The main install has now also been updated.

Fingers crossed.

At least now we have sans-serif working again in SVGs, although still in Signature Plastics mode :P

How odd, it just re-ran a bulk replace I made, just to Main_page, and specifically a botched replace. Hopefully it's not going to run any more replacements …

I ran runJobs.php before updating as suggested by the manual, to clear any pending jobs. It would all suggest that did nothing and it was not the replacement extension that was bugged in the previous version, but the job runner.

I'm guessing that both were faulty, because page renames were specifically ignored.

RIP page view count :(
Was that something custom we had set up or just not in newer mediawiki?

Fingers crossed this makes the wiki a bit faster now!

I set this configuration variable to the right url:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgServer

This was previously unset. I guess the auto-discovery method doesn't work as well in this version. Untested, let me know if the problem persists.

You guys got this issue in the editor when going 'Special characters' > 'Symbols'?

No idea if it's new or not.

Works fine here with both Firefox and Chromium on Linux. Some pages return non printable chars (Cambodian for example) but I'm presuming this is due to the lack of a suitable typeface installed.

Faster how? DT is way more responsive than my (admittedly not optimized) personal wiki running on localhost! :o

Weird -- I only seem to have the problem in Chrome. I just checked IE and it looks alright there.

Firefox 56 in Windows 10 1709 shows OK for me. No colour symbols though.

The html is fine, my chrome too. You have some kind of font problem in your Chrome.

I've found the Deskthority wiki to really slow down a lot; so far, since the upgrade, it's holding up well speed-wise.

One thing I noticed is that category updating appears to take longer now. You know the drill: you add a page to a yet inexistant category, then go to create the category and you expect to find the page magically listed there as you do so.

Well, now it takes several minutes for the new page to appear. I could swear this was quite faster before?!

If I'm right, then $wgJobRunRate might need adjusting.

I solved two more bugs. One was that new wiki users couldn't login, the other was a bug I found when investigating wgJobRunRate (we have it set to 0 and run it from a cronjob instead, but that job was now crashing).

Let me know if there is any other odd behaviour. Both where related to our phpBB login extension, where I had to put in some work-arounds as the old version didn't run nicely on the new version of mediawiki, and the new version didn't run nicely on our version of phpBB.

I stumbled upon a bug!

When uploading a SVG file, thumbnail generation fails.
Instead of thumbnail, I get the error message "Error creating thumbnail: /bin/bash: /usr/bin/rsvg-convert: No such file or directory".

File in question: wiki/File:MiniDIN-9_Connector_Pinout.svg

I've just tried to create a page with the visual editor, but upon saving I got a "(curl error: 60) Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with given CA certificates". The page was not saved.

The full size images linked on this page are now missing:

wiki/IBM_Model_F

Example:
wiki/File:IBM_Model_F_AT.jpg

Umm… maybe make that *all* images in the Wiki!

Another example:
wiki/OEMMAX_MCK-860

I feel for you! This is the kind of wide scale broken you can rest assured would happen if I ever touched the cogs…

I have noticed that an image is missing: "File:Amiga Mouse.jpg". I didn't upload it, but it has been linked-to from a couple of articles, such as Commodore Amiga.

Maybe something happened in an upgrade because the filename contains a space?
Is there another image that has gone missing?
