Tatoeba update (September 27th, 2014)

Improvement of the search feature
  • The priority in which sentences are displayed in a search result has been improved: sentences with an owner will be displayed before sentences without any owner, and unapproved sentences (whether they have an owner or not) will be displayed last.
  • Uppercase letters with diacritics are now properly assimilated to their lowercase version in a search. The problem was that searching for instance "ça va" would not return sentences containing "Ça va" (with the ç in uppercase). This should now be fixed.

Furigana and romaji
  • Furigana for Japanese sentences is now displayed properly (this has been fixed last week). It was previously displayed with katakana and was displayed on all the words. It is now displayed with hiragana, and only on words with kanjis.
  • The tool to convert Japanese text into romaji now displays romaji properly. It was previously displaying the output in katakana instead of latin letters.

Other fixes and changes
  • The random feature has been fixed for the following languages: Amharic, Cherokee, Lao, Mon, Sinhala, Tamil, Telugu, Tibetan.
  • References to a sentence number are now converted properly into a link if they are the first word of the message.
  • The "translate" button has been disabled on unapproved sentences.
  • An option was added in the settings to remember or not the last list selected. By default it is disabled.

Tatoeba update (September 3rd, 2014)

New design for messages
  • The main change in this update is the new design for comments on sentences, messages on the Wall, and private messages.
  • You will now also be able to use the sentence URL syntax everywhere, and not only for comments on sentences. The syntax doesn't require brackets anymore (you can simply type #123 instead of [#123]). If you were not aware of this feature: for instance typing #123 in your message will be displayed as a link to the corresponding sentence.
  • The button to send a private messages to the author of a message is now present on all the messages, and not just for comments on sentences.
Other fixes
  • The tags count is updated properly. It was previously not incremented/decremented when adding a tag to a sentence.
  • The sentences count is updated properly. Same issues as with tags, the count was not incremented/decremented properly when adding a sentence.
