Development[edit]

  • Chaged a number of Lua modules (from deprecated function mw.wikibase.getEntity to mw.wikibase.getEntityObject)
  • Updated the json documentation

  • Fixes for the Wikibase qunit Jenkins job
  • Made Vagrant git-update also properly update Wikibase and dependencies
  • Fix for phabricator:T88254 (malformatted Wikidata entries appearing in Watchlist RSS feed in clients)
  • Final touches on new header design
  • Investigated how we can provide language fallback also in suggestions when search or adding new statements
