites, if you are fluent in German or Italian. (2) (3)
I would like to give special thanks to Denis Barthel, Jan Eissfeldt and
Erica Litrenta for spearheading this final outreach, as well as to community
members se4598, TMg and Nemo -- and to developers Benny Situ, Kunal Mehta
and Bartosz Dziewoński for all your fine work in improving this tool and
bringing it to your communities!
Going forward, any new features or notifications will be developed by the
teams and communities that need them. We are really happy to have provided
this much-needed platform for supporting more productive collaborations on
It's been a true pleasure working with each of you on this project. I look
forward to seeing it grow over time, as I switch my focus to developing new
multimedia tools (4) for our users. :)
