Leaving big ball behind: 4.7

We decided to get rid of the ball that has grown next to Weblate’s leg during the latest years. Django admin interface is quite powerful; we like it, and it had been a massive help in Weblate’s origin years. But as the platform is getting more and more mature, user-friendly, and enterprise-ready, Django admin became not enough.

So Weblate 4.7 is bringing much tuning and polishing together with the introduction of Django admin interface farewell as the most significant new thing.

The move

Even if you are an experienced Weblate user, you might never touch the Django admin running under Weblate. And that’s alright.

Being a corporate or a huge foundation user, you probably needed it. But not for long! We created a complex GitHub issue for this big step. Feel free to check it to get the outlook, visit the linked issues for details, and share your ideas if you want to. A community effort is always better. S what’s left to do at the moment? Finish the powerful user management and introduce component list management. What are the component lists you ask? See the docs, and you can also suggest an improvement!


Another lovely improvement in 4.7 is a performance boost for linked repositories. It’s a powerful Weblate feature but not quite well known. Learn more about them and how the Component Discovery add-on can help your workflow.

Besides this, there are tons of bug fixes and stability improvements in this release, so it definitely worth the upgrade. Check all of them in the docs and dig deeper into all closed issues via the link provided.

High standard
