Upgrade to 1.19.3 LTS or 1.20.2?
Posted: Fri Jan 18, 2013 12:43 pm
Today I received a notice that one of the sites I'm involved with runs an outdated version of MediaWiki. It couldn't be Pin Eight, because that runs 1.20.2 since I left Go Daddy on December 5. The only other active MediaWiki site where I hold any sort of administrative privilege is wiki.nesdev.com, which is still on 1.18.0. So I'll forward you this mail:
Either way, an upgrade would fix link search.Nemo wrote: Hello,
we have noted that your wiki still runs MediaWiki 1.18.
The current stable release is MediaWiki 1.20.2
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.20>: 1.18 is now
unsupported; it's strongly suggested to update to the last stable
release or to the current long-term support (LTS) release, 1.19.3,
which will be supported until May 2015.
Please see the page
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:U ... upgrade.3F> for
more information on why you should upgrade, instructions, links to
release notes and more resources.
We'd be delighted to hear back from you suggestions on how to make the
upgrade process better, how you would like release notes to be, what
other extensions we should bundle in the tarball and in general what
makes you (not) want to install/upgrade MediaWiki.
