It’s been many months since my last status report on the state of Kuma. There are many reasons for this; some technical, some personal. I’ll be trying to do this more regularly again going forward. Obviously, the big project is the redesign of MDN. Most of our fixes apply directly to that project right now.

Here’s a quick list of the things that landed in the last few days:

  • The new search results page has a big search box on it.
  • Menu font sizes have been improved on search results pages.
  • Fixed a bug that caused double vertical scroll bars to appear on zone landing pages with short content areas.
  • Use of the content space within the body of articles is improved.
  • Performance of the localization dashboard is improved.
  • Other improvements for the wiki and home page, including fixes for RTL and text overflow problems.
  • KumaScript warning messages now use preformatted styling for easier reading in the redesign.

Also, several internal fixes building up toward upcoming big features have been committed.

We should be getting the ability to delete and move pages very soon. The code is finished and committed; I’m trying to sort out why it’s not enabled yet so we can fix whatever remains to be done so it can be switched on, at least for a few people to test.
