MediaWiki 1.31 will soon be End-of-Life
Hello all,

I wanted to send a heads-up to various places that MediaWiki 1.31, the
legacy LTS release, will be End-of-Life as of next month, June 2021.[0]
There will be a final release to follow-on from the current latest version
1.31.14 coming out in June, but it may have slipped people's mind that this
deadline is approaching so swiftly.

System administrators still using 1.31 are encouraged to start their
migration to the current LTS release, 1.35. MediaWiki 1.35, released in
September 2020, will be supported until September 2023. If you don't
require LTS support, you will be able to upgrade to 1.36 which will be
supported till May 2022 once it is released, before the end of the month.

As always, please be mindful of the upgrade instructions, especially
including making a back-up of your database, and testing extension
