These are known issues in the current version of 1.22 that we plan to have fixes for in 1.22.7:

  • Problems with Postgres support:
  • Problems with Oracle support:
    • bug 68874 PHP Warning: strpos() expects parameter 1 to be string, object given in DatabaseOracle.php - Status: NEW

  • MediaWiki installer displays broken links
    • [[phabricator:TExpression error: Unrecognized punctuation character "#".|bug 43817#C6]] - Status: PATCH_TO_REVIEW
  • Installer should enable img_auth.php for private wikis
    • bug 35238: This is a feature request and is inappropriate for a point release. It should be requested for 1.23.
  • Job queue handling on each request changed, and it wasn't mentioned in release notes
  • Job queue on page request does not work for shared code (wiki farms), because it doesn't pass additional required parameters to runJobs.php to identify the wiki that's running the job
  • Uncommitted DB writes (transaction from DatabaseBase::query)
  • Mobile front end doesn't use the SkinAfterBottomScripts hook. - Deprecate Skin::bottomScripts(), move use of SkinAfterBottomScripts hook to OutputPage::getBottomScripts()
