Description:
related to bug 1891. from url:

Wikipedia recently upgraded to a new wiki software version, but there is a
feature that I had hoped would be in it.

Whenever you click on the history tab, there are several numbers at the
bottom - 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, etc. that gives you the "results per page"
feature. However, I really want a "last" and "first" feature - that is - I
can hop right to the beginning of a page's history to see how it began as an
article. That way, I don't have to press the "next 500" button over and over
again to see the article's beginning.

Hope this will be in the next version of the wiki software. — Stevey7788

isn't that duplicating http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1891 ??
" Skip to oldest version in page history - allow query string to point to the
first (initial) revision"

my understanding of that bug is it retrieves the last _actual revision_ of a page.
this doesn't give you the page, it takes you back in the history list.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
