  1. Wikisource Export 2.0

    By .

    The new version of Wikisource Export has been released. The main user-facing improvement is a wider selection of fonts, but there's been lots of work done on the back end (we migrated it to Symfony).

  2. Community Wishlist Survey 2021

    By .

    There are currently 285 proposals in this year's Wishlist Survey: https://w.wiki/oB7 This is more than ever before! Which is great, but there's lots to get through (I'm reading all of them). Some are terrific, some are huge, some are simple, and they're all a fascinating insight into how people work with Wikimedia wikis and what difficulties they feel. I'm really happy to be working on this.

  3. Another year of WMAU tech stuff

    By .

    The Wikimedia Australia AGM was yesterday, and I'm signed up for another 12 months of being the tech nerd on the Committee, running the wikis and whatnot. I quite like doing it, although I'm not always very good at keeping up to date with everything — it's nice to run a MediaWiki installation outside of the WMF world, just to have a feel of what it's like and what annoyances are felt. I'm going to try to improve things this year (better mobile view; stats reporting maybe; and generally keeping everyone up to date with things).
