Say ¡Hola!, Bonjour, Hello to Etherpad 1.2

Language Support

We now provide really easy to implement language support(i18n) thanks to Mozilla and Marcel for doing most of the heavy lifting. We support English, German and French out of the box but adding your own language is super easy so get stuck in!

Software Freedom Conservancy membership

We’re in the final steps of finalizing our SFC membership and we’re extremely pleased with how things are progressing. We have worked with SFC to ensure their agreement template (used by many open source projects) will stand up in European courts aswell as US so hopefully we improved the future open source, even if just a little it means a lot to us.

Your settings.json file can now be edited through the web UI at /admin/settings and once you have edited your settings.json you can restart your server right from the web UI. No more CLI, -5 man points.

And even more… We have been busy!
