I installed today a clean installation of the latest SVN version with
both Hebrew and English translations (Mandriva Linux 2006.0, Apache
22.214.171.124, PHP 5.0.4, MySQL 4.0.26), and it works very good. Also, I've
installed three clean installations on the server
, and it worked good - except for the old bug,
I plan to detect and report, of stopping suddenly rebuildMessages.php in
the installation, without creating the last messages or
LocalSettings.php (I can of course copy LocalSettings.php from the upper
text, and the messages work also if their MediaWiki page is not exist
yet). But that is an old bug, was exist also in 1.5.3.
One request - please fix
for that release,
because it's an annoying bug, and it now has an updated, simple patch.

Before I release a formal 1.6.0, I'd like if a few people would quickly test
installation of the current snapshot.
Generally 1.6 is working quite nice on our own servers, but the installation and
updater code might not be as well exercised. I've done a few basic smoke tests
on my own, but a few more under different conditions might be wise before we
make a fuss about The Big Release.

Release notes (not finalized):
As a reminder, we're planning to start on a quarterly snapshot release schedule;
about every three months we'll take what's currently running, branch it off and
release it. Security updates will continue to be made on those release branches
for some time, but feature development and non-essential bugfixes generally will
go on the mainline and be available in the next quarterly release.
So 1.7 is tentatively scheduled for July; 1.8 for October, 1.9 (?) for January, etc.
