The team’s activity last week was dominated by technical tasks. In particular, the main focus of the team was preparing for the MediaWiki 1.27.0 upgrade which will be happening soon.
While we’re not in a position to announce the date of the upgrade just yet, the technical team have been working continuously over the week to prepare it. A number of functions have been removed or replaced in this release which affects a larger chunk of our code than normal. In particular, skins and anti-spam tools which need to be updated before we can deploy 1.27.0 on all wikis.
The customer support team continued their tireless work to respond to any queries and help as many users as possible, and our interns are continuing to make great progress on some interesting new project.
