Per user feedback, View it! now has a Wikimedia Commons category search option.
Users of the tool have regularly requested for View it! to allow direct access to Commons categories without SDC-driven results. This month, the developer implemented a Commons Category (P373) filter when using advanced search. When using the P373 search, users are also given the subcategories to click through as well.
View it! is available across additional Wikimedia namespaces, now including Wikisource Author and Index pages. This change was a result of community feedback from our presentation at the October Wikisource Triage meeting.
View it! is now installed by 97 users; it has also been incorporated into two other Wikipedia-external tools. The team continues to work on tool translation—at present, is has been translated into 14 languages. If you are able, please consider helping us with language translation!
View it! on Toolforge also has a little bit of a new look, and we will continue streamlining the interface where possible for better media viewing.
