Automatic news items when users join a language or project team
Project level permissions overriding others and allowing even better delegation
New project languages are initialised from templates if nothing is present on the file system
A new field for the project's source language simplify some management and allows new features
Notes for server administrators
Pootle no longer depends on statsdb and SQLite
Files on disk are only synced with the database on download or commit. The old behaviour can be restored at the cost of performance. A manage.py command can sync to files on the command line.
The database is now much larger. This should have no negative impact on performance, but we strongly suggest using MySQL or PostgreSQL for the best performance.
Pootle 2.1 will upgrade the database automatically from Pootle 2.0 installations (the upgrade could take some time, depending on your installation)
Pending files are not used for suggestions any more, and will also be migrated to the database during upgrade.
New settings are available in localsettings.py - compare your existing one to the new one
Pootle 1 installations can easily migrate everything excluding project permissions. We encourage administrators to configure permissions with the new permission system which is much simpler to use, since permissions on the language and project level are now supported.
