Minibloq v0.81.Beta UpdatePack-1 is here!

As promised, the UpdatePack-1 (UP1 for short) is available now. And it's the result of the constributions of many users (thanks again!). Aside from minor bug fixes (all of them related to the new internationalization subsystem), it includes the following 5 complete language packages (by complete we mean that both the GUI and the blocks tooltips has been translated): French, German, Dutch, Catalan and Galician. We also decided to add 2 partial translations: Romanian and Hebrew. Of course, we still need help to get Minibloq translated to other languages, or to complete the partial translations. Revisions on the current translations are also welcome (we may have bugs, since all this is new...)
Here is a small screen capture from the Properties window (View->Properties menu) once the UP1 is installed:
To get and install the UP1, please these steps (here we are using Windows 7, but it should be even simpler in other Windows versions):
  1. Donwload the UpdatePack-1 from here.
  2. Now you have to decompress it inside your current Minibloq.v0.81.Beta installation path as shown in the images below:

  3. Now the operating system will ask if you want to replace the files with the same name: please just say Yes:
  4. And again, the OS will ask something (this time, if you want to merge some folders with the same name). And again: please say Yes:
  5. And yes: once again, the OS will ask if you are sure to replace some files. And once again, please press Copy and Replace:
  6. And finally, the OS will ask to you for administrator permission. Please press the  Continue button:
Finally, please remember that if you have any question or idea about internationalization, you can always post to this forum thread.
