Broken link[edit]

@Quiddity (WMF): The help link https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Help:Extension:Kartographer is a blank page. Did you mean https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:Kartographer? --Pine 00:41, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Whoops! Fixed, thanks Pine. (It was meant to go to Special:MyLanguage/....) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 00:45, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Incorrect version and dates[edit]

@Quiddity (WMF): I think the sentence about the new version is incorrect. According to the roadmap, the new version is wmf.12 (not 13), and it will be on wikis starting on July 26 (not August 2). Guycn2 · 01:28, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that, Guycn2. Fixed. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 01:37, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Revision Slider[edit]

A new extension, named Revision Slider, was deployed today on three Wikipedias (Hebrew, German & Arabic).

It is planned to be deployed on other wikis as well. Do you think the Tech News should say something about it? Guycn2 · 01:59, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

It was included in last week's edition, Tech/News/2016/29. I think that is sufficient, for this initial rollout. Thanks for the suggestion though. :-) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 19:13, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
OK Quiddity. Regarding the upcoming change to Wikipedia search, shouldn't it be under the "Future changes" section? Guycn2 · 00:26, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi Guycn2, the change will be rolling out during the week (of 25 July), which is what the "Changes this week" section is intended to cover. HTH. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 21:03, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
