Hi All (and especially translators)

As of today please note that we are entering string freeze for the run
up to the next release. If you are committing bug fixes please avoid
changing any strings. Translation .ts files have been updated in SVN
so please update your local svn checkouts. The period for translations
will close January 27 2008 (i.e. about one week from now) and then we
will be branching for release. Any translations submitted to us after
that time will only be included in the next release, so please submit
what you have by then even if it is not complete.

There was some discussion on the IRC channel today about the naming of
this release. I would like to proceed with the release as planned but
there are a great deal of new features incorporated from branches in
this release which inevitably means new bugs. So not wanting to
deviate from our release schedule, but at the same time wanting to
indicate the fact that there are a number of unresolved issues, we
will be going about the normal release process, but releasing as QGIS
0.9.2rc1 (rc signifying release candidate). It is our hope that by
building packages and making a rc release we can give early adopters
ready to use binaries to commence more detailed testing and bug
reporting. We will follow up 0.9.2rc1 with a bug triage release
focusing on stabilising new features and improving render performance.

As always you can track the release plans via the checklist at:


(I will update this page to indicate the rc1 status soon)

If you have any questions about the translation process, please see
the following page which I have recently updated with instructions on
how to generate a .ts file for a new locale.


Many thanks to all the translators out there for the great work you do!
