We're just posting a quick status update to keep everyone in the loop. The content delivery network came online as expected on June 2nd and server performance is much-improved as are page load times for both logged-in and guest users. We've been doing a ton of app updates over the past few weeks to keep things humming along, including the new Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition 6.0 Beta 1 release. We even have a nice new app, Instantbird Portable 1.0, for everyone to use. Hosting costs are still rising with our increasing popularity so we've secured another bridge loan until our next big release. Donations are always appreciated to help out with everything.

So, let's get to it...

We've posted an updated set of strings for translation for the 2.0 Platform that we could use your help with. We've added in all the current translations submitted by the community as well for review. This new set of strings is particularly important for adding apps in languages other than English as the new app directory on the site which will allow for multilingual app descriptions won't be coming out until after 2.0.

Rather than post a very-late progress update for the week ending tonight, I'll roll it up with the next and post it in a few days with some new developments. Nothing too much to report yet other than catching up on outdated apps, getting a pre-release of GnuCash out (please test!), Firefox 4.0 RC 1, finishing up LibreOffice and a few more behind the scenes things. Hope everyone had a good weekend!
