After hearing a few conversations on
the mailing list, I think we all agree that the language packs are in good
shape to be released. However, we need more packaging and polishing works
for the translation server, message editor, and other tools.
We discussed the release plan on Monday's
Babel Development Status Meeting. We think it makes sense to release the
language packs to the community so Eclipse users can use them together
with the Galileo release. We are thinking to release the language packs
as Babel Release 0.7.
After that, we will focus on enhancing
the packaging and polishing of the translation server and other tools.
If we are satisfy with the works in the fall, we will release that in fall
Any comments on the release plan?
The success of the Eclipse project is
the result of great community contribution. Babel is a new project and
is in need of more help! If you could contribute in any of the project
areas, which include the translations, the translation server UI, back-end,
runtime tools, that will help make the Babel successful. Thanks!
