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!

The repository has moved

We’re all grown up now and that means we need to move our heavily active repositories to an organization (ether) on github. We know there will be some fall out from this so here is how you safely get 1.2.

git remote set-url origin
git pull

New home page

Oooh look ma, Shiney! Being part of being all grown up means we
Thanks to Aaron and Alex now redirects to, this should help is remove some confusion about the project and comfort people that we’re moving things in the right direction.

Our blog has moved to, this is where we will be announcing new features and our popular plugin spotlights.

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.

Edit settings and restart Etherpad Lite in the web UI

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.

Plugin settings

Ever wanted to deploy a plugin but then had to jump into the source code just to edit one line? Well now you can store plugin settings in settings.json (you can edit this file at /admin/settings).

And even more… We have been busy!
