Is it normal that a namespace has been added to the XML answer of the API with MW 1.18 ?
I was quite busy lately, so I may have missed the announcement about this.

It means that answers from MW 1.18 are not compatible with answers from previous versions.
How can we keep our tools working with both 1.18 and previous versions ?
