After Wikipedia reached 10,000,000 global articles on March 27 (see archived story), the Kapampangan Wikipedia became the 100th Wikipedia to reach 5,000 articles on April 2.

Showing the growth of smaller-language Wikipedias, the 100th Wikipedia to reach 100 articles was the Nahuatl Wikipedia in June 2005 (see archived story); June 2006 saw the 100th to reach 1,000 articles, the Venetian Wikipedia (see archived story). In April 2006, about 73.4% of existing articles were located on the Top 10 Wikipedias; since then, only 59.4% of the new articles created over the last two years were on Top 10 Wikipedias.
