I would like to announce the release of MediaWiki language extension
bundle 2013.02.

* https://translatewiki.net/mleb/MediaWikiLanguageExtensionBundle-2013.02.tar.bz2
* sha256sum: 7fece850483e2b74539f69b461501d26487290293ae93b40cd31d6e96f90d112

Quick links:

* Announcements of new releases will be posted to a mailing list:
* Report bugs to https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org
* Talk with us at #mediawiki-i18n @ freenode

Full release notes for each extension are below.

Note that the UniversalLanguageSelector extension was rolled back to
its 2012.12 version to ensure compatibility with MediaWiki 1.19 and
1.20. Because of an issue, which is fixed in 1.21 alpha, logged-in
user cannot save ULS preferences.

Only localisation updates and code formatting without functional changes.

* Add English local name for the nds-nl language.
* Localisation updates.
* Experimental support for composer.json.

Only localisation updates.

No changes.

=== Highlights ===
The highlight of this version is the continued work on the new translations
editor - "Translate UX" or "TUX" for short. In particular, preliminary
work began
on the proofreading view.
The TUX feature is still beta - all users will only see the old
translation editor. Add tux=1 to the URL to experiment with TUX and tux=0
to go back to the default editor.

=== Noteworthy changes ===
==== TUX ====
* (bug 44381) "[]" is no longer displayed in the old translation
editor in certain cases
* Add a "Paste original" button
* Collapse identical translation memory suggestions to save space
* Fix accesskeys for save and skip
* Proper formatting of left-to-right messages documentation in
right-to-left interface language
* Display a warning when translating to a non-priority language
* Fetch and show the description of a message group
* Show workflow state selector
* Machine translations are displayed as translation suggestionssee
* Do not show !!FUZZY!! marker to  translators

==== Other ====
* Experimental composer (http://getcomposer.org/) support
* Fix message key mangling in AndroidXmlFFS
* Do another sanity check in MessageHandle::isValid() to avoid
exceptions when message index is out of date
* (bug 45115) Only export languages that can be translated on command line
* (bug 45345) Add Language header to gettext file header
* Show that Special:AggregateGroups is a restricted special page

The UniversalLanguageSelector extension is rolled back in this release
to the 2012.12 version. The latest versions are not backwards compatible
with the released 1.19 and 1.20 MediaWiki versions.

The main issue is that saving ULS options to the user preferences
is impossible.
