I understand this very well, but I think we have to live with this 
situation for a while, and not only with BT. The GnomeSword section says 
"soon also on Windows", too. I guess things will stabilize within half a 
year. Both BT and GS have made a real commitment to Windows port. I 
agree that the static web pages should be as static as possible, but we 
shouldn't compromise the quality of the information which we give to the 
users. Unredeemed promises are very bad, but sticking to one year old 
situation just because people don't want to edit web pages is not good 

Anyways, I can live with the current one. Maybe it just gives a new 
motivation to put BT forwards :)

Is it important? BT1.6 has about 20 UI translations. I don't like 
mentioning any specific language because the supported languages may and 
will change. As you know, the translations are made by volunteers :) For 
1.7 even the Finnish translation is out of date, and it was me (native 
speaker) who edited most of the English UI strings!

Who might that be, I don't know. Joachim or Martin. They both are busy. 
We should do better here, of course.
