Other Noteworthy Stuff[edit]

Did you know?[edit]


  • Finished a large number of new features and got them ready for roll-out. More in this email.
  • Wikibase made a big step forward to finally switch to DataModel 1.0.
  • Improved support for entity IDs bigger than 2 billion (32 bit integer).
  • We had to adapt Wikibase to some major changes (more major than usual, partly caused by discussions at Wikimania) in MediaWiki core: The default Vector skin became its own component and the ResourceLoader got some small but important updates.
  • Continued work on refactoring code of the user interface to make it ready for new design
  • Wrote a script to get number of users having wikidata in their recent changes/watchlist from the database

See current sprint items for what we’re working on next.
