Weblate 2.14

Weblate 2.14 has been released today slightly ahead of the schedule. There are quite a lot of security improvements based on reports we got from HackerOne program, API extensions and other minor improvements.

Full list of changes:

  • Add glossary entries using AJAX.
  • The logout now uses POST to avoid CSRF.
  • The API key token reset now uses POST to avoid CSRF.
  • Weblate sets Content-Security-Policy by default.
  • The local editor URL is validated to avoid self-XSS.
  • The password is now validated against common flaws by default.
  • Notify users about imporant activity with their account such as password change.
  • The CSV exports now escape potential formulas.
  • Various minor improvements in security.
  • The authentication attempts are now rate limited.
  • Suggestion content is stored in the history.
  • Store important account activity in audit log.
  • Ask for password confirmation when removing account or adding new associations.
  • Show time when suggestion has been made.
  • There is new quality check for trailing semicolon.
  • Ensure that search links can be shared.
  • Included source string information and screenshots in the API.
  • Allow to overwrite translations through API upload.

If you are upgrading from older version, please follow our upgrading instructions.

You can find more information about Weblate on https://weblate.org, the code is hosted on Github. If you are curious how it looks, you can try it out on demo server. You can login there with demo account using demo password or register your own user. Weblate is also being used on https://hosted.weblate.org/ as official translating service for phpMyAdmin, OsmAnd, Turris, FreedomBox, Weblate itself and many other projects.

Should you be looking for hosting of translations for your project, I'm happy to host them for you or help with setting it up on your infrastructure.

Further development of Weblate would not be possible without people providing donations, thanks to everybody who have helped so far! The roadmap for next release is just being prepared, you can influence this by expressing support for individual issues either by comments or by providing bounty for them.
