    There is a new option in preferences called 'Update denormalized usernames on username change'.
    I hardly can understand what does this option do. The description says:
    That's confusing for me. What the denormalized username is and what will change if I disable that option?
    This is mostly needed for a russian translation.

    It controls whether we go searching in a lot of tables for the old user name and update it to the new user name. (That's a really simplified, and thus possibly misleading description.)

    Note this doesn't refer to quoted posts.
