  improved, and can now extract IPTC and XMP metadata.

* Math support has been removed from core

* (bug 29912) Unit tests break if parsertest tables are still present.
* (bug 31694) During installation, tabbing order (cursor focus) goes to logo

=== Configuration changes in 1.18 ===
* The WantedPages::getSQL hook has been removed and replaced with
  WantedPages::getQueryInfo. This may break older extensions.
* The SkinTemplateBuildContentActionUrlsAfterSpecialPage,
  SkinTemplateContentActions and SkinTemplateTabs hooks have been removed in
  favor of SkinTemplateNavigation and SkinTemplateNavigation::SpecialPage.
* $wgUseCombinedLoginLink controls whether to output a combined
  login / create account link in the personal bar, or to output separate login
  and create account links.
* Skin names are no longer created based on a ucfirst version of the key in
  $wgValidSkinNames but now the value. This means for
  $wgValidSkinNames["monobook"] = "MonoBook"; the skin loader will no longer try
  loading SkinMonobook and will instead load SkinMonoBook.
* $wgMaxUploadSize may now be set to an array to specify the upload size limit
  per upload type.
* $wgAPICacheHelp added in 1.16 is now removed. To disable API help caching, set
  $wgAPICacheHelpTimeout = 0;
* OutputPage::isUserJsAllowed() no longer returns false when scripts are allowed
  by the page, but $wgAllowUserJs is set to false.
* Pure "Skin" class based custom skins are no longer supported, all custom skins
  should be put together using SkinTemplate and BaseTemplate or QuickTemplate.
* The transliteration for passwords in case they were migrated from an old
  Latin-1 install (previous to MediaWiki 1.5) is now only done for wikis with
  $wgLegacyEncoding set.
* (bug 27508) Add $wgSVGMetadataCutoff to limit the maximum amount of an SVG we
  look at when finding metadata to prevent excessive resource usage.
* $wgSysopUserBans and $wgSysopRangeBans (deprecated in 1.17) are now removed.
  Use $wgBlockCIDRLimit = array( 'IPv4' => 43, 'IPv6' => 128 ) to achieve the
  same functionality as $wgSysopRangeBans; you can use the BlockIp hook to
  replicate $wgSysopUserBans functionality.
* The options on the block form have been standardised such that checking a box
  makes the block 'more serious'; so while "check to prevent account creation"
  and "check to enable autoblock" remain the same, "check to allow user-talk
  edit" is reversed to "check to *disable* user-talk edit", and "check to block
  anon-only" becomes "check to block logged-in users too".  The default settings
  remain the same.
* Most of the field names on the Special:Block form have been changed, which
  will probably break screen-scraping bots.
* (bug 26866) The 'trackback' right is no longer granted to sysops by default.
  $wgUseTrackbacks is already false by default.
* (bug 17009) the hiddenStructure CSS class, a highly hackish way of at least
  *appearing* to hide article elements, has been removed.  Use the
  ParserFunctions extension to actually remove unwanted elements from the
  output.
* (bug 14202) $wgUseTeX has been superseded by the Math extension. To re-enable
  math conversion after upgrading, obtain the Math extension from SVN or from
  http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Math and add to LocalSettings.php:
  require_once "$IP/extensions/Math/Math.php";
* $wgProfiler is now a configuration array, see StartProfiler.sample for
  details.
* $wgProfiling has been removed.
* The spyc library is now no longer included in phase3.
* (bug 28343) Unused preferences contextlines/contextchars have been removed
* $wgSkinExtensionFunctions has been removed. Use $wgExtensionFunctions instead.
* $wgProto has been removed. You now only need to set $wgServer to change the
  URL protocol.
* $wgRateLimitsExcludedGroups (deprecated in 1.13) has been removed.
* $wgInputEncoding and $wgOutputEncoding (deprecated in 1.5) have now been removed.
* $wgAllowUserSkin (deprecated in 1.16) has now been removed.
* $wgExtraRandompageSQL (deprecated in 1.16) has now been removed.
* LogReader and LogViewer classes (deprecated in 1.14) have now been removed.
* (bug 26033) Added $wgArticleCountMethod to select the method to use to say
  whether a page is an article or not. $wgUseCommaCount is now deprecated.
* $wgEnableDublinCoreRdf and $wgEnableCreativeCommonsRdf no longer work in core,
  and the functionality has been moved to the relevant extensions. See
  http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:DublinCoreRdf and
  http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CreativeCommonsRdf as appropriate.
* (bug 21107) Split error "customcssjsprotected" into separate messages for JS and CSS
* Removed $wgCheckCopyrightUpload from DefaultSettings, since the relevant feature
  was removed in about 1.5.
* LogPageValidTypes, LogPageLogName, LogPageLogHeader and LogPageActionText
  hooks have been removed.
* New hook "Collation::factory" to allow extensions to create custom
  category collations.
* $wgGroupPermissions now supports per namespace permissions.
* $wgEnableAutoRotation enables or disables auto-rotation. Leaving it set to
  null will cause MediaWiki to determine if auto-rotation is available.

=== New features in 1.18 ===
* BREAKING CHANGE: action=watch / action=unwatch now requires a token.
* BREAKING CHANGE: Article class hierarchy split into WikiPage (backend).
  and Article (frontend) hierarchies. Several hooks now pass a WikiPage object instead
  of an Article object. These hooks all use an $article paramater as documented in hooks.txt.
  Extensions should be updated to account for this, though most won't require any changes.
* (bug 27860) Minor edit after clicking 'new section' tab
  Now the "This is a minor edit" checkbox is not available when you
  create a page or new section.
* (bug 8130) Query pages should limit to content namespaces, not just main
  namespace.

* New hook ArticlePrepareTextForEdit added, called when preparing text to be
  saved.

  thumbnail.

* Introduced the edittools-upload message, which will be inserted under the
  upload form instead of edittools if available.

  specified a filename without extension.

  safely enabled. A ZIP file reader was added which can scan a ZIP file for

* (bug 28031) Add pageCount support to ArchivedFile.
* (bug 27924) PhpHttpRequest doesn't return response body if HTTP != 200.
* Added hook BitmapHandlerTransform to allow extension to transform a file
  without overriding the entire handler.
* The parser now attempts to output markers for editsection tokens and defer the
  rendering of them post-cache to reduce parser cache fragmentation and ensure
  skin customizability of edit section links.
* (bug 24755) AuthPlugin auto-creation of local accounts can now be aborted by
  other extensions by handling the 'AbortAutoAccount' hook, similar to the
  'AbortNewAccount' triggered by explicit account creations. (They are separate
  to avoid loops and confusion; auth plugins like CentralAuth need to handle
  AbortNewAccount separately.
* Special:ListFiles is now transcludable.
* (bug 13879) Special:Emailuser asks for suitable target user if called without.
* (bug 16956) IPTC and XMP metadata now extracted from images.

* Three new hooks in Special:Undelete, 'UndeleteForm::showHistory',
  'UndeleteForm::showRevision' and 'UndeleteForm::undelete', so that extensions
  may override the usage of PageArchive class and replace it with their own
  class that extends PageArchive.
* (bug 28915) Implement QUnit test suite for MediaWiki JavaScript.
  Also built-in support for distribution through a TestSwarm instance.

  using replication.

  statistics (maintenance/language/transstat.php).

* (bug 16699) {{#language:}} accepts second parameter to specify the language in
  which the language name is wanted. Coverage depends on the cldr extension.
* (bug 15802) An easy way to look up messages: language qqx which returns
  the message keys.
* (bug 29868) Add support for passing parameters to mw.msg in jquery.localize.

  to explicit usergroups. If a group is removed from a user via Special:UserRights,
  it will not automatically be re-added. Configuration is similar to
  $wgAutopromote (see DefaultSettings.php).
* The PerformRetroactiveAutoblock hook was added to allow overriding or complementing
  retroactive autoblock handling. This runs when blocking a user with the 'autoblock' option.

  them (i.e. with array_keys) to get a list of all preferences, then
  $wgDefaultUserOptions should no longer be used as it will contain those set via
  User:getDefaultOptions().
* (bug 30497) Add client-nojs and client-js classes on document element
  to let styles easily hide or show things based on general JS availability.
* (bug 31293) If Special:Userlogin is loaded over HTTPS, display

== MediaWiki 1.17 ==

=== PHP 5.2 now required ==
Since 1.17, the lowest supported version of MediaWiki is now 5.2.3. Please
upgrade PHP if you have not done so prior to upgrading MediaWiki.

=== New installer in 1.17 ===
MediaWiki 1.17 is shipping with a completely redesigned installer to fix
a lot of outstanding bugs, cleanup the code quality, and make it easier to
use. Notably, you can now run upgrades from the web without having to move
LocalSettings.php. Also, configuration script directory has been renamed
from config/ to mw-config/. The specific bugs are listed below in the
general notes.

=== New ResourceLoader in 1.17 ===
MediaWiki 1.17 ships with a ResourceLoader which combines and minifies css and
javascript attached to the page. They are served from the new entry point load.php
If the page is served with the &debug=true parameter, the non-minified files
are used instead.

=== Configuration changes in 1.17 ===
* DatabaseFunctions.php that was needed for compatibility with pre-1.3
  extensions has been removed.
* $wgAllowImageTag can be set to true to whitelist the <img> tag in wikitext.
* (bug 12797) Add $wgGalleryOptions for adjusting of default gallery display
  options.
* $wgAllowUserCssPrefs option allows disabling CSS-based preferences; which can
  improve page loading speed.
* (bug 22858) $wgLocalStylePath is by default set to the same value as
  $wgStylePath but should never point to a different domain than the site is
  on, allowing skins to use .htc files which are not cross-domain friendly.
* (bug 20193) Added $wgVectorShowVariantName global configuration variable
  which causes Vector to render the variants drop-down menu with a label
  showing the current variant name. This is off by default, pending further
  research into its user experience implications.
* XmlFunctions.php has been removed. Use the Xml or Html classes as appropriate.
* Added $wgSQLMode for setting database SQL modes - either performance (null)
  or other reasons (such as enabling stricter checks)
* $wgFileStore has been deprecated. The only usage $wgFileStore['deleted'] has
  been turned into $wgDeletedDirectory.
* $wgDeletedDirectory has been added to specify what directory to place deleted
  uploads in.
* IBM DB2 database no longer uses the db specific $wgDBport_db2 variable but the
  normal $wgDBport.
* The upload link for missing files can now be set separately from the
  navigation link with $wgUploadMissingFileUrl.
* $wgCategoryPrefixedDefaultSortkey was removed and is now always false.  This
  provides more sensible sorting behavior for categories.
* Removed unused globals: $wgEnableSerializedMessages, $wgCheckSerialized,
  $wgUseMemCached, $wgDisableSearchContext, $wgColorErrors,
  $wgUseZhdaemon, $wgZhdaemonHost and $wgZhdaemonPort.
* (bug 24408) The include_path is not modified in the default LocalSettings.php
* $wgVectorExtraStyles was removed, and is no longer in use.
* $wgLoadScript was added to specify alternative locations for ResourceLoader
  requests.
* $wgResourceLoaderMaxage was added to specify maxage and smaxage times for
  responses from ResourceLoader based on whether the request's URL contained a
  version parameter or not.
* $wgResourceLoaderDebug was added to specify the default state of debug mode;
  this will still be overridden with the debug URL parameter a la
  $wgLanguageCode.
* $wgResourceLoaderInlinePrivateModules was added to specify whether private
  modules such as user.options should be embedded in the HTML output or
  delivered through a resource loader request, which bypasses server cache (like
  squid) and checks the user parameter against $wgUser. The former adds more
  data to all pages, while the latter adds a request which cannot be cached
  server side.
* Removed $wgUpdates for database updates; extension should use
  DatabaseUpdater::addExtensionUpdate().
* Removed $wgServerName. It doesn't need to be set anymore and is no longer
  available as input for other configuration items, either.
* Remove $wgRemoteUploads. It was not well supported and superseded by
  $wgUploadNavigationUrl.
* (bug 198) $wgUpgradeKey allows unlocking the web installer for upgrades
  without having to move LocalSettings.php
* The FailFunction "error handling" method has now been removed
* $wgAdditionalMailParams added to allow setting extra options to mail() calls.
* $wgSecureLogin to optionaly login using HTTPS
* (bug 25728) Added $wgPasswordSenderName to allow customise the name associed
  with $wgPasswordSender
* Sysops now have the "suppressredirect" right by default
* (bug 22463) $wgFooterIcons added to allow configuration of the icons shown in
  the footers of skins.
* $wgFileCacheDepth can be used to set the depth of the subdirectory hierarchy
  used for the file cache. Default value is 2, which matches former behavior
* It's no longer necessary for LocalSettings.php to include DefaultSettings.php.
* It's no longer necessary to set $wgCacheEpoch to the file modification time
  of LocalSettings.php, in LocalSettings.php itself. Instead, this is done
  automatically if $wgInvalidateCacheOnLocalSettingsChange is true (which is
  the default).
* (bug 26253) $wgPostCommitUpdateList has been removed

=== New features in 1.17 ===
* (bug 10183) Users can now add personal styles and scripts to all skins via
  User:<name>/common.css and /common.js (if user css/js is enabled).
* (bug 22748) Add anchors on Special:ListGroupRights.
* (bug 21981) Add parameter 'showfilename' to <gallery> to automatically

  if they fix <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=516293>.
* Support git:// and mms:// protocols by default for external links.
* (bug 15810) Blocked admins can no longer unblock themselves without the
  'unblockself' permission (which they have by default).
* (bug 18499) Added "enhanced" URL parameter to switch between old and enhanced
  changes list.
* (bug 22925) "sp-contributions-blocked-notice-anon" message now displayed when
  viewing contributions of a blocked IP address.
* (bug 22474) {{urlencode:}} now takes an optional second paramter for type of
  escaping.

== MediaWiki 1.16 ==

* $wgSessionHandler can be used to configure session.save_handler
* $wgLocalFileRepo/$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
  needs to be set explicitly, or $wgCacheDirectory needs to be set instead.
* $wgLocalMessageCache has been removed. Instead, set $wgUseLocalMessageCache
  to true
* Removed $wgEnableSerializedMessages and $wgCheckSerialized. Similar
  functionality is now available via $wgLocalisationCacheConf.
* $wgMessageCache->addMessages() is deprecated. Messages added via this
  interface will not appear in Special:AllMessages.
* $wgRegisterInternalExternals can be used to record external links pointing
  to same server
* (bug 19907) $wgCrossSiteAJAXdomains and $wgCrossSiteAJAXdomainExceptions added
  to control which external domains may access the API via cross-site AJAX.
* $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)
* (bug 19646) $wgImgAuthPublicTest added to test to see if img_auth set up
  correctly (img_auth only)

  CIDR ranges for blocking

  file repository

* $wgPreviewOnOpenNamespaces for extensions that create namespaces that behave
  similarly to the category namespace.
* $wgEnableSorbs renamed to $wgDnsBlacklistUrls ($wgEnableSorbs kept for
  backward compatibility)
* $wgUploadNavigationUrl now also affects images inline images that do not
  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
  logging in.

  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

  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:

** The summary attribute has been removed from tables of contents.  summary is
   obsolete in HTML 5 and wasn't useful here anyway.

changes to languages because of Bugzilla reports.

* Swiss Standard German (de-ch) (new)

== MediaWiki 1.14 ==

=== Configuration changes in 1.14 ===

* $wgExemptFromUserRobotsControl is an array of namespaces to be exempt from
  the effect of the new __INDEX__/__NOINDEX__ magic words.  (Default: null, ex-
  empt all content namespaces.)
* $wgForwardSearchUrl has been removed entirely. Documented setting since 1.4
  has been $wgSearchForwardUrl.
* (bug 15080) $wgOverrideSiteFeed has been added. Setting either
  $wgSiteFeed['rss'] or 'atom' to a URL will override the default Recent
  Changes feed that appears on all pages.
* $wgSQLiteDataDirMode has been introduced as the default directory mode for
  SQLite data directories on creation. Note that this setting is separate from
  $wgDirectoryMode, which applies to all normal dirs created by MediaWiki.
* $wgGroupsAddToSelf and $wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf now work more like
  $wgAddGroups and $wgRemoveGroups, where the user must belong to a specified
  group in order to add or remove those groups from themselves.
  Backwards compatibility is maintained.
* $wgRestrictDisplayTitle controls if the use of the {{DISPLAYTITLE}} magic
  word is restricted to titles equivalent to the actual page title. This
  is true per default, but can be set to false to allow any title.
* $wgSpamRegex may now be an array of multiple regular expressions.
* $wgAjaxSearch has been removed; use $wgEnableMWSuggest instead.
* Editing the MediaWiki namespace is now unconditionally restricted to people
  with the editinterface right, configuring this in $wgNamespaceProtection
  is not required.
* $wgAllowExternalImagesFrom may now be an array of multiple strings.
* Introduced $wgEnableImageWhitelist to toggle the on-wiki external image
  whitelist on or off.
* Added $wgRenderHashAppend to append some string to the parser cache and the
  sitenotice cache keys.
* $wgRCChangedSizeThreshold is now a positive integer by default,
* (bug 16006) $wgEnableWriteAPI is now true by default. Authorized can perform
  write actions using the API.
* Added $wgRC2UDPInterwikiPrefix which adds an interwiki prefix
  ($wgLocalInterwiki) onto the page names in the UDP feed.
* Added $wgAllowUserSkin to let the wiki's owner disable user selectable skins
  on the wiki. If it's set to false, then the skin used will *always* be
  $wgDefaultSkin.
* Added $wgEnotifUseRealName, which allows UserMailer to send out e-mails based
  on the user's real name if one is set. Defaults to false (use the username)
* Removed the 'apiThumbCacheDir' option from $wgForeignFileRepos (only used in
  ForeignAPIRepo)
* (bug 44) Image namespace and accompanying talk namespace renamed to File.
  For backward compatibility purposes, Image still works. External tools may
  need to be updated.
* The constants NS_FILE and NS_FILE_TALK can now be used instead of NS_IMAGE and
  NS_IMAGE_TALK.  The old constants are retained as aliases for compatibility,
  and should still be used in code meant to be compatible with v1.13 or older.
* MediaWiki can be forced to use private IPs forwarded by a proxy server by
  using $wgUsePrivateIPs.
* The 'BeforeWatchlist' hook has been removed due to internal changes in
  Special:Watchlist. 'SpecialWatchlistQuery' should now be used by extensions
  to customize the watchlist database query.

=== Migrated extensions ===
The following extensions are migrated into MediaWiki 1.14:

* Special:DeletedContributions to show deleted user contributions (was
  extension DeletedContributions)
* Special:Log/newusers recording new users (was extension Newuserlog)
* Special:LinkSearch to search for external links (was extension LinkSearch)
* RenderHash
* NoMoveUserPages
* UniversalEditButton

=== New features in 1.14 ===

* New URL syntaxes for Special:ListUsers - 'Special:ListUsers/USER' and
  'Special:ListUsers/GROUP/USER', in addition to the older syntax
  'Special:ListUsers/GROUP' where GROUP is a valid group name.
* Configurable per-namespace and per-page notices for the edit form,
  respectively MediaWiki:Editnotice-# where # is the namespace number, and
  MediaWiki:Editnotice-#-PAGENAME where # is the page's namespace number and
  PAGENAME is the page name minus the namespace prefix.
* (bug 8068) New __INDEX__ and __NOINDEX__ magic words allow user control of
  search engine indexing on a per-article basis.
* Handheld stylesheet options
* Added 'DoEditSectionLink' hook as a cleaner unified version of the old
  'EditSectionLink' and 'EditSectionLinkForOther' hooks.  Note that the
  'EditSectionLinkForOther' hook has been removed, but 'EditSectionLink' is
  run in all cases instead, so extensions using the old hooks should still work
  if they ran roughly the same code for both hooks (as is almost certain).
* Signature (~~~~) "cleaning", i.e. template removal, can be disabled with
  $wgCleanSignatures=false
* Extensions can use the SkinBuildSidebar hook to modify the content of the
  sidebar and add custom portlets to it

  added 'convertlink=no|yes' on GET requests whether have the link titles
  being converted or not
* (bug 14921) Special:Contributions/: add user name to <title>
  Patch by Emufarmers
* Unescape more "safe" characters when producing URLs, for added prettiness
* Introduced a new hook 'SkinAfterContent' that allows extensions to add text
  after the page content and article metadata. Updated all skins and skin
  templates to work with that hook.
* (bug 14929) removeUnusedAccounts.php now supports 'ignore-touched' and
  'ignore-groups'. Patch by Louperivois
* (bug 15127) Work around minor display glitch in Opera.

  so-called GIFAR vulnerability.
* (bug 15141) Give ability to only list protected pages with the cascading
  option enabled on Special:ProtectedPages
* (bug 15157) Special:Watchlist has the same options as Special:Watchlist:

  groups may be added or removed via the Special:UserRights interface.

== MediaWiki 1.13 ==

== Changes since 1.13.2 ==

David Remahl of Apple's Product Security team has identified a number of
security issues in previous releases of MediaWiki. Subsequent analysis by the
MediaWiki development team expanded the scope of these vulnerabilities. The
issues with a significant impact are as follows:

* An XSS vulnerability affecting all MediaWiki installations between 1.13.0 and
  1.13.2. [CVE-2008-5249]
* A local script injection vulnerability affecting Internet Explorer clients for
  all MediaWiki installations with uploads enabled. [CVE-2008-5250]
* A local script injection vulnerability affecting clients with SVG scripting
  capability (such as Firefox 1.5+), for all MediaWiki installations with SVG
  uploads enabled. [CVE-2008-5250]
* A CSRF vulnerability affecting the Special:Import feature, for all MediaWiki
  installations since the feature was introduced in 1.3.0. [CVE-2008-5252]

XSS (cross-site scripting) vulnerabilities allow an attacker to steal an
authorised user's login session, and to act as that user on the wiki. The
authorised user must visit a web page controlled by the attacker in order to
activate the attack. Intranet wikis are vulnerable if the attacker can
determine the intranet URL.

Local script injection vulnerabilities are like XSS vulnerabilities, except
that the attacker must have an account on the local wiki, and there is no
external site involved. The attacker uploads a script to the wiki, which another
user is tricked into executing, with the effect that the attacker is able to act
as the privileged user.

CSRF vulnerabilities allow an attacker to act as an authorised user on the wiki,
but unlike an XSS vulnerability, the attacker can only act as the user in a
specific and restricted way. The present CSRF vulnerability allows pages to be
edited, with forged revision histories. Like an XSS vulnerability, the
authorised user must visit the malicious web page to activate the attack.

These four vulnerabilities are all fixed in this release.

David Remahl also reminded us of some security-related configuration issues:

* By default, MediaWiki stores a backup of deleted images in the images/deleted
  directory. If you do not want these images to be publically accessible, make
  sure this directory is not accessible from the web. MediaWiki takes some steps
  to avoid leaking these images, but these measures are not perfect.
* Set display_errors=off in your php.ini to avoid path disclosure via PHP fatal
  errors. This is the default on most shared web hosts.
* Enabling MediaWiki's debugging features, such as $wgShowExceptionDetails, may
  lead to path disclosure.

Other changes in this release:

* Avoid fatal error in profileinfo.php when not configured.
* Add a .htaccess to deleted images directory for additional protection against
  exposure of deleted files with known SHA-1 hashes on default installations.
* Avoid streaming uploaded files to the user via index.php. This allows
  security-conscious users to serve uploaded files via a different domain, and
  thus client-side scripts executed from that domain cannot access the login
  cookies. Affects Special:Undelete, img_auth.php and thumb.php.
* When streaming files via index.php, use the MIME type detected from the
  file extension, not from the data. This reduces the XSS attack surface.
* Blacklist redirects via Special:Filepath. Such redirects exacerbate any

== MediaWiki 1.12 ==

This is the Winter 2007 quarterly release.

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: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download_from_SVN

=== Configuration changes in 1.12 ===
* Marking edits as bot edits with Special:Contributions?bot=1 now requires the
  markbotedit permission, rather than the rollback permission previously used.
  This permission is assigned by default to the sysop group.
* MediaWiki now checks if serialized files are out of date. New configuration
  variable $wgCheckSerialized can be set to false to enable old behavior (i.e.
  to not check and assume they are always up to date)
* The rollback permission can now be rate-limited using the normal mechanism.
* New configuration variable $wgExtraLanguageNames
* Behaviour of $wgAddGroups and $wgRemoveGroups changed. New behaviour:
* * Granting the userrights privilege allows arbitrary changing of rights.
* * Without the userrights privilege, a user will be able to add and/or
     remove the groups specified in $wgAddGroups and $wgRemoveGroups for
     any groups they are in.
* New permission userrights-interwiki for changing user rights on foreign wikis.
* $wgImplicitGroups for groups that are hidden from Special:Listusers, etc.
* $wgAutopromote: automatically promote users who match specified criteria
* $wgGroupsAddToSelf, $wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf: allow users to add or remove
  themselves from specified groups via Special:Userrights.
* When $wgUseTidy has been enabled, PHP's Tidy module is now used if it is
  present, in preference to an external Tidy executable which may or may not
  be present. To force use of external Tidy even when the PHP module is
  available, set $wgTidyInternal to false.


=== New features in 1.12 ===
* (bug 10735) Add a warning for non-descriptive filenames at Special:Upload
* Add {{filepath:}} parser function to get full path to an uploaded file,
  complementing {{fullurl:}} for pages.
* (bug 11136) If using Postgres, search path is explicitly set if wgDBmwschema
  is not set to 'mediawiki', allowing multiple mediawiki instances per user.

* (bug 11353) Add ability to retrieve raw section content via action=raw

* isValidEmailAddr hook added to User method of that name, to allow, e.g., re-
  stricting e-mail addresses to a specific domain

  click it. Existing clear links will fall back to the raw editor, which is
  very easy to clear your watchlist with.

  on Special:Newpages
* LogLine hook added to allow formatting custom entries in Special:Log.

  fails
  because it is part of a blocked range.

  created by another user

* (bug 12486) Protected titles now give a warning for privileged editors.
* (bug 9939) Special:Search now sets focus to search input box when no existing
  search is active
* For Special:Userrights, use GET instead of POST to search for users.
* Allow subpage syntax for Special:Userrights, i.e., Special:Userrights/Name.
* When submitting changes on Special:Userrights, show the full form again, not
  just the search box.

* (bug 11897) Add alias [[Special:CreateAccount]] & [[Special:Userlogin/signup]]
  for Special:Userlogin?type=signup
* (bug 12214) Add a predefined list of delete reasons to the file deletion form
* Merged backends for OpenSearch suggestions and AJAX search.

== Parser changes in 1.12 ==

For help with migration to the MediaWiki 1.12 parser, please visit:

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Migration_to_the_new_preprocessor

The parser pass order has changed from

   * Extension tag strip and render
   * HTML normalisation and security
   * Template expansion
   * Main section...

to

   * Template and extension tag parse to intermediate representation
   * Template expansion and extension rendering
   * HTML normalisation and security
   * Main section...

The main effect of this for the user is that the rules for uncovered syntax
have changed.

Uncovered main-pass syntax, such as HTML tags, are now generally valid, whereas
previously in some cases they were escaped. For example, you could have "<ta" in
one template, and "ble>" in another template, and put them together to make a
valid <table> tag. Previously the result would have been "&lt;table&gt;".

Uncovered preprocessor syntax is generally not recognised. For example, if you
have "{{a" in Template:A and "b}}" in Template:B, then "{{a}}{{b}}" will be
converted to a literal "{{ab}}" rather than the contents of Template:Ab. This
was the case previously in HTML output mode, and is now uniformly the case in
the other modes as well. HTML-style comments uncovered by template expansion
will not be recognised by the preprocessor and hence will not prevent template
expansion within them, but they will be stripped by the following HTML security
pass.

Bug 5678 has been fixed. This has a number of user-visible effects related to
the removal of this double-parse. Please see the wiki page for examples.

Message transformation mode has been removed, and replaced with "preprocess"
mode. This means that some MediaWiki namespace messages may need to be updated,
especially ones which took advantage of the terribly counterintuitive behaviour
of the former message mode.

The header identification routines for section edit and for numbering section
edit links have been merged. This removes a significant failure mode and fixes a
whole category of bugs (tracked by bug #4899). Wikitext headings uncovered by
template expansion will still be rendered into a heading tag, and will get an
entry in the TOC, but will not have a section edit link. HTML-style headings
will also not have a section edit link. Valid wikitext headings present in the
template source text will get a template section edit link. This is a major
break from previous behaviour, but I believe the effects are almost entirely
beneficial.

The main motivation for making these changes was performance. The new two-pass
preprocessor can skip "dead branches" in template expansion, such as unfollowed
#switch cases and unused defaults for template arguments. This provides a
significant performance improvement in template-heavy test cases taken from
Wikipedia. Parser function hooks can participate in this performance improvement
by using the new SFH_OBJECT_ARGS flag during registration.

The pre-expand include size limit has been removed, since there's no efficient
way to calculate such a figure, and it would now be meaningless for performance
anyway. The "preprocessor node count" takes its place, with a generous default
limit.

The context in which XML-style extension tags are called has changed, so
extensions which make use of the parser state may need compatibility changes.

The new preprocessor syntax has been documented in Backus-Naur Form at:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Preprocessor_ABNF

The ExpandTemplates extension now has the ability to generate an XML parse
tree from wikitext source. This parse tree corresponds closely to the grammar
documented on that page.

== 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: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download_from_SVN

== 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

== MediaWiki 1.10 ==

This is the Spring 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: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download_from_SVN

== Configuration changes ==

* A new switch $wgCommandLineDarkBg used by maintenance scripts (parserTests.php).
  It lets you specify if your terminal use a dark background, the colorized
  output will be made lighter making things easier to read.
* The minimum permissions needed to edit a page in each namespace can now be
  customized via the $wgNamespaceProtection array. By default, editing pages in
  the MediaWiki namespace requires "editinterface" permission, as before.
* Allow restriction of autoconfirmed permission by edit count. New global setting
  $wgAutoConfirmCount (defaulting to zero, naturally).
* Added rate limiter for Special:Emailuser
* Private logs can now be created using $wgLogRestrictions
* (Bug 8590) limited HTML is now always enabled ($wgUserHtml = true).

  into a page protected with this option enabled

  overridden by adding diffonly=1 or diffonly=0 to the URL of the diff page

  format as block expiry dates. Existing protections are assumed to be infinite,
  as are protections made with the new field left blank.

  keywords
* (bug 6987) Allow perrow, widths, and heights attributes for <gallery>

  be disabled in other languages too (e.g. if the user specifies uselang=fr).
* Sort log types in Special:Log
* Added a classname ("mw-toolbar-editbutton") and unique IDs to the edit
  toolbar buttons

  to forestall additional UTF-7-autodetect XSS issues. PHP sends only
  'text/html' by default when the script didn't specify more details,
  which some inconsiderate browsers consider a license to autodetect
  the deadly, hard-to-escape UTF-7.
    This fixes an issue with the Ajax interface error message on MSIE when
  $wgUseAjax is enabled (not default configuration); this UTF-7 variant
  on a previously fixed attack vector was discovered by Moshe BA from BugSec:
  http://www.bugsec.com/articles.php?Security=24
* Trackback responses now specify XML content type
* (bug 9044) Send a comment with action=raw pages in CSS/JS output mode

== Compatibility ==

MediaWiki 1.10 requires PHP 5 (5.1 recommended). PHP 4 is no longer supported.

PHP 5.0.x fails on 64-bit systems due to serious bugs with array processing:
http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=34879
Upgrade affected systems to PHP 5.1 or higher.

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.


== Upgrading ==

1.10 has several database changes since 1.9, and will not work without schema
updates.

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.

= 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.

  The link leads to a "Show Changes" page showing what will be done to undo the
  edit.
* Fix display of link in "already rolled back" message for image/category pages
* (bug 6016) Left-aligned images should stack vertically, like right-aligned
  images, not horizontally.

* (bug 8083) Applied patch for sk localisation
* Add a backslash character to the edit token, to prevent edits via certain
  broken proxies that mangle such characters in form submissions
* (bug 7461) Allow overwriting pages using importTextFile.php
* (bug 7946) importTextFile.php doesn't perform pre-save transform
* (bug 8117) {{REVISIONTIMESTAMP}} showed weird default if $wgLocalTZoffset set;
  now uses current time for previews and if timestamp can't be loaded from DB
* {{REVISIONTIMESTAMP}} now uses site local timezone instead of user timezone
  to ensure consistent behavior

  to be switched on and off ($wgBreakFrames). Off by default.

* Removed a redundant <strong> tag from diff pages that was causing display issues for some users
* (bug 8203) The keyboard shortcut for "log out" was removed, because users were pressing it
  when they intended to press the shortcut for "preview".

  buffers for HTTP 304 responses, StreamFile, and Special:Export.
  Duplicated code merged into wfResetOutputBuffers() and wfClearOutputBuffers()
* Special:AllPages : 'next page' link now point to the first title of the next
  chunk instead of pointing to the last title of current chunk.
* (bug 4673) Special:AllPages : add a 'previous' link (new message 'prevpage')
* (bug 8121) wfRandom() was not between 0 and 1
* Add static method Parser::createAssocArgs($args), so parser functions can
  use the same code to parse arguments as the templates do.
* Change behavior of logins using the temporary e-mailed password (as stored
  in user_newpassword hash field). Instead of just logging in silently and
  leaving the previous user_password field in place indefinitely, the user
  is now prompted to set a new password.

  The password-changing form is at Special:Resetpass; currently it's only
  usable for changing from the temporary password during login, but it
  could perhaps be generalized, replacing the subform in preferences.

  Once the new password is set successfully, the temporary password is wiped
  so it cannot be used to login a second time, and the login process
  is completed.
* Suppress 'mail new password' button on login form if $wgAuth forbids
  changing user passwords; it wouldn't work very well...
* Consolidate password length checks and $wgAuth manipulation into
  User::setPassword() to avoid duplicate code in different places
  that set passwords.
* User::setPassword() now throws PasswordError exceptions if the password
  is illegal or cannot be set via $wgAuth. These can be caught and a human-
  readable error message displayed by UI code.
* Added Title::isSubpage()
* (bug 8241) Don't consider user pages of User:Foo.css to be CSS subpages
* Set an explicit class on framed thumbnail inner divs and images, changed some
  CSS to use these instead of using descendent selectors.
* Accept null parameter to User::setPassword() as indicating the password
  field should be cleared to an unusable state. Login will only be possible
  after the password is reset, for instance by e-mail.
* (bug 6394) Invalidate the password set for "by e-mail" account creations
  to avoid accidental empty password creations.
* Made the show change size function work on page moves, page creations, and
  log entries. Also fixed it in the javascript recentchanges.
* (bug 8239) correctly get 50 new contributions when clicking '(50 next)'
* (bug 2259) Fix old regression where e-mail addresses were no longer
  confirmed on login with mailed password.
* Add a notification about the confirmation mail sent during account
  creation, so people don't immediately go off to request a second one.
* Add a warning on Special:Confirmemail if a code was already sent and has
  not yet expired.
* Add user_editcount field to provide data for heuristics on account use.
  Incremented on edit, with lazy initialization from past revision data.
  Can batch-initialize with maintenance/initEditCount.php (not yet friendly
  to replication environments, this will do all accounts in one query).
* Allow raw SQL subsections in Database::update() SET portion as well as
  for WHERE portion. Handy for increments and such.
* User::getOption now accept a default value to override default user values
  this makes it consistent with WebRequest::get* methods. Corrected code in
  various places accordingly.
* (bug 8264) Fix JavaScript global vars for XHTML mode
* Make $wgSiteNotice value wikitext again, for consistency with editable
  MediaWiki:Sitenotice and MediaWiki:Anonnotice.
* (bug 8044) When redirecting from the canonical name of the special page
  to the localised one, parameters/subpages are omitted
* (bug 8164) Special:Booksources should use GET for form submission

  pages I create" options now accessible under "Watchlist" options
* (bug 8153) <nowiki> doesn't work in site notice
* (bug 6690) wfMsgNoTrans() transforms messages
* (bug 8274) Wrap edit tools in a <div> with a specified class
* Detect PHP 5.0.x 64-bit bug and abort in WebStart.php; too many things break
  mysteriously otherwise (detection code copied from install-utils.inc)
* (bug 8295) Change handling of <center> tags in doBlockLevels() to match that
  of <div>
* (bug 8110) Make magic ISBN linking stricter: only match ten-digit sequences
  (plus optional ISBN-13 prefix) with no immediately following alphanumeric
  character, disallow multiple consecutive internal redirects
* (bug 2785) Accept optional colon prefix in links when formatting comments
* Don't show "you can view and copy the source of this page" message for
  pages which don't exist
* (bug 8310) Blank line added to top of 'post' when page is blank
* (bug 8109) Template parameters ignored in "recentchangestext"
* Gracefully skip redirect-to-fragment on WebKit versions less than 420;
  it messes up on current versions of Safari but is ok in the latest
  nightlies. Checking the version number will allow it to automatically
  work when new releases of Safari appear.
* Fix regression in thumb styles; size and padding didn't match with
  new arrangement.
* (bug 8333) Fix quick user data update on login password change on
  replication database setups. User data is now pulled from master
  instead of slave in User::loadFromDatabase, ensuring that it is
  fresh and accurate when read and then saved back into cache.
  This was breaking with the Special:Rename operation which
  automatically logs the user in with the new password after changing
  it; pulling from slave meant the record was often not the updated
  one.
* (bug 8335) Set image width to the first valid parameter found.
* (bug 8350) Fix watchlist viewing bug when using Postgres.
* (bug 6603) When warning about invalid file extensions, output the bit
  of the extension we actually checked

  with MySQL's strict mode, often enabled by the Windows installer.
  The defaults are ignored anyway when strict mode is off...
* (bug 7685) Use explicit values for ar_text and ar_flags when deleting,
  for better compatibility with MySQL's strict mode
* Update default interwiki values to reflect changed location of ursine:
* (bug 5411) Remove autopatrol preference
* Users who have the "autopatrol" permission will have their edits marked as
  patrolled automatically
* Users who do not have the "autopatrol" permission will no longer be able
  to mark their own edits as patrolled
* Introduce 'PingLimiter' hook; see docs/hooks.txt for more information

* (bug 371) Remove alt text for "Enlarge" icon on thumbnails
* Initialize user_editcount to 0 instead of NULL for newly created accounts
* (bug 3696) Strip LRM and RLM characters from titles to work around the
  problem some people have where titles cut-and-pasted from lists include
  the bidi override characters appended to the lists.
  A more thorough blacklist for forbidden and translatable characters would
  be wise, though, as might a cleaner method for the lists in the first place.
* Fix regression in email password resets on read-restricted sites
* Set tabindex on fields in deletion form so you don't have to tab through
  the links in the sitenotice
* (bug 8271) Show full time and date on viewer for individual deleted
  revisions

* (bug 7612) Remove superfluous link to Special:Categories from result items
  on Special:Mostcategories
* {{PLURAL:}} now handles formatted numbers correctly
* (bug 8331) Added the change size value to watchlists; therefore made
  watchlists use RecentChange::newFromRow() instead of newFromCurRow()
* (bug 8351) Fix undo for simple reverts
* (bug 6856) User::clearNotification() does not respect read-only mode
* (bug 6853) Use a checkbox on the installer form to indicate that a superuser
  account should be used; this is clearer than the old check which relied on
  the password never being an obscure value
* Remove old unused watchlist cache, which was a leftover from the old schema
  where watchlists were more expensive to generate
* Minor cosmetic changes to Special:Userrights
* Added wgCanonicalSpecialPageName to JavaScript variables
* Fix image deleting when using Postgres.

* Added basic parser tests for language variants
* Enable selflinks and categories to be written in some of the language variants
* Prevent conversion of JavaScript code in language variants
* Output software version number in maintenance/parserTests.php
* (bug 7169) Use Ajax to watch/unwatch articles if enabled
* Make variant table caching a little more robust, using main language code
  in cache key. Probably this is still a bit wonky, though. Was breaking
  parser tests when Chinese tables were getting loaded into Serbian code.
* (bug 8380) Be nicer about blank lines in deleteBatch.php
* (bug 8401) Fix regression in SORBS lookup for some DNS setups
* Use raw file descriptor in posix_isatty() check to avoid warning on
  Linux systems with at least some versions of PHP

  template list. Patch by Fyren, with i18n naming tweak.
* Fix for interwiki transclusion where target wiki uses query string for title
* Resolve namespaces on interwiki Title objects using canonical namespace names
  if possible (should not happen, though, outside interwiki transclusion... and
  maybe not even then, but it does)
* (bug 8447) Fix SQL typo breaking non-default $wgHitcounterUpdateFreq
* Do not allow previews of deleted images to be cached
* Add global variable $wgDefaultLanguageVariant used to set the default language
  variant of a wiki to something different than the main language code

  preferred, utilize it for more parser tests of language variants code
* (bug 6503) Fix bug that stopped certain irrelevant links from being hidden
  for printing
* Avoid PHP warning in Creative Commons metadata when a creative commons
  license is not actually set up

== 1.8 Compatibility changes ==

=== Zend Optimizer ===

A bug in some versions of PHP 5 and Zend Optimizer which was triggered under
MediaWiki 1.8.x has been worked around by disabling some internal debugging
features when Zend Optimizer is loaded. This should solve some common
"blank page" problems.

=== PHP 5.0 64-bit ===

MediaWiki now checks for a condition where PHP 5.0.x corrupts array data
on 64-bit systems and warns you to upgrade PHP to solve the problem. This
bug causes Special: pages to fail on affected systems under MediaWiki 1.8
and higher, and subtler data corruption on earlier versions.

The only known workaround is to upgrade PHP to 5.1 or later, which you
probably should do anyway for security reasons!

=== MySQL 5 ===

MediaWiki should now install and run correctly on MySQL 5.0 and higher when
MySQL's "strict mode" is enabled. (This is now the default for many Windows
installations, though it seems to remain off by default on Unix.)

This fixes errors about "cannot default default value for BLOB/TEXT fields".

=== ImageMagick ===

Note that ImageMagick older than 6.x may no longer work for image resizing
due to use of the -thumbnail option.


== 1.8 Behavior changes ==

=== Localized special pages ===

The names of Special: pages can now be localized, so links and URLs to them
are more legible in languages that aren't English.

Not all languages have included localized names yet.

=== E-mail password ===

Users are now required to set a new password for themselves when they first
log in with a newly generated e-mailed password.

Requesting passwords frequently is prevented to reduce abusive mailbombing.

=== Undo revision ===

An "undo" link now appears in diff view for easier reverting of older edits.
When GNU diff3 is available for edit conflict merging, this can make it much
easier to "undo" the changes of an older edit when there are surrounding
changes elsewhere in the page.

The changes must be manually reviewed and approved, as with conventional
full-revision reverts.

=== Blocking ===

User blocks can be set to disable the automatic blocking of IP addresses the
account logs in with.


== 1.8 Database changes ==

* new 'redirect' table stores data on page redirects
* new 'querycachetwo' table used for some cached special pages
* 'ipblocks' table adds 'ipb_enable_autoblock'
* 'recentchanges' table adds 'rc_old_len', 'rc_new_len' for size tracking
* 'user' table has added 'user_newpass_time' and 'user_editcount' fields
* some indexes have been updated on 'recentchanges'

== 1.8 Configuration changes ==

Several configuration options have changed since 1.8:

=== $wgEnableAPI ===

The experimental machine API interface is now enabled by default, read-only.
You can disable it by setting $wgEnableAPI = false; in LocalSettings.php.

=== $wgPathInfo ===

The use of PATH_INFO (the text after the script name in 'index.php/Blah')
is controlled by the $wgUsePathInfo setting. This is now explicitly disabled
for CGI, apache2filter, and ISAPI configurations of PHP, for more consistency
with the autodetection from the installer.

In some rarer configurations you may have to switch $wgUsePathInfo from false
to true or, perhaps, from true to false to make things work properly if bad
PATH_INFO data comes through the server.

The wiki now tries to detect this condition and should show you an error
message describing what to change instead of sending the browser into an
infinite redirect loop.

=== $wgScript and other path settings ===

The following configuration variables are now automatically set in Setup.php
if they are not overridden in LocalSettings.php:

from $wgScriptPath:
 + $wgScript
 |  \- $wgArticlePath
 + $wgRedirectScript
 + $wgStylePath
 + $wgUploadPath
    \- $wgLogo
     + $wgMathPath

from $IP:
 - $wgStyleDirectory
 + $wgUploadDirectory
   \- $wgMathDirectory
    + $wgTmpDirectory

Newly generated configuration files will by default include only $wgScriptPath
(hardcoded from the installer) and $IP (detected at runtime).

Old configuration files which specify all these values explicitly should
continue to work just fine, but if you use the defaults you can remove them
to reduce clutter.

=== $wgGroupPermissions ===

The sysop group now holds the "autopatrol" and "ipblock-exempt" rights by
default.

"autopatrol" replaces the preference for marking ones own edits patrolled
by default; users holding this permission will automatically have their
edits patrolled, while others cannot mark their own edits as patrolled
even if they have patrolling rights.

"ipblock-exempt" excludes the user from IP blocks; accounts which are blocked
explicitly by name will still be blocked, however. This is given to sysops
to minimize annoyance from accidental "collateral damage"; remember that a
sysop will be able to lift the block if they desire.

The bot group now holds the "nominornewtalk" right. A user with this right
will not trigger new message notifications when making minor edits to user
talk pages. This is meant to minimize annoyance from maintenance bot
processes.

=== $wgUseWatchlistCache ===

Watchlist caching has been removed. The feature was not maintained, and has
been unnecessary since switching to the 'recentchanges' database table
reduced server pressure for Wikipedia's watchlists.

=== $wgBreakFrames ===

MediaWiki in the past attempted to detect when it was embedded in a frameset
and "break out" of it, assuming it to be hostile.

This behavior is now disabled by default, but can be reenabled by setting
$wgBreakFrames to true in LocalSettings.php.


== 1.8 New settings ==

=== $wgVariantArticlePath ===

For languages with script variant support (Chinese, Serbian, and others),
it's possible to use alternate URL paths to select the variant for article
display, setting $wgVariantArticlePath.

Documentation for this setting would be useful.

=== $wgMaxMsgCacheEntrySize ===

The message cache can now skip items larger than a given size; this allows
it to better handle the primary caching case when large CSS and JS blobs are
present.

=== $wgStyleVersion ===

When making significant changes to skin stylesheets and JavaScript files,
you can append a string to this variable to tweak the generated URLs,
forcing newly rendered pages to bring in a fresh version despite server-
or browser-side caching.

Normally this will be set in the course of MediaWiki development, but
if doing development on a custom skin you may wish to poke it as well.

=== $wgRCShowChangedSize ===

Special:Recentchanges and Special:Watchlist now show the number of bytes
added or removed to an article to give an idea of the size of the edit.
This information was previously available only in the IRC update feeds.

To disable this site-wide, set $wgRCShowChangedSize to false.
(Individual users can suppress the data in custom CSS.)

Adjust $wgRCChangedSizeThreshold to trigger highlighting of particularly
large changes.

The formatting of the size figure can be adjusted through the
[[MediaWiki:Rc-change-size]] message.

=== $wgQueryCacheLimit ===

The number of rows stored for "expensive" special pages in miser mode
can now be adjusted up or down from the default 1000.

=== $wgDisableQueryPageUpdate ===

Individual "expensive" special pages can be skipped in processing by
updateSpecialPages if added to this list.

=== $wgSorbsUrl ===

The base hostname for the DNS-based proxy blacklist can now be overridden
when $wgEnableSorbs is set, to use a different blacklist instead of SORBS.
The blacklist would need to respond the same was as SORBS; any positive
response will be taken as a proxy.

=== $wgAjaxWatch ===

Experimental AJAX mode for the watch/unwatch tabs to execute inline.
Does not include the UI messages describing how to reach the watchlist,
so you may not want it on a general-audience site just yet.

=== $wgParserTestFiles ===

MediaWiki's parser test suite can now be expanded with additional test
files. Custom extensions can add their test files to this array, and
they will be run along with the main tests by maintenance/parserTests.php


== 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

  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

  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

* 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

* 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

  themselves. Some minor tweaks to the actual message content.

* 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".

  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)

* 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.

  in this regard due to the bit patterns which make head and tail bytes
  distinct.

  from an extension that changes rendering based on nonstandard options.
* Add 'GetInternalURL' hook to match the GetFullURL and GetLocalURL ones
