After a very long time between releases, I have finally been able to complete things for a new release.
I have finalized things to a string freeze and have nearly all bugs squashed. So I am now asking for help in updating the translation files.
Please see this forum thread for those details and/or comments/support

If you are capable, willing and can spare some time:

Volunteers, please post here your intentions to minimize duplication of efforts and/or if someone wants to help someone else.

I will be releasing _rc3 this weekend with the latest bugfixes and updates. But the best way is to download a copy of the svn and submit svn diff's for updates to existing translations or submit new translations to our sourceforge patches tracker.
I have tried to update the translations as best I could for some format changes to some strings, but I could see some strings were mixed up by the updates (they just look wrong, even though I don't know the language)

For tools to test your translations. There is a script in the "~/porthole/trunk/scripts/" directory named "pocompile.sh" that will compile the translation files and install them inside the svn checkout for you to check your work.

Porthole-svn does not need to be installed to run on your system. From a terminal, just cd into the scripts directory and run the porthole script there.
Code:
# ./porthole -l -d ALL

That will run the svn of checkout porthole instead of the installed version.

the -l flag means run the local svn version.

the -d flag means print out "ALL" debug print statements. In case you find a bug. There is usually good info to help trace the bug.

For new translations. Please create translation entries for the "~/porthole/trunk/porthole.desktop" file as well.


Thank you,

P.S. Don't forget to submit the name(s) you would like added to the AUTHORS file for your work.

Taking German. I've already updated most of it and hope I have it completed somewhere at the end of the week.

No one else yet. Thank you.

Please check all the existing translations. I think poedit messed up some when I was updating them with the new messages.pot. The little I could read in some of the languages, some just looked wrong.

Again, Thank you.

Bump, for visibility now that the GMN article is out.

Still looking for updates to existing or new language translations. I appreciate all help provided.

rc4 is Hopefully the final release candidate before the final. Any translation updates you are able to do are welcomed.

Thank you...

OK, update. I hope to release porthole-0.6.0 final next weekend June 22.

I will include any translation updates submitted by that that time.

If you have been considering updating a language, that is the target date for inclusion in this release.
Anything submitted after that will be included in later versions.

Thank you
