- Inter-wiki search is here! An A/B test of a new search results page which includes inter-wiki search results was deployed to Persian, Italian, Catalan and Polish Wikipedias. Take a look and give us feedback!
We build collaborative, inclusive tools for creating and editing free knowledge.

Among active editors, the overall pattern remains one of great stability among existing active editors and decline among new editors. This month’s new editor decline was particularly dramatic.
Growth of mobile edits remains strong, although it has slowed significantly from its 200% year-over-year pace in 2015 and early 2016.
New editor retention increased to its highest rate in the past 3 years. However, just 5 months ago it was close to its lowest level of the past 3 years, so it’s unclear whether this is a lasting shift.
- Neil Patel Quinn is supporting the New Editor Experiences project for Contributors; he is currently helping lead the focus selection and idea generation stage.
- The filters on Recent Changes beta feature now lets you save sets of filters, with further improvements coming soon.
- The Linter tool, which helps editors find and highlight wikitext errors, is now available on all wikis except the largest (like MediaWiki.org – see the linting index page). We will release it to the remaining wikis soon, once performance concerns are addressed.
- Improvements to Content Translation to replace its editor with the same platform as the visual editor continue.
- In the visual editor, you can now see visual diffs as you edit. We will improve and expand it in the weeks ahead.
- Our work on deploying Compact Language Links out of beta (T66793) is nearing completion. It is available to everyone on all wikis except two Wikipedias, 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-to-late-2017.
We build exceptional learning and reading experiences for the sum of all knowledge.
