MediaWiki 1.20是MediaWiki的既往发行版本。 This is a summary of the major changes of interest to users. You can consult the 发行说明 file for the full list of changes. 自2012年4月起,通过增量更新的"wmf"-分支部署在维基基金会管理的wiki上。 2012年11月7日发行了最后版本,参见下载

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

The following extensions make use of one or more hooks added in MediaWiki 1.20.0 and may therefore require MediaWiki 1.20 for some or all of their functionalities:
