On this special palindromic date, a new version of Transposh is released. This version was held back for way too long but since I finally got the time, it is up and available.
So, what good is it for?
First, I would like to thank Julien Ahrens from RCE Security for his help in detecting of several weaknesses in the previous version, and working with me on providing fixes and validating them. Julien provided me with the information and full disclosure and was very patient with me until I finally had the time to fix everything. I can only give him my highest recommendation, and show my appreciation here. THANKS!
Other things in this version include a fix for the notorious regression with Google Translate, causing people to get [object window] and/or duplicate content. If you are using Google Translate, please use the new button in the utilities tab in order to delete duplicate data. Saving an up to date backup of your human translations is always a good idea.
There are also tons of improvements to the misleading tab called translation editor (which, in hindsight I should have probably called “translation management”) which allows you to have better control and visibility of current translations.
Lots of work here was dedicated to compatibility with PHP8 and wordpress 5.9, I believe that most problems were eliminated, and the widgets should work in the interface again, I want to thank all the users that helped me with testing this, and especially Alex and Marcel. thanks guys!
The next version will hopefully come sooner, I think that I will take development and forums to github or a similar platform. Let me know if you have any thoughts on that.
