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 1.27.0-wmf.1 (c606878), 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.
Upload warnings about changing spaces to underscores in file names have been removed. (r45676, bug 16968)
An option has been added to user preferences to hide patrolled pages from the new page list. (r45857, bug 16957)
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.
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.
