What's New on Tatoeba? - Your weekly recap °17
※ Thanks to Trang, and everyone's feedback, the review feature is now available on the new sentence design. Cheers to her!
※ The wiki now have a Turkish version. At this time, it only has one article, the quick start guide: https://tr.wiki.tatoeba.org/art...izli-baslangic Feel free to expand it if you can write Turkish!
※ rumpelstilzchen did some minor optimizations to make hopefully Tatoeba run a little bit faster. Let us know if you feel the difference!
※ The language "Chinese (Jin)" has been renamed to "Jin Chinese" for consistency with other Chinese languages. (It was already translated like that in some languages.) Thanks to Yorwba for reporting the issue.
※ The shadow behind non-rectangular flags now correctly follows the shape of the flag instead. This improvement makes flags like Marathi look much better. Thanks to sabretou for the suggestion and speedysera (a new contributor on Github) for the implementation.
※ Yorwba significantly improved the tool that converts between traditional and simplified characters and Pinyin https://tatoeba.org/eng/wall/sh...#message_35166
