Noteworthy changes[edit]

  • Lots of cleanup, refactoring and performance improvements:
  • The ResourceLoader modules for ULS were redone. They are now lazy-loaded to improve the initial page loading time. To use features provided by ULS, such as styles, ULS data utils functions, and others, you must load the features separately in your extensions. See for more details.

  • The Autonym font is included in the webfonts repository.
  • Bug 53772: Visual indication while saving the settings.
  • Bug 56885: Fix and enable feature Persistent settings.
  • Bug 56888: Use data-i18n for system font l10n. This ensures that the translation is updated properly in the language live preview.
  • Fixed Ukranian (uk) and Russian (ru) languages grammar rules.


  • New fonts: Hanuman, Nokora and Suwannaphum fonts for Khmer.
  • New font: Batak.
  • Updated MiriamCLM font from upstream.
