Hi all, Tomorrow we will be issuing a security release to all supported branches of MediaWiki. The new releases will be: 1.29.2 1.28.3 1.27.4 This will resolve 9 issues in MediaWiki core. Fixes will be available in these respective release branches, the currently unreleased 1.30.0 and also master. Tarballs will be available for the above mentioned point releases as well. 1.28 was previously announced as end of life, but 1.28.3 will be the final security and maintenance release barring any unforeseen issues. This security release includes fixes for MediaWiki core.

"Even though we previously announced that 1.28 was end of life, it will see one final security and maintenance release. 1.28.3 will be the final 1.28 release." or something like that? I don't think T179780: Consider releasing MediaWiki 1.28.3 has been publicly announced besides that ticket.
Mmmm. I've got something like that in T180268
Please note that this month is the End-Of-Life date for MediaWiki 1.28. This means that MediaWiki 1.28.3 will be the last security release for that version, barring any unforeseen issues. We would strongly encourage users of MediaWiki 1.28 to upgrade to MediaWiki 1.29, released in July 2017, or a yet newer version as soon as possible. MediaWiki 1.29 will be supported until July 2018. See <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Version_lifecycle> for more information.
Feel free to edit as you see fit :)
