Hello mobile Wikimedians,
We've just pushed an updated beta of the 5.4.0 version of the Wikipedia app
for iOS. This beta is a release candidate that we hope to publish to the
app store early next week.
This updated beta finishes our work on our new Login system (including two

and in the meantime wanted to get the improvements to log in and other bug
fixes into our users hands without further delay. So, if you liked Places
