Here's another quick round of updates from across the MediaWiki world.

First up, the 2nd Enterprise MediaWiki Conference was a resounding success. 34 some odd folks showed up in McLean, VA for three days of presentations, panels, lightning talks, and participation in the create camp. A great thanks to the chairs, Cindy Cicalese, Bernadette Clemente, Yaron Karen, and Mark Hershberger. Videos and sides of the presentations are available on the conference page.

A few things that came out of the conference:

Other news:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is hiring a Product Manager for MediaWiki! This position will be a pivotal role in defining the roadmap and future development of MediaWiki as a technological product of the foundation. Please apply if interested and share among the community.
  • MediaWiki will be dropping javascript support for Internet Explorer 9 in the near future. It will be affecting Wikimedia wikis in April and be part of the 1.29 release of MediaWiki in May.
  • The MediaWiki testimonials page hasn't seen any additions in a few years. With the urging of WMF staffer and Stakeholder member Chris Koerner [Editors note: That's me :) ], there's a renewed interest in updating the list of testimonials. Submissions are encouraged and welcomed!
  • As Marcus mentioned, the MediaWiki Stakeholders' will be hosting a track at the upcoming Vienna Hackathon. Please attend and participate.
