Avid readers of the commits list will have noticed an impressive number of commits rolling in from Hannes Janetzek, author of the Everything launcher who is currently in absentia working on his doctorate, and Massimo Maiurana, captain of the translation team who probably eats bricks of bran for breakfast to complement his usual stellar performance in getting changes pushed from the internationalization team. They’ve both been putting in a lot more hours than usual lately to ensure that things got polished up in time for release, and it shows with the last-minute bug fixes and translation updates.

Other Improvements Today:
- Fewer leaking strings
- Systray does layouts better when middle icons are removed
E17 release is on schedule, watch for the next post.
