Blog Weblate / Pengumuman
After the new website, Weblate also has modern design of the app. More pretty, convenient, and faster loading. Check it out!
We have the new backups feature in Weblate that is easy to use, secure, and storage space-efficient. Set your Borg up and sleep well with Weblate.
Weblate 4.0 will be released in April 2020, but we want you to know about it now so you can prepare for significant changes in it. PostgreSQL run only and Python 3.x only support.
Weblate has grown a lot since the first lines of code in 2012, and we finally found some time to not only make new features but also create a new website. One that will serve better to the users and visitors, look modern, and represent well. I am not going to describe here all the pretty things of the site, this is a story about the creative process and things that happened around.
The official Weblate Docker container just received an important change. In case you are using it, you will probably have to adjust your configuration after upgrading.
For quite some time I have some cryptocurrencies on hold. These mostly come from times it was possible to mine Bitcoin on the CPU, but I've got some small payments recently as well.
Having publicly running web application always brings challenges in terms of security and in generally in handling untrusted data. Security wise Weblate has been always quite good (mostly thanks to using Django which comes with built in protection against many vulnerabilities), but there were always things to improve in input validation or possible information leaks.
Weblate 2.15 is almost ready (I expect no further code changes), so it's really great time to contribute to it's translations! Weblate 2.15 should be released early next week.
During last week I've noticed several interesting posts about challenges being free software maintainer. After being active in open source for 16 years I can share much of the feelings I've read and I can also share my dealings with the things.
Weblate is growing quite well in last months, but sometimes it's development is really driven by people who complain instead of following some roadmap with higher goals. I think it's time to change it at least a little bit. In order to get broader feedback I've sent out short survey to active project owners in Hosted Weblate week ago.
