■ Beta Features ってなに？？？
== Beta Features pre-announcement on the Japanese Wikipedia ==
I was wondering if you'd like to do the community pre-announcement for mw:Beta Features|Beta Features? this coming Friday, 1 November, on the Japanese Wikipedia. We are working to get as many local community announcements made as possible on that day by community members. Beta Features will be introduced to all non-Wikpedia projects on Monday, 4 November, and all Wikipedias on Thursday, 7 November.
Beta Features is a new set of preferences that can be access by clicking the word "beta" next to preferences in the top right corner of the screen. Once there you can pick and choose what developmental features are available that you would like to try out (or none at all) before the software is finished. We're excited about this new platform allowing for user testing on a broad scale, but not in a disruptive manner.
This coming Thursday, 31 October, we will be turning on Beta Features on mediawiki.org so you can use it there before the release, and we'll be releasing a m:Wikimedia_Blog/Drafts/Introducing_Beta_Features|blog? this Thursday as well with information about Beta Features. You can use this material in your messaging on Friday.
You will soon be able to test new features easily using the "Beta Features" view. VisualEditor will be in the list on sites where it works and isn't automatically enabled. Another example is a set of changes in the article text style.
