About this release 2.0.0rc2

This release contains many improvements and bug fixes. While it contains many general improvements, it also specifically contains needed changes and optimizations for the upcoming Pootle 2.8.0 and Virtaal releases.

It is just over 4 weeks since the last release and there are many improvements across the board. A number of people contributed to this release and we’ve tried to credit them wherever possible (sorry if somehow we missed you).

2.0.0rc2 vs 2.0.0rc1


Given the large number of important changes, mostly Python 3 support, it was decided that the next version will be 2.0.0 instead of 1.14.0 as previously planned. So 1.14.0-rc1 could be considered to be 2.0.0b0.
