    Hi Normadize, I can see qTranslate has already been updated for WP 3.5.2, so even though the author is not really helping on the Support section, it seems he still keeps the plugin updated to the latest WP version... so I wonder if you still plan on re-writing the plug-in, and if so if you have any timing expectation...

    btw, I was lately considering switching to Polylang or even WPML, however I saw WPML might be even slower than qTranslate:

    So in this case, I'd rather stick to qTranslate and wait for your improvements :)

    3.5.2 had only security updates and "updating" qTranslate for 3.5.2 meant just changing define('QT_SUPPORTED_WP_VERSION', '3.5.1'); to define('QT_SUPPORTED_WP_VERSION', '3.5.2'); in qtranslate.php ... the plugin would have worked in 3.5.2 without this update, obviously.

    I had no time even for my own web dev hobbies lately. I should make time to release my qtranslate improvements given that I said I would, my apologies for the non-honored hope. I should hope that'll happen this month.

    I need at least someone else to test it though before posting/releasing (it's now too integrated with my plugin) so whoever is interested please email me at [ redacted ].

    My first response here but I have been reading this thread since the beginning.
    I used qTranslate in a previous project and now I am using it in two more webs. I think it is a really cool plugin (in fact, I made a donation because I think it worths it).
    The same way I think your work worths it, too.
    So...finally I am starting the translation with these two sites. I will be pleased to help you with testing.

    I see somebody of WP's staff hid your mail address. Is there any way we can PM here or something?

    Thanks for your work.

    Well, you have to thank the WP moderators then for their profound insight in limiting the improvement of WP plugins ... the WP forums do not provide with private messaging so in this instance there is effectively no way for users to contact each other for purposes such as this.

    Obviously, I'm not going to post hundreds/thousands of lines of code in the forums nor create a new plugin before it is tested by others so volunteers are needed for testing, but thanks to the WP moderators that's now basically impossible. I've developed and already using it for my websites so this is affecting the others, not me.
    I'm not going to post my email again.


    p.s. The thoughtful moderator might want to provide with the ToS/rules of the WP forums where it says that we are not allowed to leave our email address in any form (obfuscated or not).
