5200R? 5106R? And BlueQuartz learns Danish and German.


Taco Scargo (former Sun Cobalt employee and BlueQuartz developer) asks about the status of the port to CentOS5. After all, a month has passed, but not much news has been posted on the developer mailing list.

Taco Scargo (former Sun Cobalt employee and BlueQuartz developer) asks about the status of the port to CentOS5. After all, a month has passed, but not much news has been posted on the developer mailing list.

Project leader Hisao Shibuya pedals back and suggests that we rather use the version number 5106R for this, as 5200R was reserved for "something else".

In the meantime a contributor donated a Danish translation of the BlueQuartz GUI interface to us. While attempting to implement it into the SVN code tree I run into problems. Although the GUI is multi langual, due to the fact that only Japanese and English were supported so far, some aspects of the modularity for future languages had been damaged over the years.

After some coding efforts this is fixed.

While I am at it I also do the German translation of the GUI interface. However, neither the fully working Danish mor the German translation of the GUI were ever officially released by the project leadership. So even after one year of their general availability in the SVN repository that code never made it to the update servers.

This is also true for a lot of other minor and major updates that Brian Smith, I and others contributed.
