Hi everyone.

Quick status update on the release of the CSS validator.

1) the s/2008/2009/ and other UI changes, as well as the donation/ 
sponsorship block, have been taken care of

2) Thanks to Jean-Gui, we have a much better jar/war build, which  
should alleviate a lot of problems faced by people when installing the  
validator on their server.

3) I have gone through the bugzilla changes since the last CSS  
validator release (March 2008):
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/buglist.cgi?chfieldfrom=2008-03-12&chfieldto=Now&field-1-0-0=product&product=CSSValidator&query_format=advanced

And a first draft of a changelog follows:

* Fixing crashes of the validator due to some malformed syntax  
constructs

templates, velocity

* Translations completed: Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian,  
Swedish
Upcoming translations: Persian (Farsi)


Yves, Jean-Gui, I'm sure there is more  things that were worked on  
without having a bug report in bugzilla. Please feel free to add in  
this thread, I will collect everything and will quickly go through CVS  
commits to look for more.

Tomorrow I will go through the 50+ bugs listed above, and make sure we  
have regression tests in the test suite.
