Other Noteworthy Stuff[edit]

  • The preview gadget has been rewritten and now comes with a completely new user interface. You can enable it here.
  • Wikiquote received access to the data on Wikidata (aka phase 2) on Tuesday.
  • Try out the new Wikidata Property Browser.
  • The Merge gadget has been updated. It is now faster and only one edit per merge is performed.

Did you know?[edit]


  • Continued with the implementation of redirects. There are a lot of corner cases to work out...
  • Created new data value handlers for quantities and geo coordinates, bringing queries closer
  • Moved browser tests to a new repository at to make the main Wikibase repo smaller and cleaner
  • Fixed a bunch of issues with the monobook skin
  • Made some more jQuery 1.9 compatibility fixes
  • More cleanup for the coming switch to WikibaseDataModel 1.0.
  • Icinga Dispatch Lag monitoring scripts, including IRC notifier bot, have been tested and are ready for Ops implementation. This should give us quicker notifications in case the notifications to Wikipedia and co about changes on Wikidata are slow again.
  • Enabled data access for Wikiquote
