Yesterday we did a trial update for WPML 2.7 on our own site. Overall, I’m very happy with the results. WPML.org’s response time was cut by about 50% (x2 faster) and some functionality that we’ve been long waiting for is finally working smoothly. However, a little bug related to RSS feed filtering caused Feedburner to send a bunch of news emails in all languages.
So, we’re going to spend Monday fixing these issues, retest and then we can release.
The new WPML release will bring:
- Much improved performance (both in the WP admin and in public pages)
- Much greater robustness to the menu sync functionality
- Support for Google-compliant language codes in translation links
- A bunch of warnings and notices fixed
I’ll write again, with full details when it clears QA and ready to ship.
Have a great weekend, and again, sorry for all these French and Chinese emails that we sent you.
