Wikimedia technology that you think should be distributed more broadly, you
can add it to the next newsletter at <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/Next>.

Latest *tech news
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Tech/News>* from the
Wikimedia technical community. Please tell other users about these changes.
Not all changes will affect you. Translations
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Tech/News/2016/42> are
available.

*Recent changes*

   - There is a new newsletter
   <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Collaboration/Newsletter>
from
   the Collaboration team <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Collaboration> at
   the Wikimedia Foundation. It will have more details about for example Flow
   and notifications. You can read the first issue
   
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Collaboration/Newsletter/Issues/October_2016>
   .

*Problems*

   - Some users got a warning about Wikipedia's security certificate
   
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/en:Public_key_certificate#Certificates_and_website_security>
last
   week. This was because of a problem GlobalSign
   <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/en:GlobalSign> had. This has now been
   fixed. Only a small number of users got the warning. [1]
   
<https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Incident_documentation/20161013-GlobalSign>
   - Editors couldn't edit semi-protected pages in the Wikipedia app
   <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Apps> for Android. This has
   now been fixed in the beta version. [2]
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T132834>

*Changes this week*

   - There will be no new MediaWiki version this week. [3]
   <https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Deployments&oldid=898289>

*Future changes*

   - The Editing Department <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Editing> are
   working on a new wikitext editor. It will have tools that are in the visual
   editor but not in the wikitext editor today. You can read more about this
   <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/2017_wikitext_editor>. This is an early
   plan and things can change. The old wikitext editor will still exist.
