    Latest versions?

    November 8, 2016 by Robin Patterson

    Something on Familypedia has changed. We seem unable to go directly to our main input form as we used to (from clicking on red links in infoboxes).

    We now have Semantic Drilldown (Version 2.0.1) and Semantic MediaWiki (Version 2.4.1) and - listed in a separate table of Special:Version - Semantic Forms (Version 3.7).

    I've not checked whether all of those have changed since the last time I looked it up, so it's a work in progress. I or someone else should check this wiki and update where appropriate.

    The $GLOBALS['smwgSparqlQFeatures'] configuration setting now supports these additional values:

    Familypedia has been having problems with an upgrade or something else in recent months. Best introduction to the problems is probably w:c:familypedia:User talk:Thurstan.

    It would be really helpful if Wikia staff who make changes to SMW versions or storage locations could notify users by way of a message on this wiki.
