Most popular language statistics

Early on I realized English speakers make only 4% to 27% of the world's population (depending whether you count non-native speakers), so within two weeks of the first BleachBit release, I added internationalization support. Since then generous volunteers have translated BleachBit to 32 languages, and BleachBit is used by people speaking more languages than I can remember. Ideally BleachBit would be fully translated to every native language. Until then, well do its translation it serve people now?

BleachBit 0.6.4 released

BleachBit 0.6.4 adds a command line interface, displays a more detailed summary, fixes bugs, adds a Malay translation, and updates 17 other translations.

Certainly there have been some lessons learned on the strengths and weaknesses of each hosting provider. These may be useful to other open source projects choosing a web host—particularly for demanding, dynamic sites.
