The current version is 1.28.0
v1.28.2 is out.
1.29.1 is current please bump!
Thank you for the bump request.
You can help the maintainer with further information:
Does a simple bump  work on your system?
Chances are high, because a first look on the bump revealed only small changes.
@Maintainer Is there a problem with the bump? How can others help you?
There was no reaction in this request for a while. Do you still maintain the ebuild?
This is a relative simple version bump from 1.27.3, yes. At some point it was determined that this tweak was needed with 1.28.0, I have since lost the origin of why/whom.

+ imagemagick? ( virtual/imagemagick-tools )
Upstream did change the minimum mysql dependency with 1.30.0; rebuild omits the RDEPEND check. More info https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Release_notes/1.30
1.30.0 is stable
1.28.0 is obsolete
1.27.4 is legacy LTS
1.27.3 is missing security patches.
So yes, I could see an argument for bumping to the latest 1.27.x and 1.30.x packages.
Hope this helps.

This package clearly lacks an active maintainer.
