It’s time to head to translate.wordpress.org and finish translating the last batch of new strings.

Please don’t forget that in order to qualify for an automatic release, you need to have all strings in the following projects translated 100%:

We also decided to keep the design as close to the existing Rosetta theme as possible for now. So while you’ll see some changes—primarily in font size and margins—the overall look and feel should not be too far off. The goal was not to revolutionize the way international sites look, but rather to bring the design closer to parity with the root wordpress.org site.

A list of all locales supported by WordPress in https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/ sites will automatically use the new theme. Once the theme is translated to 100% for an existing locale, it will be activated for its Rosetta site. If you do encounter bugs or unforeseen behavior, please leave a comment on #2861-meta.

Thanks to @ocean90 for raising the issue and for his continued feedback on this effort.
