-== MediaWiki 1.15 ==
-=== Changes since 1.15.1 ===

- versions of libxml2 2.7 and PHP earlier than 5.2.9, and also for a PHP bug
- present in the official release of PHP 5.3.1.
-* (bug 20239) MediaWiki:Imagemaxsize does not contain anymore a <br /> tag which

+== MediaWiki 1.16 ==
+== Changes since 1.16.4 ==
+* (bug 28534) Fixed XSS vulnerability for IE 6 clients. This is the third
+ attempt at fixing bug 28235.
+* (bug 28639) Fixed potential privilege escalation when $wgBlockDisablesLogin
+ is enabled.
+== Changes since 1.16.3 ==
+* (bug 28507) The change we made in 1.16.3 to fix bug 28235 (XSS for IE 6

+* (bug 28449) Fixed permissions checks in Special:Import which allowed users
+ without the 'import' permission to import pages from the configured import
+ sources.
+* (bug 28235) Fixed XSS affecting IE 6 and earlier clients only, due to those
+ browsers looking for a file extension in the query string of the URL, and
+ ignoring the Content-Type header if one is found.
+* (bug 28450) Fixed a CSS validation issue involving escaped comments, which
+ led to XSS for Internet Explorer clients and privacy loss for other clients.
+== Changes since 1.16.1 ==

+* (bug 23465) Don't ignore the predefined destination filename on
+ Special:Upload after following a red link to a file.
+* In SQLite full-text search feature: fixed "move page" feature, was non-

+* Fixed an XSS vulnerability in profileinfo.php for installations with
+ $wgEnableProfileInfo = true (false by default)
+* Fixed a case where an X-Vary-Options header was sent despite $wgUseXVO being

+* $wgLocalFileRepo/$wgForeignFileRepos now have a 'fileMode' parameter to
+ be used when uploading/moving files
+* (bug 18761) $wgHiddenPrefs is a new array for specifying preferences not
+ to be shown to users
+* $wgAllowRealName and $wgAllowUserSkin were deprecated in favor of
+ $wgHiddenPrefs[] = 'realname', but the former are still retained
+ for backwards-compatibility
+* (bug 9257) $wgRCMaxAge now defaults to three months
+* $wgDevelopmentWarnings can be set to true to show warnings about deprecated
+ functions and other potential errors when developing.
+* Subpages are now enabled in the MediaWiki namespace by default. This is
+ mainly a cosmetic change, and does not in any way affect the MessageCache,
+ which was already effectively treating the namespace as if it had subpages.
+* Oracle: maintenance/ora/user.sql script for creating DB user on oracle with
+ appropriate privileges. Creating this user with web-install page requires
+ oci8.privileged_connect set to On in php.ini.
+* Removed UserrightsChangeableGroups hook introduced in 1.14
+* Added $wgCacheDirectory, to replace $wgFileCacheDirectory,
+ $wgLocalMessageCache, and any other local caches which need a place to put
+ files.
+* $wgFileCacheDirectory is no longer set to anything by default, and so either

+ to true
+* Removed $wgEnableSerializedMessages and $wgCheckSerialized. Similar
+ functionality is now available via $wgLocalisationCacheConf.

+* $wgMaintenanceScripts for extensions to add their scripts to the default list
+* $wgMemoryLimit has been added, default value '50M'
+* $wgExtraRandompageSQL is deprecated, the SpecialRandomGetRandomTitle hook
+ should be used instead
+* (bug 20489) $wgIllegalFileChars added to override the default list of illegal
+ characters in file names.
+* (bug 19646) $wgImgAuthDetails added to display reason access to uploaded file
+ was denied to users(img_auth only)

+ backward compatibility)

+ exist. In that case the URL will get (?|&)wpDestFile=<filename> appended to
+ it as appropriate.
+* If $wgLocaltimezone is null, use the server's timezone as the default for
+ signatures. This was always the behaviour documented in DefaultSettings.php
+ but has not been the actual behaviour for some time: instead, UTC was used
+ by default.
+* Added $wgExtensionAssetsPath, to decouple assets serving from $wgScriptPath.
+ If not specified it will default to $wgScriptPath/extensions
+* Added $wgCountTotalSearchHits to make search UI display total number of hits
+ with some search engines.
+* Added $wgAdvertisedFeedTypes to decide what feed types (RSS, Atom, both, or
+ neither) MediaWiki advertises. Default is array( 'atom' ), so RSS is no
+ longer advertised by default (but it still works).
+* Added $wgMemCachedTimeout, controls how long to wait for data from the
+ memcached servers.
+* New configuration variables $wgDebugTimestamps and $wgDebugPrintHttpHeaders
+ for controlling debug output.
+* New $wgBlockDisablesLogin when set to true disallows blocked users from

+ have these rights stripped from them.
+* Added a PHP port of CDB (constant database), for improved local caching when
+ the DBA extension is not available.
+* Introduced a new system for localisation caching. The system is based around
+ fast fetches of individual messages, minimising memory overhead and startup
+ time in the typical case. The database backend will be used by default, but
+ set $wgCacheDirectory to get a faster CDB-based implementation.
+* Expanded the number of variables which can be set in the extension messages
+ files.
+* Added a feature to allow per-article process pool size control for the parsing
+ task, to limit resource usage when the cache for a heavily-viewed article is
+ invalidated. Requires an external daemon.
+* (bug 19576) Moved the id attribues from the anchors accompanying section

+* If config/ directory is not executable, the command to make it executable
+ now asks the user to cd to the correct directory
+* Add experimental new external authentication framework, ExternalAuth
+* (bug 18768) Remove AdminSettings requirements. Maintenance environment

+ page link, so it doesn't have to be extracted from the link URLs.
+* (bug 16836) Display preview of signature in user preferences and describe its
+ use
+* The default output format is now HTML 5 instead of XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
+ This can be disabled by setting $wgHtml5 = false;. Specific features enabled
+ if HTML 5 is used:
+** Some extra inputs will be autofocused, in supporting browsers.
+** The summary attribute has been removed from tables of contents. summary is
+ obsolete in HTML 5 and wasn't useful here anyway.
+** Unnecessary type="" attribute removed for CSS and JS.
