Ok, no new entry in the last few days (3.5 years). Have been adjusting the beast dialogs the last few days as well as patching intltool to support full translation markup of strings. That is, allow multi-line markup of strings with functions, e.g. (_ “A ” “string”), same goes for (Q_) and (N_). The patch now needs to replace the scheme string hackery currently implemented in intltool which is used for script-fu and for script-fu only (because it uses _”A string” as markup, which isn’t even valid scheme syntax according to R5RS). In other news, it was Stefan’s birthday today, so we all (his mom, Dirk) went out for dinner and had some nice chitchat.
