Welcome to our first Release Highlights post on Discussions :)
This week, the teams mostly released bug fixes.
A number of major performance fixes were deployed on the backend, correcting some high error rates and other issues. We have more work on that currently in flight.
An issue that prevented users from renaming any videos has been partially fixed. There will still be an error if the new name contains . , but renaming works in all other cases.
Syntax Highlighting in 2017 Code Editor
Syntax highlighting can once again be turned off in the 2017 code editor - a necessary fix since the highlighter could cause performance issues on long pages.
Special Page Formatting
Bullet list formatting for second level entries has been fixed for special pages, which makes them easier to read again.
Comment Display on Social Activity
An issue was fixed where legacy comments that got migrated to the UCP and then edited, or that received replies, showed in their full length on the social activity feed. Comments created on the UCP are truncated after ~100 characters to keep the feed legible. This is now applied to legacy comments that appear in the feed as well.
LinkSuggest in the 2010 editor works again even when syntax highlighting is enabled.
Needs More Polish, Yes?
Page titles containing Polish characters that broke post migration and rendered links invalid have been restored.
EDIT: Next Week...
We have a bunch of fixes related to galleries and images in infoboxes. They did not make the cutoff for today's release, so they'll be deployed on Tuesday. Update: Delayed to Thursday's release due to platform crash in today's release.
And last but not least...
This is Louie. He lives with me now.
