== Babel, CLDR, CleanChanges ==
* Only localisation updates.

== LocalisationUpdate ==
* README was updated to include better installation instructions.

== Translate ==
=== Noteworthy changes ===
* Allow capital letters in MediaWiki style variables (insertables)
* Bug 60500: Added AppleFFS module for iOS/Mac OS X Localizable.strings files
* Remove shortcut activated from "paste source". It's similar to
"revert changes" button, which does not have the insertable class and
thus the number indicating shortcut key won't be visible.
* Added new hook TranslateMessageGroupPathVariables
* Bug 61459: Removed $wgTranslateExtensionDirectory option.
* The magic-export.php was updated to handle failures more gracefully.
* Bug 50954: In the translation interface, 'Add documentation' link
now changes to 'Edit documentation' as soon as documentation is added.
* Bug 54194: The ApiQueryMessageCollection module no longer throws
exceptions on invalid input.

== UniversalLanguageSelector ==
=== Noteworthy changes ===
* Detect tofu before applying any default fonts. See:
for technical documentation about how tofu detection works in ULS.
* Bug 60304: Added enableWebfonts preference. Each wiki can be
configured to load the fonts by default using the new global variable
$wgULSWebfontsEnabled. Its default value is true (to load fonts).
* ULS is now much lighter for the browser thanks to many changes:
** Bug 56292: All SVG images were optimized to reduce their size even
50% in some cases.
** I18n related jquery.i18n and messages code is now loaded only later
after user interacts with ULS.
** We removed a dependency to a big JavaScript module which was no
longer needed to support anonymous preferences.
* Bug 60815: Add Marwari (rwr) and Ottoman Turkish (ota) to the
languages supported by ULS.

=== Fonts ===
* Add Iranian Serif and Iranian Sans Bold fonts.
* Removed Amiri font from Persian.
* Replaced Xerxes font with Artaxerxes.

=== Input methods ===
* Bug 53695: For languages which have no input methods, the "Use
native keyboard" option is now shown as selected by default.
* Added Venetian input method.
