Sorry about that. The MediaWiki foundation is developing a Wiki engine
called "MediaWiki" used in various Websites, and more specially
Wikipedia ones. Moritz's announcement is for a new MathML mode with SVG
fallback that is currently only available to registered users, with the
last changes merged in MediaWiki version 1.25wmf4. This version will
only be deployed to Wikipedia web sites on October 23th.

(Actually, this new MathML mode is already available on Wikipedia but
does not have all the features of 1.25wmf4.)

It has not been decided yet when this MathML mode will become the
default. Currently non-registered users will still see PNG images.

> Moritz, why are you not situating your attempts wrt Blahtex? This one was designed for Wikipedia.
The Blahtex attempts were for MediaWiki too (and so Wikipedia), but this
is now obsolete.
