+ which actually uses ResourceLoader, LocalSettings and the Skin.
+* Removed $wgDBtransactions global. This was only checked in one class

+ not used and complicated migration to Message class.

+ 'mediawiki.action.edit.preview' module. The old 'mediawiki.legacy.preview' module
+ has been removed.
+* (bug 40448) Removed mediawiki.legacy.mwsuggest module, and removed the
+ following that has become obsolete:
+ - globals $wgEnableMWSuggest and $wgMWSuggestTemplate.
+ - mw.config.values wgMWSuggestTemplate and wgSearchNamespaces.
+ - method SearchEngine::getMWSuggestTemplate().
+== Compatibility ==
+MediaWiki 1.20 requires PHP 5.3.2. PHP 4 is no longer supported.
+MySQL is the recommended DBMS. PostgreSQL or SQLite can also be used, but
+support for them is somewhat less mature. There is experimental support for IBM
+DB2 and Oracle.
+The supported versions are:
+* MySQL 5.0.2 or later
+* PostgreSQL 8.3 or later
+* SQLite 3.3.7 or later
+* Oracle 9.0.1 or later
+== Upgrading ==
+1.20 has several database changes since 1.19, and will not work without schema
+If upgrading from before 1.11, and you are using a wiki as a commons
+repository, make sure that it is updated as well. Otherwise, errors may arise
+due to database schema changes.
+If upgrading from before 1.7, you may want to run refreshLinks.php to ensure
+new database fields are filled with data.
+If you are upgrading from MediaWiki 1.4.x or earlier, some major database
+changes are made, and there is a slightly higher chance that things could
+break. Don't forget to always back up your database before upgrading!
+See the file UPGRADE for more detailed upgrade instructions.
+For notes on 1.19.x and older releases, see HISTORY.
+== Online documentation ==
+Documentation for both end-users and site administrators is available on, and is covered under the GNU Free Documentation License (except
+for pages that explicitly state that their contents are in the public domain):
+== Mailing list ==
+A mailing list is available for MediaWiki user support and discussion:
+A low-traffic announcements-only list is also available:
+It's highly recommended that you sign up for one of these lists if you're
+going to run a public MediaWiki, so you can be notified of security fixes.
+== IRC help ==
+There's usually someone online in #mediawiki on
