End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.

FGM goes multilingual

For a start, French and German were the only additional languages available, but others have been added since then, and if you feel like starting translations in another language, just contact the site team.

Note that many parts of the UI are not translated so, if you are using an additional language and see an english string which should be translated, please send a note using the same contact page, with :

  1. the URL on which the untranslated string exists
  2. the untranslated string
  3. its translation in your langage

Regarding actual content, since most of the pages are still in english, every non-english version lists the english page where no translation exists for the chosen language. The following is a breakup of pages by language.
