Released on:

This release contains a full redesign of the language switcher feature. It should fix a number of issues and glitches, and will provide some new features.

Amongst the main things to mention:

  • New admin user interface
  • Better rendering of language switcher in menus
  • Ability to add language switcher in more than one menu
  • Ability to hide the current language
  • A new API for theme/plugin authors to create custom language switcher templates

The overall language switcher design should not change for the moment.
