Hi all, here I am blogging for the well known unwritten rule: blog2release. Rekonq 0.6 stable is out. It will be our first release with (some) periodic bugfixing updates. We worked really hard to fix all bugs/regressions (yes, we had a few in 0.6beta) and now quite everything seems ok. When I say “quite”, I mean that the 2 bugs targeted 0.6 and not yet fixed we’ll hopefully be for 0.6.x🙂
Not really more to say about, just a little link to our poor website (volunteers to help?) where you can find the tarballs.
In 0.6 beta period, another software has seen a beta release (the forth): Mozilla Firefox. When I say its package coming in slackware testing dir I thought: time to test it! And so i did. Here is a screenshot:
Don’t you notice something familiar? I do🙂
Last thing: some days ago someone in IRC (cannot remember who and I’m too lazy now to read logs..) asked me about a script we use to download i18n strings. The script is in our scripts/ dir and it is called “download_i18n”. it is really a rude bash script, but it automatically download all po files for rekonq, rename them accordingly to the code language (eg: rekonq_it.po) and check if the translated strings are more than 80% of the total. It worked here for our release. But if you are a packager and you wanna use it, do it at your own risk!!
