Time for aggregation

I think it is now time to think of some aggregation of the data displayed. The more wikis get added naturally the more different versions appear here which leads to a very cluttered display. For MediaWiki we should show 1.20.x, 1.19.x, etc., for PHP 5.4.x, 5.3.x, etc. and for MySQL 5.5.x, 5.1.x, etc. At the same time links to individual pages for the different branches should be provided which show the situation for the respective branch. --[[kgh]] (talk) 11:07, 19 January 2013 (UTC) PS I have done it for the PHP series (PHP 5.4.x/PHP 5.3.x/PHP 5.2.x) as an example. --[[kgh]] (talk) 11:26, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

I agree with this change, right now the lower mediawiki versions are pushed entirely off the statistics even with it split into two barcharts. This page for overview, other pages for zooming into detail.--Ete (talk) 01:51, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

Graphs with change over time?

It would be really cool to see something like this kind of graph eventually (probably after the web has been crawled and a vast majority of wikis are monitored so the over time data is not distorted by sampling bias) showing the adoption of mediawiki versions.--Ete (talk) 01:47, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

There is an issue for this. --[[kgh]] (talk) 07:47, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

MediaWiki 1.26

Has anybody have any idea why MediaWiki 1.26 is so popular? The last version, to which a layman has a chance to upgrade to, the version current when wiki went out of fascion or some great farm offers exactly that version?
