Well, the account creation API is still pending. If I'm lucky it'll be
merged by the 1.21 release. :P I also have a change pending that redoes the
password recovery system so that it uses tokens rather than temporary
Other than that, I'm still working on a centralized
authentication/authorization system, but I don't think it'll be ready for
this release (hopefully it can get in the next release alongside the
password hashing rewrite).

We're still a few months from a release of 1.21,

thinking about what we can tell the users of MediaWiki about it.
In that vein, what changes or features have you been working on? I'll
spend some time looking over the commit messages, but often those don't
give the sort of "big picture" that end users of MW could benefit from.
If you would rather update https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.21
yourself, feel free. Otherwise, I'll try to update that page with user
visible changes and improvements that third party users of MW could
In a side note: I'm not very good with visual presentation. If anyone
wants to take on that bit of the release notes, watch the page and chime
in where you think you can help.
