- 2006-06-06: Fix for XSS in 1.6 branch
- Please, add link to XSS--184.108.40.206 09:05, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
- done, thanks for this little hint :-) --:Bdk: 10:16, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
This template is currently unused on the wiki. The main page (where it used to be located) currently has its news in-line, and there is a separate News page that contains the full news history. This behaviour may change in the future.
In the meantime, it is still worth updating the page here, as people are using it for translation.

- Strike that - it is now in use again. --HappyDog 19:21, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
Meaning of icon
Currently, the icon Image:Attention niels epting.svg does not have an alternative text associated with it on the news page, and the image page does not describe what it means. I can guess that red and an exclamation mark means "danger", but shouldn't the guesswork be removed? AGrimm 15:14, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
- Added alt text "security" now. --:Bdk: 18:27, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
Hi, the date given should be 2009-07-13. Cheers --Marbot 21:22, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
Since 1.6.x is gone ...
... Main page would look nicer to have only two recent messages instead of three or four. Thus the big blank space below the download box would be avoided. Cheers --kgh 22:20, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
Release Candidate icon
- Great idea. Support --[[kgh]] 19:20, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
There is a proposal to update this News template (and therefore the mediawiki.org homepage) with broadly the same entries we are having in the MediaWiki social media channels. See the @MediaWiki timeline in identi.ca to check the kind of news we are talking about.
We could start doing this manually and if we are happy about the result we could think of a way to have it automated via RSS/Atom syndication. Please discuss in this thread.--Qgil (talk) 21:22, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
- Why not? :) However, I would keep the release news for the current stable and legacy sticky. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 23:35, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
I think it is a very bad idea to spam this page with anything beside announcements of (security) updates. The rss feed was a very convinient way to stay informed on necessary updates. But with several updates per week for other reasons, that does not work anymore. --Hendrik Brummermann (talk) 08:44, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
- Perhaps we should have a (transcluded) sub-page for just releases? Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 18:13, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
- News are news and new releases are new releases. Kghbln & Hendrik, why not improving Template:Current_versions to do exactly what you want to have?--Qgil (talk) 21:13, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Can we change the formatting from this:
The second way is easier to scan and works better when items are wrapped (since each item begins with a bullet point), plus it takes a little less space horizontally, so items are less likely to be wrapped. - dcljr (talk) 09:47, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
- Good point, and I agree it looks better. Would you like to volunteer the current copy (at least of the items appearing in the homepage)?--Qgil (talk) 19:57, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
- Applied to the items visible at the homepage. Much better! --Qgil (talk) 16:45, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Lua meets in
I think there's an error in the date of :
- Lua meets Wikipedia meetup in SF + video stream
The requested URL /flow/ was not found on this server. 220.127.116.11 11:14, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
Typo in recent news item
Hello, it looks like that the translate tags are not used within this page while it is translated. Is there any reason for that? If not, I think we should use theses tags in order to make easy the translation work. Pamputt (talk) 06:06, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
1.29 release date is wrong
Replace singular with plural under "2019-07-02"
Under "2019-07-02" on Template:MediaWiki News, it says "MediaWiki 1.31.3 and 1.32.3 is now available". Please replace this with "MediaWiki 1.31.3 and 1.32.3 are now available", because it is clearly plural. GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 18:08, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
