This is the Wikidata summary of the week before 2014-08-23.


Other Noteworthy Stuff[edit]

  • The new Main page will go live early next week! See the announcement at Project chat for more details and to leave any last comments
  • It will be possible to show the badges like "Featured Article" stored on Wikidata in the sidebar of the clients (Wikipedia, Wikisource, ...) starting Tuesday. Wikipedia will follow on Thursday.
  • Starting Tuesday we will deploy a new beta feature on the clients. It will allow you to show links to other sister projects in the sidebar based on the links in Wikidata.
  • Planning for structured data support for Commons is starting to pick up speed. Get involved: Also maybe attend the office hour?

Did you know?[edit]


  • Deployed lots of new features like badges, access to language links for Wikinews and Wikidata, the monolingual text data type and redirects!
  • Working hard on making the new UI a reality, mainly refactoring the UI widgets right now. Covers a lot of ground and will take some time.
  • More work on HHVM issues that need to be fixed before Wikidata can switch to it.

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