Hi Crabgrass Users.
We want to let you know about updates, changes, and bug fixes as we continue to develop Crabgrass. We just deployed our latest version. In it you’ll find:
- New Left Sidebar
- New Page Sidebar with crazy new popups
- Support for IE6/7
- Full text searching
- Beginnings of internationalization.
- Navbar drop down menus temporarily disabled.
- New bug tracking and feature request system (let’s move to bugs and feature requests instead of putting everything in one huge wiki!)
If you interested in the blow by blow development time line, check out labs.riseup.net/code/projects/show/crab...
As always your comments, questions, and suggestions help drive development. Jump in and comment below!
OK! it is going to be a long slog through all the code to make it possible to localize every string, but I think we are ready for people to test creating translations:we.riseup.net/gibberize
Login and go to that url. You will be presented with the UI to translate. There are only a couple dozen strings currently, but at this point we just need to test the process to see that it works.
All the people in this discussion who have said they want to translate have access to /gibberize. If you want access to, post a note here.
You are right. All style sheets will need to be mirrored eventually to have good right-to-left (or bi-directional) sites. I will still find out if you are using gettext for localization or some other means. I wonder if Plural Forms will be supported.
I was hoping a few more would be done, but we might as well test with what we have.
I am going to start a committee for working on translations.
