Description

I noticed that the English and German Wikipedia logos look slightly different at 1x resolution (apart from the obviously different tagline, which is translated):
enwiki.png (155×135 px, 8 KB)dewiki.png (155×135 px, 7 KB)
If you open both images (or enwiki.png and dewiki.png on /static/) in new tabs and quickly toggle between them, you can see that the “Wikipedia” letters are arranged sligthly differently, and all the lines in the puzzleball seem a bit heavier in the English version.

At 2x resolution, the puzzleball and Wikipedia wordmark look identical:
enwiki-2x.png (310×270 px, 19 KB)dewiki-2x.png (310×270 px, 19 KB)
enwiki-2x.png, dewiki-2x.png

And when I open the 1x versions, zoomed to 200%, next to the 2x versions, it seems to me that dewiki.png is closer to dewiki-2x.png than enwiki.png is to enwiki-2x.png:
enwiki.png (155×135 px, 8 KB)enwiki-2x.png (310×270 px, 19 KB)
dewiki.png (155×135 px, 7 KB)dewiki-2x.png (310×270 px, 19 KB)

So I think it’s the enwiki.png that is slightly wrong, and should perhaps be updated. You can also compare the static enwiki.png with the Commons thumbnail at the same resolution – the latter has the same puzzleball and wordmark as static dewiki.png:
enwiki.png (155×135 px, 8 KB)enwiki-commons.png (155×135 px, 18 KB)dewiki.png (155×135 px, 7 KB)
