  • Liquipedia Commons is officially launched. On the other Liquipedia wikis, uploading has been disabled, as all files will have to be uploaded to the Commons wiki. This centralized file resource will help us be more consistent for some images such as team logos or to share player photos across several wikis.

  • The old medal icons have been replaced by the ones that have already been in use on other Liquipedia wikis. This was done to improve consistency across all wikis.

  • The wiki software has been upgraded, from MediaWiki 1.22.5 to 1.25.2.
    • The skins had to be updated, but the visual result should be the same. One exception is that lock icons for HTTPS links are gone.
    • Category pages can now be moved. It is not a category move though, just a move of the page for the category.
    • The extension VideoFlash has been replaced by EmbedVideo for video embeds (mainly YouTube videos). This also means support for HTML5 videos has been dropped.
