Wikipedia Zero

NOTE: Overview information on Wikipedia Zero has been moved to Wikimediafoundation.org. Talk page discussions should still take place on MediaWiki, along with engineering updates.

Please visit the Wikipedia Zero page on the Wikimedia Foundation site to learn more about this initiative, and please do email us for information on joining as a partner.

For information on Wikipedia Zero support within the 2014 updated releases of the Wikipedia apps for Android and iOS, see the Wikipedia Zero App FAQ.


StatusEdit

2014-10-monthly:

During October 2014, the Partners engineering team enhanced the partners portal (ZeroPortal) extension to improve security and maintainability, added better font support for the Wikipedia Zero end user experience, migrated the remainder of operator partner configurations to use the unified design in support of lowered cache fragmentation on the mobile web Wikipedias, improved the fidelity of zero-rated Graph extension pageview statistics relative to the legacy Limn graphs while streamlining batch processing, made Wikipedia Zero end user information screen overlays follow MobileFrontend style, created Cucumber tests for the partners portal, added colorized crouton support to the Android app while reducing intrusive warnings on the Android and iOS apps for zero-rating (colorized iOS banner code also merged, will be in forthcoming release), prepared analysis and code for language-aware redirects from the m.wikipedia.org webroot, consulted with partners on API usage and app preloads and HTTP header enrichment and language aware redirects, and examined the interplay of Wikiipedia Zero with CentralNotice (e.g., fundraising) banners; currently, CentralNotice is suppressed when Wikipedia Zero page rewriting is in force, but in the future it would be nice to show non-fundraising CentralNotice content.
