Anything related to PR, release planning and any other non-technical idea how to move the project forward should be discussed here.

The release announcement posts for version 0.47.0 are almost ready. It would be nice to get some feedback on the German post, though. That's why I have uploaded both changelogs to a public GitLab repo for anyone to proofread and check for weird/confusing wording.

Here's the link: 0.47.0 Changelogs.

Any feedback is very much welcome! (And you can, of course, check the English version too.)

Well done! :D

Here are my suggestions for the German version:
1) #2404: Maybe add the English version "("levelled lists")" to clarify
2) #5730: Maybe change "wortwörtlichen "Aufsammelns"" to "sichtbares "Aufsammeln""
3) #5580: I am not quite sure if "NSC" is easier to understand than "NPC"; I wasn't sure what a NSC is; See #5545, #4894, #6043, #2311, #5300, #5840, #6016, #5397, #5706, #5479, #5821, #4465, #5731
4) #4917: I think "Performance" should be removed
5) #5043: Maybe "Kopf des Helden" should be "Kamera"; Maybe add "("head bobbing")"
6) #5706: NSC should probably be "NSCs"; Maybe even "NPCs"; See 3)
7) #5479: NSC should probably be "NSCs"; Maybe even "NPCs"; See 3)
8) #5807: I would suggest the following instead: "Absturz auf ARM-Systemen behoben, der durch falsche Verarbeitung der Frame-Allokation im 'osg-ffmpeg-videoplayer' verursacht wurde"

Regarding "NSC" vs. "NPC": I'm an old-school role-playing gamer with a pen-&-paper background, so I tend to use the German variants of certain terms. But I think that you're right and "NPC" is clearer to the average gamer.

Hmm, you usually skip the "s" for plural acronyms in German if it is clear that the plural is meant. Switching to "NPC", however, makes it seem more natural to use the "s". I'll just implement your suggestion, then.

Thanks a lot! Let me know if there is anything else. :)

Is there a progress with release packages?

It's currently impossible to do a Flatpak release build though, as the tagged commit has a broken appinfo XML and needs the screenshots to be replaced.

We normally do not post release packages until the actual release :)
Otherwise other websites/sources steal the thunder and undercut our release announcements/videos

Do we need to fix it ASAP, or can just skip Flatpak release?

New screenshots, which can be used: https://imgur.com/a/vfHNp6D

Probably it would be better to copy them to the https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw-docs repo and then update links in the openmw.appdata.xml file. I do not know if something else is broken in that file, though.

By the way, we have some images (Ring_to_A‎rrille.png, Ring_to_Fa‎rgoth_1.png, and Ring_to_Fa‎rgoth_2.png) missing in this folder: https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw-docs/- ... /chapter-1

It's probably best not to go via Imgur as they recompress things. Sometimes their .PNG links still have JPEG artefacts the originally uploaded file didn't.
