  • ArchWiki: adaptations after split of Japanese articles

  • Changes to the API


All users are required to reinstall Wiki Monkey through the new links in Getting started.

The old scripts will still be supported in a parallel 1.17.0 version, but they will be completely deprecated in the next releases.

  • Support for Chromium's and Opera's native user script engines is discontinued: Chromium users must reinstall Wiki Monkey through Tampermonkey, and Opera users through Violentmonkey.
  • Only two user scripts are released for each supported wiki (currently only ArchWiki and Wikipedia): the main one is equivalent to the previously-called "Bot" configuration (i.e. all the bundled plugins are enabled by default): it is designed to be used with GreaseMonkey-like browser extensions; the second one is a standalone version for browsers that do not have such extensions: the standalone version does not support plugins that make cross-domain requests.
  • Wiki Monkey can now be persistently configured in a dedicated tab in the wiki user preferences, through a JSON object that can also be easily exported or imported; the previous "Patrol", "Patrol lite" and "Editor" configurations can now be set by disabling plugins in this way, possibly using the example configurations in the project's "configurations" folder.
  • The "grid" interface that for example was used in the editor has been replaced with a neater menu-like interface
  • Project's files and folders have been largely reorganized
  • The SimpleReplace plugin has now wider input fields
  • Bugfixes
