Hello mobile wikimedians,

In late December the Foundation's iOS team announced[1] a public beta of a major overhaul[2] of the iOS Wikipedia app. Today we delivered what we hope will be a final beta before launch, and are primarily in bug fix and visual touches mode.

If you would like to participate as a beta tester, it is NOT TOO LATE. Please sign-up here if interested:

If you have tried a previous beta (thanks), now would be a great time to update to the latest version.

And last but not least, if you have feedback you can provide it via this form:

In our IRC channel on freenode at #wikimedia-ios or on our project talk page[3]

Or just send me an email!

Thanks to all the code contributors, bug filers, testers and anyone who's helped make the app better. 

Prior to release I will send more info to this list about the feedback we've received that we were not able to act on, and future features and improvements based on that feedback.
