Amara 1.2 goes alpha, and other developments

First of all 4Suite went 1.0 rather quietly because the day job schedule has left room for very little besides quiet releases. It's probably just as well because by common standards 4Suite has been 1.0 grade for years. Under any less conservative version numbering scheme it would be 4Suite 3.0 by now.

I'm pushing Amara to 1.2 (a more typical progression of version numbers in that case) and after a developers-only alpha, we've released alpha 1.2a2 publicly, but quietly. As I've hinted before I have a lot of ideas for Amara post 1.2. The next major branch will be a full rewrite, probably to be released as Amara 2.0. Anyway, see the draft for the 1.2 full release announcement.

I also put together a quick start recipe for Amara on Ubuntu, and Luis Miguel Morillas has one for Windows users in Spanish. He says he'll be translating it to English soon, and when he does, I'm sure he'll link it from his "Amara Installers for Windows Users" page.
