Recent Highlights[edit]

Neil Quinn is supporting the new Editing Audience Research project between Communications and Editing.

A new feature to provide filters on Recent Changes is in final testing and QA in beta labs. We hope to make it available as a Beta Feature in production next week.

You will be able to see visual diffs inside the visual editor in production this week, in an early state. We will improve and expand it in the weeks ahead.

The Linter tool, which helps editors find and highlight wikitext errors, is now available on small wikis (like MediaWiki.org – see the linting index page). We will release it to other wikis soon.

Improvements to Content Translation to replace its editor with the same platform as the visual editor are going well.

Our work on deploying Compact Language Links out of beta (T66793) have restarted. Deployments have been for all Wikivoyages except Russian, and all Wikibookses, Wikiversities, Wikinewses, Wikiquotes, and Wiktionaries, and for all Wikipedias except English and German. (T136677)

Our work to release the visual editor to all Wikipedias is now almost complete. There are now outstanding only the eight multi-script Wikipedias (including Chinese) which are technologically blocked, on which we're working with Parsing. There are also three other Wikipedias in incomplete deployment states (English, Spanish and Dutch), for which work is paused pending the new wikitext editor release, and won't resume until some point, probably in mid-2017.

Recent Highlights[edit]

Next week we expect Page Previews to be rolled out to 90% of users of italian, russian, greek, catalan, and hebrew wikis. The web team also plans to deploy new branding work to Catalan and Italian wikipedia mobile websites. It is now possible to edit the Wikidata description from the Wikipedia app in some languages in beta.
