  • Because of the problems with the MediaWiki version two weeks ago last week’s updates are also late. [1][2][3]

  • Recurrent item The new version of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and from 13 October. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 14 October. It will be on all wikis from 15 October (calendar).
