#Wikidata is used on the Hungarian #Wikipedia

The Wikipedia in Hungarian is the first Wikipedia that makes use of Wikidata for its interwiki links. This is great news because the bots that update these links are no longer needed. This will make it much easier to resolve the many issues that exist with the old interwiki approach.

The way to update interwiki links on the Hungarian Wikipedia is now by updating Wikidata. Recently many of the messages that support Wikidata have been localised in Hungarian making it much easier.

I hope that many Hungarians will find their way to Wikidata and make it a success. It will be awesome once the old interwiki links have gone the way of the dodo. In preparation for that day, you can check out if there are messages in your language that need localisation.
