RevisionSlider will become a default feature tomorrow

- my apologies for cross-posting -

Hey all,

tomorrow the RevisionSlider [1] will be available as a default feature for
all users on all wikis. The RevisionSlider adds a slider view to the diff
page so that you can easily move between revisions. The slider view is
collapsed by default, and will load by clicking on it. It can also be
turned off entirely in the user preferences. The RevisionSlider has been a
default feature on German, Arabic and Hebrew Wikipedia for 6 months and a
beta feature on all wikis for 8 months. In addition to the users of the
default feature, the extension is used by more than 38K beta feature users
[2] and we have spent the past months addressing the issues raised.

The feature fulfills a wish from the German Community’s Technical Wishlist
[3], is inspired by DerHexer's revisionjumper gadget [4] and based on a
prototype <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Tech/RevisionSlider>by
the WMF's Community Tech Team
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Tech> [5].

Thanks to everyone who tested RevisionSlider and gave valuable feedback to
improve the feature! We hope that RevisionSlider will continue to serve all
contributors well.

Lea (for WMDE's Technical Wishes team)
