- Continuing notification work on:
- Special page released to explain how Notifications is configured: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:DisplayNotificationsConfiguration . There is also a related breaking change to a configuration variable. We took care of it for BounceHandler, which seemed to be the only affected WMF-deployed extension. But let me know if anything weird happens with notifications.
- Bundling refactoring
- New MVC structure
- Cross-wiki notifications coming by default in two weeks.
- Added Vagrant roles for GlobalBlocking and TorBlock. Changed merged Monday to have GlobalBlocking return a Block object so the information is more machine-readable.
- Continuing notification work on:

- cxserver service can read config from cxserver repo, so updating new languages/MT pairs are easier now.
