Fitur Beta baru: Hovercard menunjukkan pratinjau dari artikel

Hovercard adalah pratinjau singkat mengenai artikel Wikipedia dan halaman wiki lainnya, ditunjukkan saat pembaca mengarahkan kursor pada pranala menuju halaman tersebut. Pratinjau berisi mengenai alinea utama dan gambar pertama dari artikel. Pengguna dapat mengaktifkan fitur ini dengan masuk kedalam akun mereka dan menekan pranala "Beta" pada bagian kanan atas. Hovercard terinspirasi dari gadget Pop-up navigasi yang digunakan oleh para Wikimediawan berpengalaman dari Wikipedia Inggris dan Wiki lainnya, dan mengubah ide tersebut untuk membuatnya lebih cocok bagi para pengguna kasual.

Penyegaran tipografi: Sebuah tampilan baru bagi tulisan pada situs Wikimedia

Pada akhir Maret, sebuah update pada tipografi dalam versi desktop untuk situs Wikimedia diumumkan. Penyegaran tipografi didasarkan pada empat kebutuhan: 1. Dapat dibaca, 2. tampilan konsisten pada banyak alat yang berbeda, 3. keberadaan dari typeface pada platform yang berbeda (Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, dan sistem operasi pada perangkat mobile), dan 4. aksesibilitas (bahkan bagi para pembaca tunanetra).

Perubahan yang sangat terlihat adalah heading yang sekarang diperlihatkan dalam font serif daripada font sans-serif. Juga modifikasi lain: Warna teks yang sekarang adalah abu-abu sangat gelap daripada sebelumnya hitam murni, dimana warna latar belakang tetap putih murni. Dan juga, ukuran font badan telah diperbesar.

Perubahan ini direncanakan untuk dikeluarkan pada April, dengan penyesuaian berdasar kepada feedback dari pengguna.

 
Sue Gardner mendiskusikan mengenai proposal WMF FDC

Draft annual plan published for feedback from the community and the 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

Picture of the Year 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.

Wikimedia Russia achieves changes to Russian copyright laws

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.
