== Highlights ==
* MLEB now requires MediaWiki 1.35.3 and PHP 7.3.19
* This release contains security fixes. We recommend updating as soon as
* Prevent non-wikitext pages from being marked for translation
* Add support for moving talkpages when moving translatable pages
* The translation UI (TUX) now uses the user preferred edit fonts when
displaying the source message & the editor ([[gerrit:c/719641|Gerrit]],

== Known Issues ==
* The new Vector skin has a configuration parameter
<code>$wgVectorLanguageInHeader</code> that moves the language links from
the sidebar into a menu beside the page title. With MediaWiki 1.36, New
Vector (REL1_36 branch) and <code>$wgVectorLanguageInHeader</code> set to
true, the menu beside the title does not respond to click events and is
hence unusable. We recommend setting <code>$wgVectorLanguageInHeader</code>
to false if you are using MediaWiki 1.36.

== Babel, cldr, and LocalisationUpdate ==
* Localisation and maintenance updates.

from all users are displayed ([
Gerrit], [ Phabricator])
