One of the things I've ignored for quite a few years is allowing most of the user interface to be translatable (L10N to those in the biz). I decided a few weeks ago to get Jnes working in Unicode so I could play around with it and I got most of the user interface to allow external message catalogs, check out japanese.
The only downside of releasing in Unicode is that it will no longer support windows 98/ME, I'm not sure this is a big deal, worst case users of those platforms can continue to use 0.6, but this is your opportunity to voice an opinion.
Most of the menus are now translatable, and the dialogs as well. The catalog itself is encoded in UTF-8, I know that will be a welcome design choice to many of our friends in other countries as well! There is many more suprises in store for the next version, till next time!
