I’m happy to announce the launch of Beta Features, a new program that lets you test new features on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia sites before they are released for everyone.
The Beta Features program lets developers roll out new software in an environment where lots of users can use these features, then give feedback to help make them better.
Think of it as a digital laboratory where community members can preview upcoming changes and help designers and engineers make improvements based on their suggestions.
I am product manager for this first version of Beta Features, working with my colleagues James Forrester, Mark Holmquist, Jared Zimmerman and many other Wikimedia Foundation team members to bring it to our community.
