== Babel ==
Only localization updates.

== cldr ==
=== Highlights ===
* Adding support for time units

=== Noteworthy changes ===
* (bug 38209) Remove duplicate array keys

== CleanChanges ==
Only localization updates.

== LocalisationUpdate ==
Internal code cleanup and optimization, making updates faster.

== Translate ==
=== Highlights ===
==== Translation UX ====
The new Translation UX is getting out of the beta status and becoming

The variable $wgTranslateUseTux can be used to control which interface
will the users see by default. The default value is true. Set it to false
to make the old green-style translations editor show by default. The user
can choose the editor version by adding tux=0 or tux=1 to the URL.

The plan is to remove the old editor in the future.

==== Other notes ====
Several internal fixes were made in File Format Support (FFS) and in core
Translate features, but no new features were introduced. See below for details.

=== Noteworthy changes ===
==== Translate UX ====
* Proofreading view added to Translate UX.
* Page view added to Translate UX. It is similar to the default "List" view,
  but it gives every message more space and partially parses the messages rather
  than show them as plain text.
* Added a "Discard changes" button.
* Various visual design adjustments.
* (bug 45493) Do not consider empty string to mark a translation as "unsaved"
* (bug 45481) Move focus to search for the project selector
* (bug 45488) Remove delay in enablement of "save translation" button
* Allow inserting a translation from the helper language with a click
* Workflow state selector is now only shown for groups with states
  and the correct state is shown

==== File Format Support ====
* (bug 45354) XML for Android export should have escaped ' and "
* (bug 42635) Some GettextFFS messages were not unfuzzied on import:
  Handling of external changes only affecting the fuzzy flag are now
handled properly on import
* Add fuzzy support to AndroidXmlFFS
* Don't create empty files in AndroidXmlFFS
* Empty msgctxt is now exported correctly in GettextFFS
* (bug 42612) Have PythonSingleFFS observe the supplied mapping
  of internal language codes to product language codes

==== Other ====
* The "Recent Additions" filter displays only relevant messages -
without optional,
  ignored and discouraged.
* Converted the logging code to the new LogFormatter
* (bug 44328) Do not display fuzzy translations on translation pages
* Fix and speed up translatable pages moving
* (bug 45345) Run mapped code through wfBCP47()

== UniversalLanguageSelector ==
=== Highlights ===
UniversalLanguageSelector is updated to the latest version. The latest
release of MediaWiki 1.20 supports the recent updates for the preferences
handling, and this allows users properly save their ULS preferences.

=== Noteworthy changes ===
==== Display and design ====
* (bug 42384) Don't show the tooltip if the ULS panel is on
  (preventing the overlap)
* (bug 42440) Fix button state when canceling
* Styling of settings to fit the bottom of the ULS
* (bug 43568) Languages are shown multiple times
* (Bug 42439) Incorrect vertical alignment for Telugu web font

==== Webfonts ====
* Support for the Amiri webfont in the standard Arabic language (ar).
* Added the Alef font for Hebrew.
* Add Tuladha Jejeg font for Javanese

==== Other ====
* (Bug 42378) Make "disable IME tools" effects immediate as a preview
* Update jquery.uls and make it more modular
* Provide a base ULS RL module and separate UI language selection
* The non-standard language code als now redirects to the standard code gsw.
