    I’ve noticed a lot of updates the past couple of days. I hadn’t pushed any of them to my production environment, but I was just about to do so. Is it safe to use version 2021.4?

    For the first time in the many years of the life of Stop Spammers, we finally made it translation-ready. This was and still is a daunting task. Even after cleaning up a ton of the wording and moving it over to documentation on the website, there were still over 700 strings to get ready.

    This isn’t just a difficult task because of that number, but because there are many variables on how strings should be prefixed based on context:

    Functionally, we simply missed some issues with our tests that were then discovered out in the wild. Because of this, we’ll be introducing a Beta Tester Program to help greatly decrease these issues in the future.

    It’s still going to require more work over time for improving translations, and we’re going to need help from the community. We’ll be adding a new page to the website soon to let people know how they can get involved.

    Anyway, yes, after a panicky 24 hours, all is stable again. 🙂
