Weblate 1.8 has been released today. It comes with lot of improvements, especially in registration process where you can now use many third party services.

Full list of changes for 1.8:

  • Please check manual for upgrade instructions.
  • Nicer listing of project summary.
  • Better visible options for sharing.

You can login there with demo account using demo password or register your own user. Ready to run appliances will be soon available in SUSE Studio Gallery.

Weblate is also being used https://l10n.cihar.com/ as official translating service for phpMyAdmin, Gammu, Weblate itself and others.

Further development of Weblate would not be possible without people providing donations, thanks to everybody who have helped so far!

Some questions:

Is an official Debian package planned? The documentation states, that python-social-auth is missing from Debian, but python-django-social-auth is in wheezy. Is it not the same?

Does weblate support SVN or is it planned? I like to use weblate for an SVN project, but don't want to install a git-SVN-bridge.

No they are not the same, so the package is missing.

Creating Debian package would be nice, though I would have to figure out how to properly integrate Django and South migrations into Debian packaging.

About SVN: Not planned, Weblate too much relies on distributed VCS (see http://docs.weblate.org/en/latest/faq.html#does-weblate-support-other-vcs-than-git ).
