MediaWiki 1.20 は MediaWiki の廃止されたリリースです。 このページは利用者の皆さんが関心をお持ちの主な変更点の要約です。 すべての変更点の一覧は、リリース ノート ファイルを参照してください。 2012年4月より、番号が増える"wmf"ブランチを通じて、ウィキメディア財団のウィキ群に展開されました。 Final version was released on November 7th 2012, see ダウンロード .


MediaWiki 1.20 includes all changes released in the smaller bi-weekly "1.20wmfX" updates for Wikimedia sites. An overview of their changes is available only for 1.20wmf1.


A rainbow of colours as viewed by a person with no colour vision deficiencies.
MediaWiki 1.20 no longer has diff views looking as meaningless as this rainbow to color-blind users.

New diff view, greatly improved in clarity especially when viewing at small changes to pages (including whitespace changes) and colour-blind users. This fixes at last a major deficiency in MediaWiki's accessibility, already noted by Sunir Shah in 2001.[1]

With the latest version, spotting changes is much easier. It's speeded up workflow considerably: the kdenlive manual has many pages where small updates have been made, it would have taken me ages with the old diffs.Anne Wilson
