This is the Wikidata summary of the week before 2014-03-21.



Did you know?[edit]


  • Continued making the UI faster
  • Fixed Wikidata changes not showing up in the watchlist on the client (Wikipedia, etc.) (bugzilla:62149)
  • Decided to turn off the inoperable language subdomains for now to reduce confusion
  • Created initial version of Wikibase Internal Serialization component
  • wbEntity and wbUsedEntities JavaScript variables are now cached in the parser cache
  • Ongoing refactoring to get rid of the previously used numeric ID numbers in favor of prefixed IDs
  • Made wbsearchentities aware of previously unquoted percent characters
  • Put some time into fixing longstanding oddities that made the developers cry from time to time
  • Worked on reducing internal usage of EntityContent, in preparation for redirect support
  • Worked on performance issues with JSON dump generation (hopefully we can start generating dumps soon)

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