Latest tech news from the Wikimedia technical community. Please tell other users about these changes. Not all changes will affect you. Translations are available.

Recent changes

  • You can show Special:RecentChanges on a page by using {{Special:RecentChanges}}. You can now use tag filters by using {{Special:RecentChanges/tagfilter=tagname}}[1]
  • The notification badge is coloured if you have notifications. When you check the notification the badge will now turn grey on all wikis instead of just the local one. [2]
  • Colours used in the Wikimedia wikis' main interface changed slightly. This is to make them easier to see for readers and editors with reduced eyesight. [3]

Changes this week

  • Hidden HTML comments will be more visible when you edit with the visual editor. <!-- You write hidden HTML comments like this. --> [4]
  • Octicons-sync.svg The new version of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and from 11 October. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 12 October. It will be on all wikis from 13 October (calendar).


Future changes

  • Language converter syntax will soon no longer work inside external links. Wikitext like http://-{;;}- must be replaced. You will have to write -{zh-cn: ; zh-hk: ; zh-tw: }- instead. This only affects languages with Language Converter enabled. Examples of such languages are Chinese and Serbian. [5]
