No changes that I am aware of, but they may have added some extra features.

I will be making the various templates self-documenting, so if you look up "Template:InfoBox" it will give you text explaining how to use it, for example.

I have learned how to mask Categories, and make templates have sections that never get included, and a bunch of behind-the-scenes stuff. From the end-user perspective, there will just be more things you will be able to include to properly tag your page. For example, I might have something like this:


If you include that CATegory for Joystick, it will tag Hardware / Controller / Joystick. That way, we could click on the category link for "Joystick" and see all of those, or "Controller" and see every type of input device page, or "Hardware" to see anything considered hardware.

Getting all the pages tagged is going to be a big undertaking, but I am also creating special categories like "Missing Photo" and "Missing Date" so we will be able to look for pages that need additional info.
