Greeting everyone!

We've just completed an upgrade to MediaWiki 1.23 for all Orain wikis. We discovered a few bugs immediately after the upgrade and have fixed them or currently progressing on them right now. We completed the update with a maximum of 5 minutes downtime for most wikis in the farm. If you find any bugs, please report them here or to an Orain system administrator's talk page (we'll find them either way). Here is a little update of what this update (and updates to extensions) bring:

  • A new special page (Special:ListDuplicatedFiles) is added.
  • Another new special page (Special:TrackingCategories) is added.
  • Another new special page (Special:Diff) is added.
  • New colours and fonts have been introduced as part of Wikimedia's Typography refresh. If you wish to revert this, see the few thousand scripts on Wikimedia doing this.
  • CentralAuth now shows global groups and local user groups on wikis.
  • CentralAuth logs are now publicly viewable on meta.

There are a lot of bug fixes and performance enhancements in this release too with a couple of major security fixes. We hope you are all happy with the new update. The first maintenance release is expected for June 25th. On behalf of Orain sysadmins, John (talk) 23:33, 7 June 2014 (BST)

Aren't there always a few bugs you mention every upgrade? --Tyreek (talk) 01:10, 23 June 2014 (BST)
To be honest; we have experienced no bugs as a result of the upgrade as far as I know. John (talk) 07:13, 23 June 2014 (BST)
We've now updated to MW 1.23.1 which fixes a few security issues and improves general performance. John (talk) 15:06, 29 June 2014 (BST)
