As per the MediaWiki version lifecycle,[1] I would like to announce the
formal end of life (EOL) of MediaWiki 1.34 as of today, Monday November 30,

This means that MediaWiki 1.34 will no longer receive maintenance or
security backports. It is therefore strongly discouraged that you continue
to use it.

It is recommended to upgrade to MediaWiki 1.35, the current Long Term
Support (LTS) version which is not due to become EOL until September 2023.
The legacy Long Term Support version of MediaWiki, MediaWiki 1.31, is older
and downgrading is not supported.

MediaWiki 1.35 bumps the required PHP version from 7.2.9 in 1.34 (which is
unsupported upstream), to PHP 7.3.19 or later.
