gtranslator R 0.99
Hi alltogether, the interested users, friends & packagers of gtranslator, one of the powerful gettext po files editing programs! :-)
There is a new release of gtranslator (# 0.99) out there, which
is the first one for the GNOME 2.x platform and working quite good
and can be used to work with it - the downloads are being capable
from www.gtranslator per
The official homepage for gtranslator is still and actively http://www.gtranslator.org - the screenshots there are outdated but the files are present there - for further developmental progress you can touch, look, code in the CVS module "gtranslator" in the GNOME CVS repo - btw, the file release is tagged there "gtranslator-0-99" if you don't want to use the tarball but the CVS style of doing things.
Announcements to the main Linux sites will also go out shortly now and hopefully our packagers will also put up their packages of gtranslator 0.99 quite soon, so that you can try this quite important and great progress in gtranslator development which has been made by the new maintainer and developer of gtranslator: by Ross Golder <firstname.lastname@example.org> - thanks to him for bringing gtranslator back to life (to quote Evanescence hehe ;-)) and to take the adventure of porting it onto GNOME 2.x and getting the most important bugs out of it, thanks!
Here comes the NEWS file excerpt for this release in short:
Now have got much fun with playing it and/or getting used to it, it's a quite useful and stable release and you should get a look at it and bug us via http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=gtranslator and help us to get track of the important bugs, problems in gtranslator.
Thanks for the attention and back to work.

orbitcpp requires ORBit > 2.5, such as that used by GNOME 2.2.
orbitcpp is based on the old ORBit/C++ project for ORBit 1.

I'm happy to present the first ever gedit release done in Ireland. Version 2.2.2 of gedit is mainly a translation update, but it has a couple of fixes for other stuff as well:
Quark is an audio player, for geeks, by geeks. It runs in the background with access provided via a FIFO in the filesystem. It uses GStreamer for playing music, and can therefore play any file format supported by GStreamer.
Quark can now be passed a .m3u or .pls playlist, and it will add the songs contained in the list. Fixed bugs in adding recursive directories. Bugs in gstreamer 0.6.2 have caused a workaround which only allows Quark to play MP3 streams (see gstreamer bug #94113).
