MediaWiki 1.35.0-rc.0 is ready for testing

reedy
I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of MediaWiki
1.35.0-rc.0, the first release candidate for 1.35.x, the next LTS version
to replace 1.31 which is due to go end of life in June 2021. Download links
at the end of the e-mail. The tag has been signed and pushed to Git.

Please note that the PHP version requirement has been raised from 7.2.9 in
MediaWiki 1.34 (and 7.0 in MediaWiki 1.31), to 7.2.22 (this may change
further, see below).

This is not a final release and should not be used for production websites.
Known issues are tracked in Phabricator on the release workboard [1]. As
always please do try out the release candidate in a test environment and
report any issues that you discover. Please use the #MW-1.35-Release [2]
tag in Phabricator when reporting issues specific to this release.

It is expected that MediaWiki 1.35 will become final in late August 2020,
and will be supported for 3 years after that.

Known/outstanding issues/things to test:
* It has been proposed to require PHP 7.3 for MediaWiki 1.35, please
discuss at <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T257879>.
* Both the Vector skin and the underlying skin infrastructure are
undergoing numerous changes, so there might be things broken that are
already fixed in master and as such need backporting.
* VisualEditor and Parsoid are now bundled in the tarball and no longer
need a separate nodejs service.
* Watchlist expiry (behind the $wgWatchlistExpiry flag) is currently
experimental. It should be finished for the 1.35.0 final release.
* If you're on Windows and use 7zip, you may experience issues extracting
the tarball. This was noted in the last set of security releases. Try using
a different decompression tool <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T257102>.

Debian packages for 1.35.0-rc.0 are now available for testing as well.
You can get them from Debian experimental[1] or from my web page[2].
These packages should be compatible with at least Debian Buster/10 and
Ubuntu Focal/20.04 LTS.

If you run into any issues that you believe are specific to the Debian
package, you can file them in Phabricator in the MediaWiki-Debian[3]
project.

For more information about Debian packages for MediaWiki, see the
documentation[4].
