Wikitravel passed the 500 article mark on the 29th of October. We're well on the way to our 1000-article milestone.

Wikitravel was mentioned in The Hindu, "India's National Newspaper." They said, in part, "This site [...] contains a wealth of travel related information [...]". Is this our first mention in off-line press, and thus another milestone?

As of last weekend, daylight savings time ("summer time") is over in most of Europe and North America (and other parts of the world). The MediaWiki software we use does not automagically adapt to changes in daylight savings time, so times for things may start looking funny to you on Wikitravel.
To fix this, you need to go to the Special:Preferences page and hit the Fill in from browser button to get your time offset corrected.

The upgrade on the 8th caused problems and hassles, resulting in hundreds of rogue processes running on the wikitravel.org server. Some of the special "optimizations" in the MediaWiki software have been turned off; this seems to be providing better responses.

wikitravel.org was updated to the latest stable version (20030829) of the Mediawiki software. This is a bugfix version, so there shouldn't be too many obvious changes to the site, and we will hopefully see some more stability. If you see anything unusual, please use the Bug reports page to report it.
