The Wikipedia Signpost

Bugs, Repairs, and Internal Operational News

By ais523, 23 June, 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 1.25wmf8 (9a59599), 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

New features

  • MediaWiki:upload-maxfilesize is now wrapped in a <div> with a distinct class, so it can be affected by CSS. (r36187, bug 14479)
  • Words containing apostrophes can now be accidentally linked to the word without an apostrophe by double-bracketing part of the word, e.g. [[link]]'s is now equivalent to [[link|link's]]. (Previously, this worked for letters but not for apostrophes.) (r36253, bug 468)

Ongoing news

  • Internationalisation has been continuing as normal; help is always appreciated! See mw:Localisation statistics for how complete the translations of languages you know are, and post any updates to bugzilla or use Betawiki.
