Language changes in latest Joomla version

Post by vis22 » Wed Aug 26, 2020 10:53 am

Hi,
Is there a way to find out what are the changes in language files that come with new Joomla versions? Does one have to be a member of translation team in order to find out what they are or can we find this information somewhere?
Thanks

You can keep track of all changes in the git repository of Joomla CMS.

Regarding language file changes, check:
https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/tr ... uage/en-GB
https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/tr ... uage/en-GB

All files have a "changed months ago" date.
If you click on a file, you get a page with on the top right "Latest commit" xxxx on "date" + a "History" button.
In the history you can see all changes with the previous version.

You're welcome!

Alternatively, you could download the full packages of 3.9.20 + 3.9.21,
unzip those to two separate directories
and use software like https://meldmerge.org/ to compare the two directories to see all changes.

The extension https://github.com/joomla-projects/mod_ ... f_tool_otf compares the language strings differences between two different versions of Joomla!

Thank you both, I found it easier to check the changes via GitHub
