= MediaWiki release notes =
Security reminder: MediaWiki does not require PHP's register_globals
setting since version 1.2.0. If you have it on, turn it *off* if you can.
+== Changes since 1.7 ==
+* Introduced AjaxResponse object, superceding AjaxCachePolicy
+* Changes to sajax_do_call: optionally accept an element to fill instead of a
+ callback function; take the target function or element as a third parameter;
+ pass the full XMLHttpRequest object to the handler function, instead of just
+ the resultText value; use HTTP response codes to report errors.
+* (bug 6562) Removed unmaintained ParserXml.php for now
+* History paging overlap bug fixed
+* (bug 6586) Regression in "unblocked" subtitle
+* Don't put empty-page message into view-source when page text is blank
+* (bug 6587) Remove redundant "allnonarticles" message
+* Block improvements: Allow blocks on anonymous users only. Optionally allow
+ or disallow account creation from blocked IP addresses. Prevent duplicate
+ blocks. Fixed the problem of expiry and unblocking erroneously affecting
+ multiple blocks. Fixed confusing lack of error message when a blocked user
+ attempts to create an account. Fixed inefficiency of Special:Ipblocklist in
+ the presence of large numbers of blocks; added indexes and implemented an
+ indexed pager.
+* (bug 6448) Allow filtering of Special:Newpages according to username
+* (bug 6618) Improve permissions/error detection in Special:Lockdb
+* Quick hack for extension testing: parser test doesn't create new message
+ cache object.
+* (bug 6299) Maintain parser's revision ID across recursive calls to fix
+ {{REVISIONID}} when Cite extension is used
+* (bug 6622) Removed deprecated function Image::newFromTitle
+* (bug 6627) Fix regression in Special:Ipblocklist with table prefix
+* Removed forced dereferencements (new() returns a reference in PHP5)
+* Note about $wgUploadSizeWarning using byte
+* (bug 6592) Add most viewed pages summary to Special:Statistics
+* Pre-strip characters ignored in IDNs from URLs so they can't be used
+ to break the blacklists for regular URLs
+* Fix regression in blocking of user accounts
+* (bug 6635) Fix regression searching for range blocks on Ipblocklist
+* Fix regression searching Ipblocklist with ugly URLs
+* (bug 6639) Use a consistent default for upload directories
+* Preserve entered reason when reporting unconfirmed lock on Special:Lockdb
+* (bug 6642) Don't offer to unlock the database when it isn't locked
+* cleanupTitles.php changed from --dry-run option to --fix, so default
+ behavior is now a non-invasive check as with namespaceDupes.php
+* (bug 6660) Fix behaviour of EditPage::blockedPage() when the article does
+ not exist; now doesn't show the source box if the user hasn't provided it
+ (blocked mid-edit) and the page doesn't exist
+* Improve default value of "blockedtext"
+* (bug 6680) Added localisation for Dutch bookstore list (nl)

+ introduced 'MediaWiki:Searchbutton'

+* Moved the bulk of the localisation data from the Language*.php files to the
+ Messages*.php files. Deleted most of the Languages*.php files.
+* Introduced "stub global" framework to provide deferred initialisation of core
+ modules.
+* Removed placeholder values for $wgTitle and $wgArticle, these variables will
+ now be null during the initialisation process, until they are set by index.php
+ or another entry point.
+* Added DBA cache type, for BDB-style caches.
+* Removed custom date format functions, replacing them with a format string in
+ the style of PHP's date(). Used string identifiers instead of integer
+ identifiers, in both the language files and user preferences. Migration should
+ be transparent in most cases.
+* Simplified the initialisation API for LoadBalancer objects.
+* Removed the broken altencoding feature.
+* Moved default user options and toggles from Language to User. Language objects
+ are still able to define default preference overrides and extra user toggles,
+ via a slightly different interface.
+* Don't include the date option in the parser cache rendering hash unless
+ $wgUseDynamicDates is enabled.
+* Merged LanguageUtf8 with Language. Removed LanguageUtf8.php.

+ now consistently done from Language::factory().
