I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects (see my personal account). In May 2012 I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as the "Product Manager" for the VisualEditor Team (now called the Editing-team). I'm now the Lead Product Manager for the Contributors-Team.

This will roll out to production next week, as part of wmf.22.
Yes. It was the main "feature" (beyond the redesign and the extensibility) of the 2010 wikitext editor over the 2006 one, and it was proposed by someone (can't remember whom).

My fault, yeah, we need to set wgVisualEditorEnableDiffPageBetaFeature true on wikis where you want it. Did you still want it to go everywhere? Just test wikis? Just Wikipedias?

With T159795: Port Translate to new RC Filters system done, I think this can be declared complete.
My fault, sorry. Will fail for code using VE in a non-ULS environment (or, in this case, in CI for code that depends on or cross-tests with VE but not ULS).

Done, maybe? But I don't know what to look for with the at-ease upgrade.
Tested on wmf.20 production; worked great: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Topic:U795k02bwh6ao6v1&action=history
