For the initial deployment, the feature will be available to Google Chrome browsers on Android. Support for other mobile browsers to come in the future. For Chrome, the feature will use the native Android print functionality. Users can choose to download a webpage as a PDF. Mobile print styles will be used for these PDFs to ensure optimal readability for smaller screens.
In August 2016, I informed this Wikinews that either the MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning notice needed to be changed locally, or the button that currently says "保存页面" would be changed to say "发布页面" instead. There is more information about this at m:Editing/Publish. Since this wiki has not changed its copyright notice, I have scheduled the change to the button for Tuesday, 9 January 2018. This change has generally been simple and easy at other the wikis. You do not need to take any further action, although some help pages may need to be updated.
某些时候，要在维基文本编辑差异功能中找到重要的变更并不容易。 This screenshot of a wikitext diff (click to enlarge) shows that the paragraphs have been rearranged, but it does not highlight the removal of a word or the addition of a new sentence.
If you enable the Beta Feature for "可视化差异", you will have a new option. It will give you a new box at the top of every diff page. This box will let you choose either diff system on any edit.
In the visual diff, additions, removals, new links, and formatting changes will be highlighted. 而更改图片大小等其他变更则会注记在旁边的备注栏中。
This screenshot shows the same edit as the wikitext diff. The visual diff highlights the removal of one word and the addition of a new sentence.
You can read and help translate the user guide, which has more information about how to use the visual editor.
The 2017 wikitext editor is available as a Beta Feature on desktop devices. It has the same toolbar as the visual editor and can use the citoid service and other modern tools. The team have been comparing the performance of different editing environments. They have studied how long it takes to open the page and start typing. The study uses data for more than one million edits during December and January. Some changes have been made to improve the speed of the 2017 wikitext editor and the visual editor. Recently, the 2017 wikitext editor opened fastest for most edits, and the 2010 WikiEditor was fastest for some edits. More information will be posted at mw:Contributors/Projects/Editing performance.
The visual diff tool was developed for the visual editor. It is now available to all users of the visual editor and the 2017 wikitext editor. When you review your changes, you can toggle between wikitext and visual diffs. You can also enable the new Beta Feature for "Visual diffs". The Beta Feature lets you use the visual diff tool to view other people's edits on page histories and Special:RecentChanges.
