Changes[edit | edit source]

Bug fixes[edit | edit source]

  • Removed all usages of "class_alias" php method which were causing problems with hhvm. We should be able to re-enable the hhvm beta feature on Wikidata.
  • Various performance optimizations.
  • Don't show dead edit links in diff/old revisions. bugzilla:72177
  • Display full year if precision is to high. bugzilla:67604, bugzilla:71289, bugzilla:71956
  • Fix for edit conflict issue when editing multiple things in the "other languages" section. bugzilla:72020
  • Fix entity deletion updates for properties, which cause problems like labels to not be removed from the wb_terms table, thus not allowing to create another property with that label. bugzilla:71914

Other[edit | edit source]

  • Initial usage tracking code introduced (but not used yet). This includes a new table for client wikis, which can be created.

Deployment notes[edit | edit source]

  • We can create usage tracking table on client wikis. It is not used yet so no issue for it to be there and will be nice to have it there when we do introduce code that uses it.
