+= 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.
+== MediaWiki 1.7.1 ==
+July 8, 2006
+MediaWiki 1.7.1 is a security and bugfix maintenance release of the
+Summer 2006 snapshot:
+A potential HTML/JavaScript-injection vulnerability in a debugging script
+has been fixed. Only versions and configurations of PHP vulnerable to the
+$GLOBALS overwrite vulnerability are affected.
+As a workaround for existing installs, profileinfo.php may simply be deleted
+if it's not being used.
+* Fix for 'emailconfirmed' implicit user group
+* Fix for upgrades on some versions of MySQL 4.0.x
+* Fixed potential XSS in profileinfo.php
+* Installer now shows clear error message about old PHP versions
+ rather than a confusing parse error
+== MediaWiki 1.7.0 ==
+July 6, 2006
+This is the quarterly release snapshot for Summer 2006. While the code
+has been running on Wikipedia for some time, installation and upgrade
+bits may be less well tested. Bug fix releases may follow in the coming
+days or weeks.
+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 development happen
+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:
+== Compatibility ==
+MediaWiki 1.7 requires PHP 5 (5.1 recommended). PHP 4 is no longer supported.
+If you are unable to run PHP 5, you may have to stick with 1.6 for now.
+MySQL 3.23.x is no longer supported; some older hosts may need to upgrade.
+At this time we still recommend 4.0, but 4.1/5.0 will work fine in most cases.
+Experimental Oracle support has been dropped as it is unmaintained.
+== Upgrading ==
+Several changes to the database have been made from 1.6:
+* A new "langlinks" table tracks interlanguage links
+* A new "filearchive" table stores information on deleted files
+* A new "querycache_info" table stores information on query page updates
+To ensure that these tables are filled with data, run refreshLinks.php after
+the upgrade.
+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.
+== Configuration changes ==
+Some configuration options have changed:
+* $wgAllowExternalImages now defaults to off for increased security.
+* $wgLocalTZoffset was in hours, it is now using minutes.
+* Extensions may register special pages via the $wgSpecialPages array
+ without forcing an early load of the SpecialPage.php class file.
+== Major new features ==
+* Deleted files can now be archived and undeleted, if you set up
+ an appropriate non-web-accessible directory.
+ Set $wgSaveDeletedFiles on and an appropriate directory path in
+ $wgFileStore['deleted']['directory']
+* Experimental PostgreSQL support has been updated. It may or may
+ not be in usable shape; those interested in PostgreSQL are encouraged
+ to follow 1.8 development.

+ Special:Undelete

+* Sanitizer::validateTagAttributes now available to discard illegal/unsafe
+ attribute values from an array.
+* (bug 3837) Leave <center> as is instead of doing an unsafe text replacement
+ to <div class="center">. <center> is perfectly valid in the target doctype
+ (XHTML 1.0 Transitional), while the replacement didn't catch all cases and
+ could even result in invalid output from valid input.
+* (bug 4280) Use 'noindex,nofollow' instead of 'noindex,follow' for default
+ meta robots tag on diff view and special pages. Should reduce impact of
+ robots on scrolling special pages, diffs etc on sites where robots.txt
+ doesn't forbid access.

+* Use double quoted consistently on attributes in linker output; preparing
+ for new normalization code when tidy not in use
+* Replace "nogomatch" with "noexactmatch" and place the magic colon in the messages
+ themselves. Some minor tweaks to the actual message content.
+* Introduce $wgContentNamespaces which allows for articles to exist in namespaces other
+ than the main namespace, and still be counted as valid content in the site statistics.
+* (bug 5932) Introduce {{PAGESINNAMESPACE}} magic word
+* Disable $wgAllowExternalImages by default.
+* (bug 2700) Nice things like link completion and signatures now work in <gallery> tags.
+* Cancel output buffering in StreamFile; when used inside gzip buffering this
+ could cause funny timeout behavior as the Content-Length was wrong.
+* Return correct content-type header with 304 responses for StreamFile;
+ it confuses Safari if you let it return "text/html".
+* (bug 6280) Correct GRAMMAR for Slovenian localisation (sl)

+* Introduce optional (off by default) language selector bar for user login
+ and registration. Customisable via the "loginlanguagelinks" message, the
+ links will preserve "returnto" values. If the user creates an account while
+ using such a link, then the language in use will be saved as their language
+ preference.
+* Make sure '~~~' '~~~~' '~~~~~' are removed in Nickname preference.
+* Rename "ipusuccess" to "unblocked", change the format (now wiki text)
+* (bug 2316) Add "caption" attribute to <gallery> tag

+* Fix notice in MacBinary detection debug data for files of certain lengths
+* (bug 6131) Add type detection for DjVu files, allowing them to be uploaded
+ with validity checking and size detection. No inline thumbnailing yet,
+ but could be added in the future.
+* (bug 6423) Don't update newtalk flag if page content didn't change (null edits
+ were causing the newtalk flag to trigger inappropriately)
+* Parser functions are now set using magic words.
+* (bug 6428) Incorrect form action URL on Special:Newimages with hidebots = 0 set
+* (bug 4990) Show page source to blocked users on edits, or their modified version

+ the MySQL Database class. This may fix some rare breakage with binary fields.
+ Note that MediaWiki does not support the multibyte character sets where a
+ "dumb" byte replacement can be actively dangerous; UTF-8 is always safe
+ in this regard due to the bit patterns which make head and tail bytes
+ distinct.
+* (bug 6497) Use $wgMetaNamespaceTalk for Esperanto if set

+* (bug 6485) Update to Indonesian translation (id) #24

+* Fix regression in Polish genitive month forms
