What’s happening with QW

(I really need to start doing these more often, the only trouble is, in software development things don’t move very quickly so you forget how long it has been since you last posted something!)
So recently I’ve been working with a very helpful guy from Poland to get non English translations of the User Interface available. Basically to flush the bugs out of the system and make things better. There is now a full Polish translation available and partial ones for French and Spanish.
My current effort, and this will be released in version 2.7, is focused on allowing the QW website and User Guide to be translated as well. The only trouble is that this is tiresome and tedious work so it takes a while.
I do have a longish list of user requests that will also be added in 2.7, they are mostly minor tweaks and ease of use things, like adding keyboard shortcuts to navigate through the tabs and having an option to turn off the startup splashscreen.
Longer term, I want to improve the spellchecker and problem finder and make it available for other languages. I also want to revisit my timeline planning tool, I had taken a stab at it a while back but technical issues prevented me from continuing but it’s a feature that’s been requested a few times now so it’s coming back to the top of my attention pile.
I am also planning an online backup and save function that would be for Patrons only, this is because I can’t afford to make the feature free and Patreon would make collecting payments etc easy.  This would provide backups and have your data be in the cloud for safe keeping (encrypted of course) but would also mean you could access your projects on any computer with QW installed.
Longer, longer term, version 3 will be on a new technology that will open up a lot more possibilities and features that are a little too painful to do at the moment.
So, lots to do!
