Comparisons[edit]

Other projects[edit]

Updates from Translate, Universal Language Selector, MLEB and other projects.

Development update[edit]

MLEB 2016.01 was released, fixing multiple bugs users had reported.

Translate extension is now compatible with the upcoming PHP 7: fixes were done by a Google Code-In student. To address the shoemaker's children go barefoot situation, we removed some unused messages and added documentation for some messages missing it. We are close to have all messages documented for translators. The language codes outputted in HTML language tags are now formatted in more standard way.

Universal Language Selector was converted to extension registration. Krinkle made some performance improvements to the compact language links beta feature. Code maintenance patches were submitted by several people outside the Language team.

Usage data[edit]

  • Translatable pages: Meta 2612 (+5); MediaWiki.org 2907 (+37); Commons 436 (+2)
    • These numbers are smaller than usual, but they are offset by the larger than usual numbers for the previous month
