Fotografia d'un quadre emergent (una visualització prèvia de l'article en:Claude Monet present a en:Camille Doncieux)

Nova funció beta: Els quadres emergents mostren una visualització prèvia dels articles

Els quadres emergents són breus visualizacions prèvies d'un article de la Viquipèdia o d'una altra pàgina wiki, que es mostren quan el lector situa el cursor a sobre d'un enllaç. La visualització prèvia està formada pel primer paràgraf i la primera imatge de l'article. Els usuaris poden activar aquesta funció iniciant sessió al seu compte i clicant l'enllaç "Beta" a la part superior dreta. Els quadres emergents van ser inspirats en les finestres emergents de navegació utilitzades per molts Viquipedistes experts a la Viquipèdia anglesa i arreu, i la idea ha estat modificada per fer-la més adequada a tots els lectors.

Actualització de la tipografia: Un nou aspecte per al text a les pàgines de Wikimedia

At the end of March, an update to the typography on the desktop version of Wikimedia sites was announced. The typography refresh is based on four requirements: 1. Readability, 2. a consistent look across multiple devices, 3. availability of the typefaces across various platforms (Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and mobile operating systems), and 4. accessibility (even for those readers with visual impairments).

El canvi més visible és que els encapçalaments mostren ara una font amb serifa en lloc d'una tipografia sense serifa. Entre altres modificacions: el color del text és ara gris fosc en lloc de negre pur, mentre que el color de fons s'ha mantingut blanc pur. A més, la mida de la tipografia ha augmentat.

Els canvis es van planificar de publicar a l'abril, amb canvis basats en l'opinió dels usuaris.

La senyora Sue Gardener debatent la proposta WMF del FDC

Esborrany de l'últim pla anual publicat per a consells de la comunitat i del FDC

In March, the Foundation worked to prepare its 2014/15 annual plan for publication in draft form, as a proposal to the FDC (Funds Dissemination Committee). The feedback from the FDC and the community review period (April 1 to April 30) will be taken into account while the plan is being finalized. As part of the FDC proposal, the Foundation published a new comprehensive overview of ongoing, long-term work that WMF staff and contractors are carrying out in support of the Wikimedia projects.

Other highlights from the Wikimedia movement

Picture of the Year 2013

Imatge de l'Any 2013

The results from the "Picture of the Year 2013" vote on Wikimedia Commons were announced in March. 952 featured pictures from 2013 were eligible for the award. In two rounds, 4070 users voted for their favorite image, setting a new record in participation. The winning image, by German Wikimedian Stefan Krause, is an artistic illustration showing a lightbulb with its filament burning because oxygen has entered through the lightbulb's cracked surface.

On March 12, several changes to Russia's civil code were signed into law which will benefit Wikimedia projects. They include a legal basis for free licenses which will enable Wikipedia editors to better defend their authors’ rights, and freedom of panorama rule for objects in public places (like buildings or gardens), which will allow the restoration of hundreds of images on Commons that had to be deleted earlier. The Russian Wikimedia chapter had been advocating for such changes since 2009.
