1.21wmf4 deployed to all WMF wikis

2012-11-28[edit]

We rolled out 1.21wmf5 to the non-Wikipedia sites today, after a brief reversion and re-deployment to fix breakage in how we were displaying some styling (details). We are on track to deploy 1.21wmf5 to English Wikipedia on Monday, December 3.

2012-11-30[edit]

On Friday, 30 November, we will probably revert the most recent changes in LabeledSectionTransclusion, because of performance issues we discovered this week. This will affect all non-Wikipedia sites and may affect how templates and transclusions are displayed; if you changed pages to accommodate the LabeledSectionTransclusion changes, you may want to undo those changes on Friday. We are on track to deploy 1.21wmf5 to English Wikipedia on Monday, 3 December.

2012-11-monthly[edit]

Wikimedia engineers deployed 1.21wmf3 and 1.21wmf4 to all Wikimedia sites, and began deploying 1.21wmf5 (with a momentary breakage). These updates included many significant improvements, including one-click (AJAX) patrolling, for both new page and diff patrol, and a Template Sandbox, which lets users preview changes to a template by previewing an example page where it's used.

2012-12-monthly[edit]

We continued the bi-weekly deployment cycle, deploying MediaWiki 1.21wmf5 and 1.21wmf6. We stopped deployments at the end of the month due to the holidays, restarting the 1.21wmf7 cycle on January 2.

2013-01-monthly[edit]

MediaWiki 1.21wmf7 and 1.21wmf8 were deployed in January on a modified schedule, due to holidays and because of the data center migration. Deployments have returned to their usual fortnightly schedule.

2013-02-monthly[edit]

Deployments of 1.21wmf9 and 1.21wmf10 went to production as scheduled with mininal issue.

2013-03-monthly[edit]

1.21wmf11 and 1.21wmf12 were deployed to Wikimedia sites in March. We created the REL1_21 branch on March 25, with the goal of a release candidate at the end of the month.

2013-04-monthly[edit]

The 1.21 deployment cycle to Wikimedia wikis is complete, and the MediaWiki 1.21 tarball is being prepared for release, with a target release date of May 15. Mark Hershberger recently released MediaWiki 1.21rc4.
