What's New?
===========

Release notes with screenshots are available at: http://gnome-subtitles.sf.net/ . Its summary follows.

This release brings the long waited support for subtitle translation, allow ing to create new translations and open existing translated subtitles, and well as saving them afterwards in separate files. Searching for text now in cludes the translations too.

Text editing information has also been improved, with the current cursor position being shown in the status bar, accompanied by the current editing mode (Insert or Overwrite). Also on text editing, support for Undo and Redo was greatly improved. While Undo/Redo used to apply to entire text lines before, it now applies to words, allowing to undo a text line incrementally. Moreover, the text that Undo/Redo applies to will be selected, and the cursor position set to where it was before that command.

This release is also the first to be translated to other languages. Many thanks to the following translators, who were the first ones to step in:
* Joan Duran (ca)
* Yumkee Lhamo (dz)
* Jorge Gonz=E1lez, Paulino Padial (es)
* Daniel Nylander (sv)

Other changes include:
* Try the remaining encodings when the first fails, on File Open
* Close the save error dialog immediately when accepting to open another file, so the error message isn't visible behind
* Use a different way of detecting the system data dir, which works on Fre
eBSD
* Fixed multiple menu underlines and accelerators
* Use an updated version of the character coding auto-detection library
* Fixed a bug related to searching backwards
* Fixed some errors with the documentation
