We are pleased to announce immediate availablity of b2evolution 1.8.1 "Milestone".
This is a Release Candidate. This means that it is ready for production and basically the only thing missing is translations/localizations into more languages (English, French & German included).
Translators, now would be a good time to update translations.
Also, we are looking for someone to manage a central repository of translations/localizations/language packs (or whatever you want to call it). The idea would be to have something like locales.b2evolution.net linked into here.
Of course we would prefer someone who is doing localization himself, who has some minimal clue about UTF-8 and various charsets, who isn't afraid of uploading translations into CVS and who is willing to spend some time communicating with the translators (who will send you random .po files without any identification if you don't ask!)
Okay, that's already a lot! You could also host the site, but we'll handle that part if you don't want to
