    Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Wednesday, so we're posting this on a Tuesday to give you advance notice. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

    Due to observation of the Polish May holidays (Majówka), there will be no release this week. The regular release schedule will resume next week.
