Framrekkari IconOne day after Framrekkari was initially released to Jolla store on Sailfish OS powered devices, the first major update is released and available at the same place. Framrekkari 1.1.0 completes the translation work flow by implementing the ability to mark strings as reviewed or not reviewed. Marking items as reviewed/not reviewed is possible directly on the translation page as well as int the string list (by context menu/press and hold). Because of the limitations in the Transifex API you have again to know by yourself if your user account has access granted to these operation on the chosen project.

You are not a coder but you can speak different languages and want to help software projects to be available in your native or any other language you speak? Then there is most probably a way for you to help. Many free software projects are using platforms like Transifex to translate their content into different languages. With Framrekkari, a client for these services, that currently supports the Transifex API, it is now possible for you to translate everywhere on your Sailfish OS powered device.

Markat Icon

Today Markat version 0.2.0 was released to Jolla Store. This intermediate release brings some new features and UI improvements.

Most prominent new feature is the support for item variations/options, like different colors and sizes.

Auction items in search result lists are now automatically updated every 6 – 20 seconds. This behaviour can be switched off in the settings, as you can now also do with automatic updates in item view.

To make searches more comfortable it is now possible to store searches (at least their parameters) locally for future use.

I am planning to release version 0.3.0 next week with complete integration of shopping and finding API (still no in app orders and bid placement, that is trading API). There will also be more UI improvements.

Der Deutschlandfunk brachte eben in der Sendung Deutschland Heute einen Beitrag über die Gedanken der japanischen Gemeinde in Deutschland zum AKW-Unfall in Fukushima vor drei Jahren. Die dort zu hörenden Deutsch-Japaner sollen 2011 vor den Folgen des Unfalls nach Deutschland geflüchtet sein. Das zu hörende Maß an Integration in die Deutsche Gesellschaft ist beeindruckend, was sich nicht nur am fast perfekten Deutsch der Interviewten hören lässt. Sie haben haben sich auch nahtlos die Deutsche Angstkultur angeeignet.

ocNews 1.8.0 on Sailfish

Today I released ocNews 1.8.0 that brings some long awaited new features. On both, Sailfish OS and MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan, it is now possible to directly navigate between news items. On Sailfish this is also possible via the cover actions. Next and previous items are delegated from the list you called them from. So it also recognizes the sorting of the list and loads previous and next article based on your settings. On Sailfish OS you can find these navigation in the push up and push down menus, on Harmattan there are icons in the bottom toolbar.

Reaktionen und Berichterstattung über die schweizerische eidgenössische Volksinitiative «Gegen Masseneinwanderung» ließen schon fast den Eindruck aufkommen, die Schweiz wolle sich in Zukunft mit einer Mauer, mindestens aber mit einem Zaun umgeben. Während die Franzosen sogleich begannen, mal wieder ein bisschen Grande Nation zu spielen und der Schweiz androhten, man werde die gegenseitigen Beziehungen überprüfen, vernahm man in Deutschland nur zwei Worte, nämlich gegen und Einwanderung. Die reichten aus, um sich mit dem eigentlichen Text der Initiative nicht weiter beschäftigen zu müssen. Sie erleichterten es vielmehr, sich besser echauffieren und im Glanz der eigenen überlgenen Toleranz sonnen zu können.

Die Empörung über Victoria Nulands Fuck the EU scheint sich ja mittlerweile wieder gelegt zu haben, fand sie ja größtenteils auch nur in der Sphäre europäischer Eliten und Medien statt. Ersetzt wurde sie am gestrigen Sonntag wahrscheinlich auch durch den Ausgang des Schweizer Volksentscheids zur Zuwanderung, dessen Kernaussage ja ähnlich übersetzt werden kann.

Aber auch vorher schon kam bei der breiten Masse an Bürgern von EU-Mitgliedstaaten keine rechte Empörungsstimmung auf, was wohl daran liegen mag, dass die über die EU mittlerweile das gleiche denken wie Frau Nuland.
