- There is a new tag that will be applied to edits that have been undone, rolled back or manually reverted to an older version of the page. This can help to detect users who need help or are committing vandalism. 
Changes later this week
- The number of times you can perform an action (for example an edit, moving a page or sending a mail) within a given amount of time on a wiki is usually limited. Some users (for example administrators) don't have any limit, but soon they will be able to see what limit they would have if they weren't part of a group that removes all limits. 
- The new version of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 22 September. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 23 September. It will be on all wikis from 24 September (calendar).

Fine print: Tech news in British English (en-gb) does not necessarily use British spelling. It is only British in spirit, unoversimplified when compared to the regular English version, allowing more complex terms (e.g. "issues" instead of "problems") and constructions.
