Bugs, Repairs, and Internal Operational News

By ais523, 26 May, 2008

This is a summary of recent technology and site configuration changes that affect the English Wikipedia. Note that not all changes described here are necessarily live as of press time; the English Wikipedia is currently running version 1.25wmf3 (bc55fd3), and changes to the software with a version number higher than that will not yet be active. Configuration changes and changes to interface messages, however, become active immediately.

Fixed bugs

  • Attempting to delete a redirect to an image no longer deletes the image instead. (r35113, bug 14199)
  • The new-messages bar is no longer triggered by the deletion of a user's talk page. (r35133, bug 14077)
  • When the preference which determines the maximum number of changes to show in the watchlist is left blank, it now uses a sensible default rather than 0. (r35134, bug 14100)
  • A URL-encoded link in an edit summary now links to the correct target. (r35197, bug 14140)
  • When a bureaucrat renames themself, the page-moves that move the pages in their userspace to their new username are now attributed to their new username, rather than their old username. (r35211, bug 14219)
