WordPress 3.5.1 has been released. It’s a security release, with no string changes, so please kick your localized builds out the door! Thanks.
We’re still aiming to release WordPress 3.5 tomorrow (target is 16:00 UTC). In the meantime, we’ve made two more string changes in the interest of clarifying some of the gallery settings. Both suggestions came from translators (and others) —
- “Random” (with the context “gallery order”) is now “Random Order”
- “Describe this image…” is now “Caption this image…”
Note there are also “Describe this audio/video/file…” strings, but they can only be triggers by plugins for WordPress 3.5, so I didn’t want to needlessly give you three more strings to translate.
That’s it, by the way. We’ve continued to make a few tweaks but at this point, if it hasn’t been proposed or reported, we’re done.
You guys rock, talk to you tomorrow!
Final notes for WordPress 3.5:
1. Expect a release in 10 to 36 hours from now. (The time is currently 0930 UTC. This general window I am providing you is thus is 1900 today to 2100 tomorrow). The release checklist takes up to an hour, which includes letting you know a release is pending, so you will have some lead time while we run through it. (We’ll be in IRC, #wordpress-dev.)
2. The “% selected” string is in core. The translator’s comment: This is a would-be plural string used in the media manager. If there is not a word you can use in your language to avoid issues with the lack of plural support here, turn it into “selected: %d” then translate it. For more see #22749.
3. Two strings, “Insert from URL” and “Set Featured Image”, were added to complete the media modal.
4. Two strings, “Refresh” and “Description”, were moved from the admin to the frontend, which meant a POT file change. (We can probably make this seamless in the future.)
Thanks for your patience this cycle. It has been a very enjoyable one.
There has been a request to split a string into two by adding context to them: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/22724. The string is “Random,” and is used in both galleries and the links widget. The same string was also used for both in 3.4. I am inclined to leave it as is for 3.5 and deal with it in 3.6. Does this affect you? Please comment to the ticket.
Hello all, there were two (very short) strings added after WordPress 3.5′s string freeze to account for some final changes to the media UI:
- “Add to Gallery”, the title of a screen. There is also “Add to gallery” (a button), which was added previously.
- “Reverse order”, used on a button to flip the sort order of a gallery.
Two more strings already existed, but they moved from the admin to the frontend. If these strings were longer, I would try to manually copy it over from the other project, but it is probably easier if you just re-translate it:
- “No items found.”
- “Set featured image”
I appreciate your understanding.
Our target release date remains Wednesday, December 5, 2012. Zé asked for a prediction as to time. I’m not sure yet, but the window would be between 1600 UTC and 2330 UTC, hopefully toward the earlier side but you never know.
Strings for WordPress 3.5 are now frozen.
The targeted release date remains December 5, 2012 (the same date we announced at the start of the cycle).
Unfortunately, this means I’m very late in formally declaring a string freeze. This is entirely on me and I accept responsibility for the delay.
With the exception of the About page, we’ve had only a handful of string changes over the last week. Most translations seem to be in fantastic shape this release, which is a great sight to see. I hope all of you are able to step up and push through.
If you find any typos or other issues, please report them to http://core.trac.wordpress.org/. If you have any questions (or are just plain frustrated with me), feel free to leave a comment.
WordPress 3.4.2 has been released. No string changes from 3.4.1 or 3.4. It does contain some security fixes, so please build and release.
wppolyglots has moved to make.wordpress.org/polyglots!
Note you’ll now be using WordPress.org usernames here. If there are any issues, let me know.
All of your existing subscriptions were transferred over (post or comment subscriptions via email, RSS, or Jabber). We also automatically mapped WP.com usernames to WP.org usernames when transferring the posts.
3.4.1 has just been released. No string changes. There is a 3.4.x project in GlotPress for you. The revision is 21156 for either tags/3.4 or branches/3.4. This is a security update, so speed is important. Cheers!
[ Edit: I no longer need an answer to this question. ] All translators — Did anyone have a locale.php file (like ru_RU.php) in 3.3 that they no longer included in 3.4? If so, what is your locale? Those files are going to sit there (and be included) after an upgrade, so we need to remove them manually: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/20974. Unfortunately it is not easy to ascertain which locales used to have them but no longer do.
WordPress 3.4 will be released within the hour. Start your engines.
Hello everyone — WordPress runs a site called Browse Happy, which you’ve probably seen, at http://browsehappy.com/. Here’s a bit about it:
Using an outdated browser makes your computer unsafe. Browse Happy is a way for you to find out what are the latest versions of the major browsers around. You can also learn about alternative browsers that may fit you even better than the one you are currently using.
The theme is fully internationalized and I would like to offer it in as many languages as possible.
Like WordPress.org does when directing you to a locale site, Browse Happy will be able to detect your browser’s preferred language and then offer you the ability to view the site in that other language. We will also do either a subdomain or a path to allow direct-linking to a local site (so de.browsehappy.com or browsehappy.com/de/).
You will then be able to link to the localized version in core. Browse Happy is only 29 strings, so I hope to launch with a few languages next week!
Here is the project on translate.wordpress.org. Let me know if you have any questions. Happy translating!
A release of version 3.3.2 is imminent. There are no string changes. This is a security release, so please release as soon as possible.
An important note. One, you can still build from SVN, there is requirement to use GlotPress at this time. Two, I made numerous changes to many locale’s /dist folders — the folder at i18n.svn.wordpress.org where we pull readme.html, wp-config-sample.php, etc. — in preparation for 3.4. You are going to want to use your 3.3 branch or tag for /dist if that is the case. (I made branches for you if they didn’t exist.)
So: Check to make sure you are using the right /dist.
You can check the changelog to your SVN directory here: http://i18n.trac.wordpress.org/log/pt_BR (change pt_BR to your locale folder). And browse yours here: http://i18n.trac.wordpress.org/browser/pt_BR.
And: TEST YOUR BUILDS.
If there are any issues, post here, and I, Zé, and others will do my best to resolve them.
