No changes from 2012.11

== Translate ==
Lots of development is ongoing on the translation user interface
redesign project conducted by the WMF Language Engineering Team. New
message list and translation editor are in alpha stage, but interested
users can activate them by using url parameter tux=1 while on
Special:Translate. Also, tux=0 gets back the old interface.

$wgTranslateAC and $wgTranslateEC were removed. If you were still
using these, switch over to the TranslatePostInitGroups hook or

Bundled Solarium library was removed. Install it manually or use the
MediaWiki Solarium extensions.

Other noteworthy changes:

* New MessageGroups::getParentGroups was added which returns
  all the paths from top-level groups to reach to given group.

   also reviews
