Update Information:

Update to version 0.13.5, which solves the following issues:

It was reported that mwlib suffered from a flaw that could allow a remote
attacker to perform a denial of service attack on a mwlib installation by forcing it to parse a specially-crafted #iferror magic function. This issue has been resolved in version 0.13.5.

syntaxhighlight nodes are supported properly in version 0.13.5.
