Change notes from older releases. For current info see RELEASE-NOTES.
+== MediaWiki 1.11 ==
+This is the Summer 2007 branch release of MediaWiki.
+MediaWiki is now using a "continuous integration" development model with
+quarterly snapshot releases. The latest development code is always kept
+"ready to run", and in fact runs our own sites on Wikipedia.
+Release branches will continue to receive security updates for about a year
+from first release, but nonessential bugfixes and feature developments
+will be made on the development trunk and appear in the next quarterly release.
+Those wishing to use the latest code instead of a branch release can obtain
+it from source control:
+== Configuration changes since 1.10 ==
+* $wgThumbUpright - Adjust width of upright images when parameter 'upright' is
+ used
+* $wgAddGroups, $wgRemoveGroups - Finer control over who can assign which
+ usergroups
+* $wgEnotifImpersonal, $wgEnotifUseJobQ - Bulk mail options for large sites
+* $wgShowHostnames - Expose server host names through the API and HTML comments
+* $wgSaveDeletedFiles has been removed, the feature is now enabled unconditionally
+== New features since 1.10 ==
+* (bug 8868) Separate "blocked" message for autoblocks
+* Adding expiry of block to block messages

+ Special:Watchlist
+* (bug 8818) Expose "wpDestFile" as parameter $1 to "uploaddisabledtext"
+* Introducing new image keyword 'upright' and corresponding variable
+ $wgThumbUpright. This allows better proportional view of upright images
+ related to landscape images on a page without nailing the width of upright
+ images to a fix value which makes views for anon unproportional and user
+ preferences useless
+* (bug 6072) Introducing 'border' keyword to the [[Image:]] syntax
+* Introducing 'frameless' keyword to [[Image:]] syntax which respects the
+ user preferences for image width like 'thumb' but without a frame.
+* (bug 7960) Link to "what links here" for each "what links here" entry
+* Added support for configuration of an arbitrary number of commons-style
+ file repositories.

+ when viewing the current revision of a page, if available
+* (bug 8890) Enable wiki text for "license" message
+* Throw a showstopper exception when a hook function fails to return a value.
+ Forgetting to give a 'true' return value is a very common error which tends
+ to cause hard-to-track-down interactions between extensions.
