Pan 0.136 is far too busy being delicious

Good news for those still using News (as in Newsgroups, Usenet, and Newsreaders): a new release of the GNOME/GTK+ newsreader Pan is out.  Special thanks to Heinrich Müller for putting tremendous effort into making this possible.

The Pan 0.136: “Far too busy being delicious…” release introduces a plethora of bug fixes and improvements over the previous release, so everybody using older versions of Pan is encouraged to upgrade. Among the new features, you can find: attachments uploading, TLS (SSL) connections, PGP handling, and so on.

Read the official announcement or download Pan and test it to pieces.

And for those of you who haven’t had a chance to meet Judge Fudge yet, take a look here.

GNOME Localization Update for Q4 2011

Totally forgot to post the report here, so doing it now.

During Q4 2011, GNOME language teams worked on translating GNOME apps and docs into tens of supported languages in the stable GNOME 3.2.x and the development GNOME 3.3.x branches.

Several GNOME language teams participated in the Google Code-in 2011 program. This program is for 13-17 year old high school students working on a number of tasks related to localization, documentation, development, and other areas of interest. The program ran from November 21, 2011 to January 16, 2012.

Two GNOME language teams took part in the 2011 GNOME Women Outreach Program, the Belarus team with Kasia Bondarava (kasia) as the intern and Ihar Hrachyshka as her mentor, and the Xhosa team with Andiswa Mvanyashe (andiswa) as the intern and Friedel Wolff as her mentor. The Outreach Program ran from September 16, 2011 to March 12, 2012.
