This is the OrthodoxWiki:News page, detailing important news about OrthodoxWiki itself. It is strongly recommended that you add it to your watchlist so that you can keep track of whenever it's updated. New updates will always appear at the top of this page. Old news items will be archived, so headings should not be considered permalinks.

OrthodoxSource, a sister project to OrthodoxWiki, is currently in alpha stage. One purpose behind this project is to keep OrthodoxWiki focused on being an encylopedia. OrthodoxSource will be a place for collections of things: archives, images, articles, and other relevant files of all sorts. If you're up for pioneering, please register over there and help out. On this end, pages that would be more appropriate for the other site can be marked with the Osource template, which will land them in Category:Articles for transfer.

Also, the MediaWiki intallation has been updated to version 1.6.8.
