I've been asked to upgrade a very, very old wiki : it was version
1.25.6. I decided to do it step by step, ie release by release.
I carefully backup-ed the database between each iteration, and ran
Everything went fine until 1.34.4, when the vast majority of links were
broken (Page does not exist yet)
There were some stopper between 1.33 and 1.34 ? I read the release
notes, update.php is intended to do the right job
Thanks for help,

Hello. Can please someone help me?
I have installed Mediawiki 1.38.2 for my site www.wikimilano.it
today, same problem with different pc and users, when trying to login or
logout, doesn't work and say "invalid csrf token"
This is a quick note to highlight that in six weeks' time, the REL1_39
branch will be created for MediaWiki core and each of the extensions and
skins in Wikimedia git, with some (the 'tarball') included as sub-modules
of MediaWiki itself. This is the first step in the release process for
MediaWiki 1.39, which should be out in November 2022, approximately
six months after MediaWiki 1.38.
The branches will reflect the code as of the last 'alpha' branch for the
release, 1.39.0-wmf.28, which will be deployed to Wikimedia wikis in the
week beginning 12 September 2022 for MediaWiki itself and those extensions
and skins available there.
After that point, patches that land in the main development branch of
MediaWiki and its bundled extensions and skins will be slated for the
MediaWiki 1.40 release unless specifically backported.
If you are working on a new feature that you wish to land for the release,
you now have a few days to finish your work and land it in the development
branch; feature changes should not be backported except in an urgent case.
If your work might not be complete in time, and yet should block release
for everyone else, please file a task against the `mw-1.39-release` project
If you have tickets that are already tagged for `mw-1.39-release`, please
finish them, untag them, or reach out to get them resolved in the next few
We hope to issue the first release candidate, 1.39.0-rc.0, two weeks after
the branch point, and if all goes well, to release MediaWiki 1.39.0 a few
weeks after that.

I used to announce every new episode of my MediaWiki podcast here, but I
stopped doing it about a year ago. Maybe I'll start again - but I thought
the latest episode was especially noteworthy, because it's with two of the
developers of Abstract Wikipedia (Adam Baso and Julia Kieserman), an
extremely interesting project:
There's no shortage of other interesting recent episodes, though - with WMF
developers like Alex Hollender, Tyler Cipriani and Marshall Miller, people
representing organizations like the U.S. National Gallery of Art and Space
Force, and others. You can listen to all the episodes here:

the API action feedrecentchanges
(https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Feedrecentchanges) returns a feed
with HTML diffs, including timestamps. By default, these timestamps
seem to be renderd as UTC. Is there any way to change the timezone?
E.g., by passing a timezone argument to the API?
