Vector 2022 is the second evolution of the MediaWiki Vector skin and is in development as part of the Desktop improvements project. It has been bundled in MediaWiki since MediaWiki 1.38. It is the default skin for various Wikimedia projects.

Making Vector 2022 the default skin edit
Since MediaWiki 1.38 and higher, add the following to LocalSettings.php to make Vector 2022 the default skin:
$wgDefaultSkin = 'vector-2022';
Note that Vector 2022 has several unstable feature flags, which may disappear at any time. Most of these feature flags relate to incomplete features. We do not recommend changing any feature flag from its default value unless listed here.
$wgVectorMaxWidthOptions- Can be used to configure whether the max-width applies. Relatively stable at this point.
$wgVectorLanguageInMainPageHeader- Controls whether the language button shows on the main page in the header.
$wgVectorWvuiSearchOptions- Associative array with keys
