What's New on Tatoeba? - Your biweekly recap #20

What's New on Tatoeba will be published biweekly until the end of August.


EVENT


It's been now one month since our Kodoeba event started.


  • As far as the internal code goes:
    • Our participants have solved five issues, and seven others are on their way. You can find the details on GitHub.
    • Alexs has asked for feedback about the tags: https://tatoeba.org/eng/wall/show_message/35555. Be sure to share your thoughts if you'd like to see the tags in Tatoeba become more useful!
  • As for the external projects:
    • lbdx has updated Tatominer: https://tatoeba.org/eng/wall/show_message/35527.
    • The other projects are starting to take shape, it's still too early to showcase anything. We'll have to wait until mid or end of July.


UPDATES

  • The search has been improved for languages using Arabic scripts, Indonesian and Tagalog. Many thanks to Yorwba.
  • The number of messages in the private messages has been localized, thanks to Ricardo14.
  • There's now a reset icon in the inputs of the advanced search. Thanks to Roverandom789133 for adding this.
  • We no longer unnecessarily store IPs in our contributions logs. Thanks to jpear1 for cleaning this up.

What's New on Tatoeba? - Your biweekly recap #19

What's New on Tatoeba will be published biweekly until the end of August

EVENT

Kodoeba, Tatoeba's first coding event, has started at the beginning of June! 27 participants joined us to improve Tatoeba in one or another way. A big thank you and a warm welcome to all of them! We will regularly hear of their work in this column.

UPDATES

  • The way to add tag has been modified to include the number of tagged sentences and make the suggestions case-insensitive. This was one of many issues related to tags that we want to take care of in the more or less near future. Thanks to alexs, rumpelstilzchen, and all the people who helped solving this.
  • Using a single quote in the search input used to make the search string disappeared. Thanks to gillux for correcting this bug.
  • The pages showing sentences using a specific tag now display the most-recently tagged sentences first. Thanks to bakananbanjin (a participant of Kodoeba) for taking care of this.

Tatoeba scheduled maintenance on Sunday June 7, 2am to 5am UTC

This Sunday (June 7) at 2am UTC, there will be scheduled maintenance for a maximum of 3 hours. Tatoeba will be unavailable during this time. We will be using this time to upgrade our systems, which will allow us to implement new features in the future. For what it’s worth, Tatodev will remain online.
