  • You will be able to read but not to edit the wikis for up to an hour on October 27 around 14:00 (UTC). It will probably be shorter than an hour. [1]
  • Last week, links to “diffs” from mobile watchlists and recentchanges were linking to page-revisions instead of diffs. This has now been fixed. [2]

Changes later this week

  • There is no new MediaWiki version this week.

Future changes

  • Since the introduction of the interface administrators user group in 2018, administrators couldn’t view the deleted history of CSS/JS pages. Now they can. [3]
  • There was a problem with the Change Tags. The software would apply the “Reverted” tag to any page actions such as page-protection changes if they came directly after a reverted edit. This has now been fixed for new edits. [4]
  • The Reply tool will be offered as an opt-in Beta Feature on most Wikipedias in November. Another announcement will be made once the date is finalized. [5]
