I am happy to announce the first release candidate for Semantic MediaWiki 2.4.
This is a development version - do NOT use it in production.
Semantic MediaWiki 2.4 is the first feature release after SMW 2.3. It
brings new functionality, enhancements and stability improvements. Since it
is a feature release, it does not include any breaking changes.
Preliminary release notes:
This release candidate is meant to gather feedback and to allow you to do
testing against the new version. You can try out the new features on the
SMW sandbox wiki at http://sandbox.semantic-mediawiki.org
, or upgrade your
own wiki. If you find any issues, please report them on our issue tracker:
The target for the actual 2.4 release is July 3rd. You can follow the
release process in this tracking issue:
### Upgrading instructions ###
If you are using SMW via Composer, update the version in your composer.json
to "~2.4@rc" and run "composer update".
If you are using the tarballs, you can download SMW 2.4 RC1 here:
(note that we switched from SourceForge to GitHub)
More detailed upgrading instructions will be made available for the 2.4
### Help wanted ###
You can help with this release by improving the release notes. If you have
any questions, please post them on the release tracking issue.
There is also a list of issues suitable for newcomers to the project:
