MediaWiki 1.30/RC0 Announcement

The availability of MediaWiki 1.30 Release Candidate 0 was announced on November 28, 2017. The announcement is reproduced below, since the links are easier to click than in the original announcement.

I would like to announce the immediate availability of MediaWiki 1.30.0-rc.0, the first release candidate for 1.30.x. Links are at the end of this e-mail.

This is not a final release and should not be used for production websites.

As always, please do try out the release candidate in a test environment. It's how we find bugs that didn't surface in initial development.

Barring any unforeseen issues, we hope to move forward to the release of MediaWiki 1.30 in the next few weeks.

Per the version lifecycle, the current MediaWiki LTS version is 1.27.4. The 1.27 LTS branch will continue to be supported through June 2019. The 1.29 branch is not an LTS branch, but it will continue to be supported until July 2018. The current version in that branch is 1.29.2. MediaWiki 1.28.x reached End of Life this month. The final release in this series was 1.28.3.
