Wikitravel's servers have been upgraded to MediaWiki version 1.8.2 (see [[Special:Version]]). The upgrade was low-impact, didn't require DB changes, and mostly had bug-fixes and minor feature enhancements, so per the [[:en:Wikitravel:Technical infrastructure policy]] I did the upgrade without scheduled downtime after testing in my sandbox and on the review: site.

The major visible changes will be some MW options (like the "GUI" toolbar, or having previews above the edit box) that have been disabled by default for a while. These default options used to be handled in the language files; they're now handled a different way, and I thought this was a good opportunity to re-synch with Wikimedia defaults.
