SENTENCE CLEANUP

Tatoeba update (July 20th, 2015)

* SEARCH *
* Performing an advanced search without text keywords now works correctly when both the "fewest words first" option and the "Reverse order" checkbox are enabled.

* Performing an advanced search without text keywords now works correctly when the "Random order" option is selected.

* When searching in Hebrew, vowels are ignored, and final and non-final letters are treated as identical.

* Cyrillic characters that do not fall into the main Russian range are now handled correctly in searches.

* Previously, sentences that were recently translated might show up in a search for sentences without translations. This has been fixed.

* Previously, searches that were limited to sentences with indirect translations also found those with direct translations. This has been fixed.

* MISCELLANEOUS *
* The activity timeline now uses bar length exclusively, rather than bar length and color, to indicate the number of sentences added.

* The drop-down list displayed under a member's username has been changed. "My profile" has been added to the top, and "Edit profile" has been removed from the second position from the bottom.

* "Personal information" (name, country, birthday, homepage) and "Description" are now edited and saved together within a profile.

* Tooltips for the icons above a sentence were not displayed in certain browsers. This has been fixed.

* The message for the case where no search results are found has been simplified.

* The edit icon for personal lists is no longer broken across two lines.

* Previously, specifying random order for a search without any content would result in a sort by number of words. Now it results in a truly random sort.

* Previously, when a user specified in an advanced search that sentences must be written by native speakers, the results would include sentences by non-natives as well. This has been fixed.

* The latest contributions for Toki Pona and CycL are now displayed again.

* Duplicate lines in the exported tags.csv file have been eliminated.

** Tatoeba update (June 29th, 2015) **

* Languages in drop-down lists (except the ones for adding a new sentence and adding a translation, which have not yet been changed) are now displayed in two parts: the user-specific languages at the top, and the other languages below. If a user is logged in, the user-specific languages are the ones in his or her profile. Otherwise, they are the ones most recently selected.
* Searching for sentences not translated into a particular language is now faster.
* The "has audio" icon is now displayed correctly for translations in lists.
* Previously, when an attempt was made to auto-detect the language for a sentence, and auto-detection failed, the sentence was not added. This has been fixed.
* Searching for a user's sentences in a given language used to cause an incorrect message to be displayed when no results were found. This has been fixed.
