I wanted to let you know that the schedule for the deployment of
VisualEditor has been changed, to give communities more time to
prepare and adapt to this alternative editing interface.
Here is the new schedule:
* Wednesday July 24: VisualEditor will be available for all logged-in
users on de, es, fr, he, it, nl, pl, ru, and sv.wikipedia
* Monday, July 29: VisualEditor will be available for all users
(logged-in and unregistered) on those wikis.
* Development and bug fixing will slow down around Wikimania (first
half of August), because many engineers and technical employees will
be traveling and attending the conference.
* VisualEditor will be made available on the other Wikipedia wikis
(except those in languages that the software doesn't support yet, like
Chinese) after Wikimania.
By decoupling the deployment for logged-in and unregistered users, we
hope to give communities more time to adapt, update documentation, add
TemplateData, and report issues.
Please spread the news to your home wikis :)
