- The www.wikibooks.org and www.wikiquote.org portal pages now use an automated update system. Other project portals will be updated over the next few months. 
- Last week, some wikis were in read-only mode for a few minutes because of an emergency switch of their main database (targeted wikis). 
Changes later this week
- The new version of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 26 July. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 27 July. It will be on all wikis from 28 July (calendar).
- The external link icon will change slightly in the skins Vector legacy and Vector 2022. The new icon uses simpler shapes to be more recognizable on low-fidelity screens. 
- Administrators will now see buttons on user pages for “Change block” and “Unblock user” instead of just “Block user” if the user is already blocked. 
- The next open meeting with the Web team about Vector (2022) will take place tomorrow (26 July).
