MediaWiki 1.13.0 released

Roan Kattouw
MediaWiki 1.13.0 is now available [1].

Selected changes to the API since 1.12.0:
* action=edit has been added. Note that $wgEnableWriteAPI = true; is required for this.
* list=allimages and prop=categoryinfo have been added.
* The blredirect, eiredirect and iuredirect (for list=backlinks, list=embeddedin and list=imageusage) have finally been implemented. Setting these parameters will list links through redirects as well.
* Paging (i.e. limit and continue parameters) have been added to prop=links, prop=templatelinks, prop=langlinks, prop=extlinks, prop=categories and prop=images. These modules no longer return all results by default, but only the first 10 (like list= modules do).
* Invalid titles no longer throw errors but are listed as invalid instead.
* Invalid values for multivalue parameters now throw warnings instead of errors

For a full list of changes to the API, see the section "API changes in 1.13" in the MediaWiki 1.13.0 release notes [2].

Hi,

Two questions about this :
- It doesn't seem to be activated on Wikipedia. Do you have an idea when
it will be available ?
- Is there a proper way to ask the API if action=edit is available (to
make code that can take advantage of it when available, but that use an
other way when not).

TIA,
Nico

No.

The best way would probably be to just go to api.php?action=edit , which
will either throw an error about a missing parameter (which means
action=edit is enabled) or an error saying 'edit' is an unknown value
for 'action' (in which case it's disabled).

action=query&meta=siteinfo will show a writeapi attribute if the write
api is enabled.
