Schedule[edit]

Phase Date Wikis
Phase 4 Thursday, July 3, 2014 not deployed to Wikipedias, since its for Wikidata only
Phase 3 Tuesday, July 1, 2014 Yes Done Deploy to Wikidata (not deployed to Wikivoyage, Commons, Wikisource, Wikiquote)
Phase 2 Yes Done Thursday, June 26, 2014 Deploy to testwikidata
Phase 1 Yes Done Wednesday, July 25, 2014 Branchday

Changes[edit]

Enabling new property / entity suggester for test / wikidata.

The suggester enhances the property suggestions on Wikidata when entering new statements. For example, an item that already has "head of government", when you enter the next statement and enter "t" and "type of administrative entity" is the first suggestion instead of "tennis singles rating" or other such less irrelevant suggestion, based on correlation statistics for properties and how often they are used together on items.

The suggester has an api module and combines results in / extends the default Wikibase javascript entity suggester.

The suggester has been reviewed for security, etc. (see bugzilla:66382) and is deployed on the Wikidata test / demo system. [1]
