Bugs, Repairs, and Internal Operational News

By Aude and X!, 24 January, 2009

This is a summary of recent (as in, since the last technology report was written) 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 1.24wmf22 (e665ae6), 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

Other news

  • A new server, donated by Sun Microsystems, has been installed at the Tampa facility for the toolserver. It will initially serve as a cache for WikiMiniAtlas, making the tool faster for users in North America, and may eventually be used to take additional load off of toolserver machines in Amsterdam.

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.
