MediaWiki::API 0.41 Released

MediaWiki::API provides a Perl interface to the MediaWiki API (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API) which is the software behind the Wikipedia site (and my ExoticA site).

Just a couple of bugfixes since 0.41:

  • When using the max_lag configuration, if max_lag_retries was reached – the reported number tries were incorrect.
  • Fixed up the api->list function not continuing due to lack of rawcontinue parameter that is needed after MediaWiki 1.26.

Thanks to Derbeth for the bug reports.

The module can be downloaded from CPAN – http://search.cpan.org/~exobuzz/MediaWiki-API/. The source code and main development is on github – https://github.com/joolswills/mediawikiapi
