We’ve just updated the presentation of category and portal pages on the wiki. It is now much easier to see the different types of key articles, and also to browse articles relevant to a particular natural language.
The top of the category page has the key article lists. These include the same information as previously, but now you can browse just the list you’re interested in. Because we now have more room, we’ve also been able to add a “Featured Articles” list.
The lower list has separate tabs for each of the main natural languages used on the wiki (English, Portuguese, Chinese etc), which makes it much easier to view the articles relevant to your locale. The Archived tab keeps older articles readily available, but prevents them from obscuring the list of more recent content.
A few categories will have additional tabs to show breakdown of content by software platform (e.g. Windows Phone). Tabs without content will not be displayed.
We think you’ll find this approach more easy to use. Best of all though, if you don’t like it, the unsorted list of articles created by mediawiki remains available at the bottom of every category page.
As an example (and to have a play), check out the category: Category:HERE Maps for Java ME. If you like this approach, or if you have suggestions for improvement, please add them as comments to this post.

We’ve now updated the Category pages to make the subcategories more prominent – appearing in the top right-hand side of the pages. This makes it a lot easier to drill down to more specific topics.
