Hello all,

I would like to announce the release of MediaWiki Language Extension
Bundle 2015.10. This bundle is compatible with MediaWiki 1.24.x and
MediaWiki 1.25.x releases.

Next MLEB is expected to be released in 3 months. We are trying less
frequent releases due to low number of changes per month in the
included extensions. If there are major changes or important bug
fixes, we will do intermediate release. Please give us your feedback
at [[Talk:MLEB|https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:MLEB]].
