  • @donho What is the practice of adding translations if the RC version already appears? The translation file will no longer be added to the stable version? I’m asking because I do not know exactly when to translate file to be included before the stable version appears. Doing a translation before RC we risk that something new may appear. Making a translation after RC version looks late because it’s not included in the stable version. Would adding only translation files after releasing the RC version (plus obvious bugs), but before the stable version appeared, would it make sense?



  • @ArkadiuszMichalski said in Notepad++ 7.8.9 RC 2:

    Translation files are included before doing RC, since RC means “Release Candidate”, and once RC is validated by the community (ie. no regression reported), the tested binaries are kept for the release (there are some exceptions though). The updated translation files come after RC will be included in the next release.
