Call for Bug Reports and Translations


It has been a little over a month since our last release. We've received some excellent feedback on minor issues that have been addressed. As we get closer to the next release date, I'm asking the community to help with reporting any bugs or minor feature improvements so we can get the v1.6 code base as stable as possible.

I'm also requesting that anyone who has updated any of the non-English language files to please provide those to the glFusion Development team so we can include updated translations in the next release.

Our focus for v1.6.6 is to continue to improve the overall stability and user friendliness of glFusion. We welcome all feedback and suggestions!
