those are really nice news and will make both beginners and advanced
user's life easier. Nice to see that our translation efforts didn't go

For some reason, I can't find new osgeo4w-setup.exe anywhere, seems like the version on
the main page is still the old one. Multiligual version was not uploaded yet?

Anyway, thanks for your work Jürgen.

JEF> Hi there,

JEF> over the last few days I made several changes to OSGeo4W, that I would like to
JEF> keep you posted about:

JEF> 1. I updated the QGIS dependencies Qt, SIP, PyQt4, PyQwt5 and GRASS including
JEF> the GDAL plugin.  After that qgis, qgis1.1 and qgis-dev were rebuild using
JEF> those.  I also switched to GDAL 1.6 in the process.

JEF> The scripts used to build the GRASS package (including patches to the GDAL
JEF> GRASS plugins) are at [1].

JEF> 2. The nightly build of qgis trunk, that I used to upload to our website, was
JEF> also moved to OSGeo4W. qgis-dev is now the nightly build.

JEF> The packaging scripts are in the qgis repository[2].

JEF> The build is done at 1am CEST and uploaded to upload.osgeo.org (about 4pm PDT
JEF> there).  After the upload osgeo4w-regen.sh and
JEF> osgeo4w-promote.sh are called to
JEF> update the setup.inis for the installer.

JEF> So be aware that, if you're uploading test packages to OSGeo4W in that window,
JEF> they might show up in setup.ini earlier than you intended them to.

JEF> 3. The installer was also improved a bit.  The existing russian and ukrainian
JEF> translation and a new german translation are now integrated into the main
JEF> executable, so there is no need for multiple setups anymore.

JEF> The express installation targets now include GRASS and the QGIS express target
JEF> was changed from qgis to qgis-full.  The latter is a pseudo package that
JEF> installs qgis (1.0) including optional dependencies that enable Python support,
JEF> the GRASS plugin and some additional python packages that are used by popular
JEF> qgis python plugins.   See [3+4].
