Status update on SocialProfile for Q1/2011

This is the first quarterly update about the SocialProfile extension for MediaWiki, from January 1, 2011 to March 31, 2011.

Fixed bugs

  • Bug #26588 — image converting code should use $wgImageMagickConvertCommand instead of hardcoded "convert" (fixed in r79662)

  • Bug #28251 — SQL error in user profile pages (fixed in r84806)

  • Bug #27032 — new EditProfile special page to edit other users' social profiles

Other notable things

Plans for the future

  • Fix all open SocialProfile bugs — currently there are 6 open bugs; most of them aren't too complicated, so it should be possible to get them fixed by the end of the year

  • Improve and release other social tools — Comments, QuizGame, PictureGame, Video...there are plenty of awesome social extensions that need to be cleaned up and released
