WPiOS French translation

Frank Klein (fklu) mentioned that the French localization of WPiOS has new translations waiting to be verified. (Props Frank for taking the time to do the translations.) Glotpress shows the French translation at 65% so it would be great to get these verified and get that number higher.  We’re making an action item to pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” polyglots and help get the ball rolling.

WPWinPhone 1.9.2

@daniloercoli submitted version 1.9.2 to Microsoft on Tuesday.  This is a bug fix release addressing 12 bugs and crashes. Two more significant issues were identified shortly after the app was submitted. Since there is no mechanism for the developer to reject a submission we will have a 1.9.3 version ready and waiting as soon as 1.9.2 is approved.

WPiOS 3.4

Apple has approved the app and it is pending developer release, however, at the last minute a server-side issue was detected.  Our plan is to release the app later today once the server-side bug has been squashed.

@beaucollins is drafting an announcement post for the blog.

Congrats to everyone who helped make 3.4 happen!


Version 2.2.7 is in the Google Play store and is looking stable.  We’ll submit to the Nook and Amazon stores today.

The team is moving forward on the planned UI updates.  Will Norris (willnorris) has already made progress on the new sliding menu and is working on integrating in all the right places.


@karmatosed has posted some updated wireframes that are the result conversations with @isaackeyet.  The team will take a look at these and leave comments on the post.
