[edit] MediaWiki 1.9

[edit] Behavior changes

[edit] Localized special pages

The names of Special: pages can now be localized, so links and URLs to them are more legible in languages that aren't English.

Not all languages have included localized names yet.

[edit] E-mail password

Users are now required to set a new password for themselves when they first log in with a newly generated e-mailed password.

Requesting passwords frequently is prevented to reduce abusive mailbombing.

[edit] Undo revision

An "undo" link now appears in diff view for easier reverting of older edits. When GNU diff3 is available for edit conflict merging, this can make it much easier to "undo" the changes of an older edit when there are surrounding changes elsewhere in the page.

The changes must be manually reviewed and approved, as with conventional full-revision reverts.

[edit] Blocking

User blocks can be set to disable the automatic blocking of IP addresses the account logs in with.

[edit] New settings

[edit] $wgRCShowChangedSize

Special:Recentchanges and Special:Watchlist now show the number of bytes added or removed to an article to give an idea of the size of the edit. This information was previously available only in the IRC update feeds.

  • Fix regression in Special:Undelete for revisions deleted under MediaWiki 1.4 with compression or legacy encoding
  • (bug 6737) Fixes for MySQL 5 schema in strict mode
  • Approximate height for client-side scaling fallback instead of passing -1 into the HTML output.
  • Make the DNSBL to check for proxy blocking configurable via $wgSorbsUrl
  • Add experimental recording/reporting mode to parser tests runner, to compare changes against the previous run. Additional tables 'testrun' and 'testitem' are in maintenance/testRunner.sql, source this and pass --record option to parserTests.php
  • Make the set of default parser test input files extensible via $wgParserTestFiles. This can now be appended to by extensions or local configuration files so that extension or custom tests can be automatically run along with the main batch.
  • Run PHP install version checks on update.php so command-line updaters see new version requirements
  • Do a check for the PHP 5.0.x 64-bit bug, since this is much more disruptive as of MW 1.8 than it used to be. Install or upgrade now aborts with a warning and a request to upgrade.
  • (bug 6440) Updated indexes to improve backlinking queries (links, templates, images)
  • Switched 'anon-only' block mode to default for IP blocks
  • (bug 3687, 7892) Add distinct heading for media files in category display, with count.

  • (bug 6873) When viewing old revisions, add link to diff to current version.
  • (bug 3315) Provide rollback link directly on history page.
  • Replace 'old-revision-navigation' message with 'revision-info' and 'revision-nav' messages, wrapped in divs with appropriate id's.

  • (bug 7918) "Templates used on this page" changes during preview to reflect any added or removed templates, and works as expected for section edits.
  • (bug 7919) "Templates used on this page" is now shown for read-only pages.
  • (bug 7688) When viewing diff, section anchors in autosummary jump to section on current page instead of loading the latest version.
  • (bug 7970) Use current connection explicitly on Database::getServerVersion
  • (bug 2001) Tables with class="sortable" can now be dynamically sorted via JavaScript.
  • Added autosummary for new pages with 500 or less characters, and refactor the autosummary code so it's all done in one function. doEdit is getting too big!
  • (bug 7554) The correct MIME type for SVG images is now displayed on the image page (image/svg+xml, not image/svg).
  • (bug 7883) Added autoblock whitelisting feature, using which specific ranges can be protected from autoblocking. These ranges are specified, in list format, in the autoblock_whitelist system message.
  • Added placeholders for text injection by hooks to EditPage.php
  • (bug 8009) Automatic edit summary for redirects is not filled for edits in existing pages
  • Installer support for experimental MySQL 4.1/5.0 binary-safe schema
  • Use INSERT IGNORE for db-based BagOStuff add/insert, for more memcache-like behavior when keys already exist on add (instead of dying with an error...)
  • Add a hook 'UploadForm:initial' before the upload form is generated, and two member variable for text injection into the form, which can be filled by the hooks.
  • (bug 6295) Add a "revision patching" functionality, where an edit can be undone (with a functionality similar to diff rev1 rev2 | patch -R rev3 -o rev3). This is triggered by including &undo=revid in an edit URL. A link to a URL that will undo a given edit is shown on NEW revision headers on diff pages. The link leads to a "Show Changes" page showing what will be done to undo the edit.
  • Fix display of link in "already rolled back" message for image/category pages
  • (bug 6016) Left-aligned images should stack vertically, like right-aligned images, not horizontally.
  • Patch from LeonWP: added UploadForm:BeforeProcessing hook in SpecialUpload.php
  • Add AuthPluginSetup hook to override $wgAuth after configuration
  • Fix regression in authentication hook auto-creation on login
  • (bug 8110) Allow spaces in ISBNs
  • (bug 8024) Introduce "send me copies of emails I send to others" preference
  • Added 'EditPage::attemptSave' hook before an article is saved.
  • (bug 8083) Applied patch for sk localisation
  • Add a backslash character to the edit token, to prevent edits via certain broken proxies that mangle such characters in form submissions
  • (bug 7461) Allow overwriting pages using importTextFile.php
  • (bug 7946) importTextFile.php doesn't perform pre-save transform
  • (bug 8117) 20110124224029 showed weird default if $wgLocalTZoffset set; now uses current time for previews and if timestamp can't be loaded from DB
  • 20110124224029 now uses site local timezone instead of user timezone to ensure consistent behavior
  • 20110124224029 and friends should now work on non-MySQL backends
  • (bug 7671) Observe canonical media namespace prefix in Linker::formatComment
  • Added js variable wgCurRevisionId to the output
  • (bug 8141) Cleanup of Parser::doTableStuff, patch by AzaTht
  • (bug 8042) Make miser mode caching limits settable via $wgQueryCacheLimit instead of hardcoding to 1000
  • Enable QueryPage classes to override list formatting
  • (bug 5485) Show number of intervening revisions in diff view
  • (bug 8100) Fix XHTML validity in Taiwanese localization
  • Added redirect to section feature. Use it wisely.
  • Added a configuration variable allowing the "break out of framesets" feature to be switched on and off ($wgBreakFrames). Off by default.
  • Allow Xml::check() $attribs parameter to override 'value' attribute
  • DB schema change: added two columns (rc_old_len and rc_new_len) to the recentchanges table to store the text lengths before and after the edit
  • (bug 1085) Made Special:Recentchanges show the character difference between the changed revisions
  • Removed a redundant <strong> tag from diff pages that was causing display issues for some users
  • (bug 8203) The keyboard shortcut for "log out" was removed, because users were pressing it when they intended to press the shortcut for "preview".
  • (bug 8148) Handle non-removable output buffers gracefully when cleaning buffers for HTTP 304 responses, StreamFile, and Special:Export. Duplicated code merged into wfResetOutputBuffers() and wfClearOutputBuffers()
  • Special:AllPages : 'next page' link now point to the first title of the next chunk instead of pointing to the last title of current chunk.
  • (bug 4673) Special:AllPages : add a 'previous' link (new message 'prevpage')
  • (bug 8121) wfRandom() was not between 0 and 1
  • Add static method Parser::createAssocArgs($args), so parser functions can use the same code to parse arguments as the templates do.
  • Change behavior of logins using the temporary e-mailed password (as stored in user_newpassword hash field). Instead of just logging in silently and leaving the previous user_password field in place indefinitely, the user is now prompted to set a new password. The password-changing form is at Special:Resetpass; currently it's only usable for changing from the temporary password during login, but it could perhaps be generalized, replacing the subform in preferences. Once the new password is set successfully, the temporary password is wiped so it cannot be used to login a second time, and the login process is completed.
  • Suppress 'mail new password' button on login form if $wgAuth forbids changing user passwords; it wouldn't work very well...
  • Consolidate password length checks and $wgAuth manipulation into User::setPassword() to avoid duplicate code in different places that set passwords.
  • User::setPassword() now throws PasswordError exceptions if the password is illegal or cannot be set via $wgAuth. These can be caught and a human- readable error message displayed by UI code.
  • Added Title::isSubpage()
  • (bug 8241) Don't consider user pages of User:Foo.css to be CSS subpages
  • Set an explicit class on framed thumbnail inner divs and images, changed some CSS to use these instead of using descendent selectors.
  • Accept null parameter to User::setPassword() as indicating the password field should be cleared to an unusable state. Login will only be possible after the password is reset, for instance by e-mail.
  • (bug 6394) Invalidate the password set for "by e-mail" account creations to avoid accidental empty password creations.
  • Made the show change size function work on page moves, page creations, and log entries. Also fixed it in the javascript recentchanges.
  • (bug 8239) correctly get 50 new contributions when clicking '(50 next)'
  • (bug 2259) Fix old regression where e-mail addresses were no longer confirmed on login with mailed password.
  • Add a notification about the confirmation mail sent during account creation, so people don't immediately go off to request a second one.
  • Add a warning on Special:Confirmemail if a code was already sent and has not yet expired.
  • Add user_editcount field to provide data for heuristics on account use. Incremented on edit, with lazy initialization from past revision data. Can batch-initialize with maintenance/initEditCount.php (not yet friendly to replication environments, this will do all accounts in one query).
  • Allow raw SQL subsections in Database::update() SET portion as well as for WHERE portion. Handy for increments and such.
  • User::getOption now accept a default value to override default user values this makes it consistent with WebRequest::get* methods. Corrected code in various places accordingly.
  • (bug 8264) Fix JavaScript global vars for XHTML mode
  • Make $wgSiteNotice value wikitext again, for consistency with editable MediaWiki:Sitenotice and MediaWiki:Anonnotice.
  • (bug 8044) When redirecting from the canonical name of the special page to the localised one, parameters/subpages are omitted
  • (bug 8164) Special:Booksources should use GET for form submission
  • Rewrite Special:Booksources to clean up interface and remove redundant code
  • (bug 7925) Change Special:Allmessages message name filter javascript to be a bit more responsive and easier on the CPU
  • (bug 4488) Support watching pages on deletion; introduces new user preference
  • Minor restructuring of Special:Preferences; "watch pages I edit" and "watch pages I create" options now accessible under "Watchlist" options
  • (bug 8153) <nowiki> doesn't work in site notice
  • (bug 6690) wfMsgNoTrans() transforms messages
  • (bug 8274) Wrap edit tools in a <div> with a specified class
  • Detect PHP 5.0.x 64-bit bug and abort in WebStart.php; too many things break mysteriously otherwise (detection code copied from install-utils.inc)
  • (bug 8295) Change handling of <center> tags in doBlockLevels() to match that of <div>
  • (bug 8110) Make magic ISBN linking stricter: only match ten-digit sequences (plus optional ISBN-13 prefix) with no immediately following alphanumeric character, disallow multiple consecutive internal redirects
  • (bug 2785) Accept optional colon prefix in links when formatting comments
  • Don't show "you can view and copy the source of this page" message for pages which don't exist
  • (bug 8310) Blank line added to top of 'post' when page is blank
  • (bug 8109) Template parameters ignored in "recentchangestext"
  • Gracefully skip redirect-to-fragment on WebKit versions less than 420; it messes up on current versions of Safari but is ok in the latest nightlies. Checking the version number will allow it to automatically work when new releases of Safari appear.
  • Fix regression in thumb styles; size and padding didn't match with new arrangement.
  • (bug 8333) Fix quick user data update on login password change on replication database setups. User data is now pulled from master instead of slave in User::loadFromDatabase, ensuring that it is fresh and accurate when read and then saved back into cache. This was breaking with the Special:Rename operation which automatically logs the user in with the new password after changing it; pulling from slave meant the record was often not the updated one.
  • (bug 8335) Set image width to the first valid parameter found.
  • (bug 8350) Fix watchlist viewing bug when using Postgres.
  • (bug 6603) When warning about invalid file extensions, output the bit of the extension we actually checked
  • (bug 7669) Drop defaults on BLOB/TEXT columns for better compatibility with MySQL's strict mode, often enabled by the Windows installer. The defaults are ignored anyway when strict mode is off...
  • (bug 7685) Use explicit values for ar_text and ar_flags when deleting, for better compatibility with MySQL's strict mode
  • Update default interwiki values to reflect changed location of ursine:
  • (bug 5411) Remove autopatrol preference
  • Users who have the "autopatrol" permission will have their edits marked as patrolled automatically
  • Users who do not have the "autopatrol" permission will no longer be able to mark their own edits as patrolled
  • Introduce 'PingLimiter' hook; see docs/hooks.txt for more information
  • (bug 532) Tweaked alt text for some interface messages
  • (bug 8231) Gave useful alt text to the main <img> on image pages
  • (bug 371) Remove alt text for "Enlarge" icon on thumbnails
  • Initialize user_editcount to 0 instead of NULL for newly created accounts
  • (bug 3696) Strip LRM and RLM characters from titles to work around the problem some people have where titles cut-and-pasted from lists include the bidi override characters appended to the lists. A more thorough blacklist for forbidden and translatable characters would be wise, though, as might a cleaner method for the lists in the first place.
  • Fix regression in email password resets on read-restricted sites

  • now handles formatted numbers correctly
  • (bug 8331) Added the change size value to watchlists; therefore made watchlists use RecentChange::newFromRow() instead of newFromCurRow()
  • (bug 8351) Fix undo for simple reverts
  • (bug 6856) User::clearNotification() does not respect read-only mode
  • (bug 6853) Use a checkbox on the installer form to indicate that a superuser account should be used; this is clearer than the old check which relied on the password never being an obscure value
  • Remove old unused watchlist cache, which was a leftover from the old schema where watchlists were more expensive to generate
  • Minor cosmetic changes to Special:Userrights
  • Added wgCanonicalSpecialPageName to JavaScript variables
  • Fix image deleting when using Postgres.

  • Prevent conversion of JavaScript code in language variants
  • Output software version number in maintenance/parserTests.php
  • (bug 7169) Use Ajax to watch/unwatch articles if enabled
  • Make variant table caching a little more robust, using main language code in cache key. Probably this is still a bit wonky, though. Was breaking parser tests when Chinese tables were getting loaded into Serbian code.
  • (bug 8380) Be nicer about blank lines in deleteBatch.php
  • (bug 8401) Fix regression in SORBS lookup for some DNS setups
  • Use raw file descriptor in posix_isatty() check to avoid warning on Linux systems with at least some versions of PHP

  • Add hook for extensions to add user information to the panel in preferences, next to the user name and ID.
  • (bug 8392) Display protection status of transcluded pages in the edit page template list. Patch by Fyren, with i18n naming tweak.
  • Fix for interwiki transclusion where target wiki uses query string for title
  • Resolve namespaces on interwiki Title objects using canonical namespace names if possible (should not happen, though, outside interwiki transclusion... and maybe not even then, but it does)
  • (bug 8447) Fix SQL typo breaking non-default $wgHitcounterUpdateFreq
  • Do not allow previews of deleted images to be cached
  • Add global variable $wgDefaultLanguageVariant used to set the default language variant of a wiki to something different than the main language code
  • Add 'variant' option to parserTests - runs test with the given variant as preferred, utilize it for more parser tests of language variants code
  • (bug 6503) Fix bug that stopped certain irrelevant links from being hidden for printing
  • Avoid PHP warning in Creative Commons metadata when a creative commons license is not actually set up

  • (bug 8489) Support basic links in <gallery> caption attribute
  • (bug 8485) Correct Lingala number formatting
  • The MediaWiki namespace is no longer pre-filled with default messages on install. All default messages will be removed from the MediaWiki namespace on upgrade.

  • (bug 8417) Handle EXIF unknown dates
  • (bug 8372) Return nothing on empty <math> tags.
  • New maintenance script to show the cached statistics : showStats.php.
  • Count deleted edits when regenerating total edits in maintenance/initStats.php
