Thanks to everbody helping to make this possible!

New features:

- New Atom/RSS feed. It won't send log messages, like creation of a user, any more, so you should see just the meat: article creations and article edits. [reprap.org] and/or [reprap.org]

- Better search field: start to type and the wiki will show you a menu with existing completions.

- Experienced users with more than 150 edits no longer need to solve captchas, even when adding external links.

- Newbie users with less than 10 edits won't be allowed to add external links (or create new pages containing such) at all. This is a very important anti-spam measure. So far it seems to work out, zero spam since the flip.

- All the goodies the new Mediawiki software brings in, of course.

While we tested the new software a lot over the last few weeks, the flip already showed up with two (now known) caveats:

- The file upload link in the toolbox to the left is missing.

- Math formulas no longer render, e.g. here: [reprap.org]

We're working on this. Please report if you find additional ones.


Have fun!

Awesome! The spam was getting tiring. Now wiki admins can focus more on actual content.
