Notable changes

New functionalities and extensions

  • PageAssignments: Assign individual users or whole groups to pages, e.g. as responsible editors.
    Note: this extension supersedes ResponsibleEditors.
  • Showtime: an integrated HTML video player for your wiki.

New features

  • Farming: add metadata like descriptions and tags, disable old wikis, organize wikis in groups. We also added a central search across all farmed wikis.
  • Namespace-specific notifications: notifications are now much more configurable. Get notified about changes in the wiki on a namespace basis.
  • Disable users: Instead of user deletion, you can now disable the users while keeping their full record.
  • ReadConfirmation: Ask for confirmation that an article was read by certain users
  • Bookmaker: Use the More menu to add pages directly to an existing book

  • Track usage statistics: know how often a certain feature is used in your wiki.
  • Improvements of the user experience: confirmation dialogues are more unobtrusive now.
  • FlexiSkin: Manage uploaded images.
