Briefly noted

Brief news updates:

  • The MediaWiki engine for all the subject wikis was upgraded to MediaWiki 1.16.4, a security release, on April 17. See the security release notes.

  • As I noted in a buzz, a reply to a Math Overflow question (admittedly not a very difficult one) refers to Groupprops in a cool manner.

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is working on a simple survey tool. If well built, this could serve to replace the current SurveyMonkey-based single question surveys (though I’ll be using SurveyMonkey for longer surveys).

  • MediaWiki 1.17 is on its way — the wikis will be upgraded once an official release candidate is available.
