intltool 0.29


A new release of the intltool package is available; this time codenamed "Jag pratar inte svenska".

The intltool package is a set of tools for translating the contents of data files using the gettext translation framework.

As always, we suggest everyone to upgrade.

Some of the changes since the last release:

  • Removed OrigTree in favor of more simply setting handlers directly in intltool-merge (Brian Cameron)
  • Work correctly with AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR (Thomas Vander Stichele, Chee Bin HOH and Kees Cook)
  • Make intltoolize return a correct exit status (Thomas Vander Stichele)
  • Fix usage of a bash-ism (Morten Welinder, Jonathan Blandford)
  • Translate GenericName in .desktop files (Kenneth Rohde Christiansen)
  • Framework to allow each format have inline comments (Denis Barbier)
  • Add $XGETTEXT_ARGS to allow passing extra args to xgettext (Danilo Segan)
  • Added support for .kbd files (Kenneth Rohde Christiansen)
  • Add $XGETTEXT_KEYWORDS to allow the use of other keywords (Danilo Segan)
  • Misc bug fixes (Noah Levitt, Tommi Komulainen)
