We are happy to announce the initial release of Flies 1.0
and its availability now for the jboss.org community for
translation work at http://translate.jboss.org/
Flies is a web-based system for translators to translate
documentation and software online using a web-browser. It
is written in Java and uses modern web technologies like
JBoss, Seam, GWT, Hibernate, and a REST API. It currently
supports translation of Publican documentation through PO
files. Projects can be uploaded to and downloaded from a
Flies server using a Maven plugin or a Python client.
For developers and writers: By using Flies for your document
translations, you can open up your project for translations
*without* opening your entire project in version control.
For translators: No need to deal with PO files, gettext or
a version control system - just log in to the website, join
a language team and start translating, with translation memory
(history of similar translations) and the ability to see updates
from other translators in seconds.
The first release has been deployed at http://translate.jboss.org/
and is ready to accept documentation for jboss.org projects
for translation. Visit http://community.jboss.org/wiki/Flies for
instructions on how to get started.
The Flies wiki documentation is here:

The Final code freeze is scheduled for Friday, December 17. There are still component upgrades planned and bug fixes
identified for inclusion. The test suites have remained stable in this final phase with only 10 failures
in the overall AS integration suite.
If there are issues that you plan to resolve by the freeze be sure there is a JBAS JIRA filed.
One other goal of the release is to be sure that our AS 6 documentation represents the functionality
provided in the Final distribution.
AS 6 documentation is being tracked here:
If you have contributions to the documentation, be sure to comment there.
The documentation for AS 6 and/or references using specific technologies with AS 6 can
be seen here:
Let's wrap this up in time for the holidays.
