As per roadmap, we are releasing BETA version of COMODO Firewall Pro with support of Greek language. With this we are freezing support of any other language for 2.4 release. In future when we plan to add more languages we will inform users who volunteered to do translation for other languages.
Since we got last translation done from voulnteers, we have added few more strings so we will be supplying updated files to translators.
There are very few strings but still if we can cover those also it will be good. From now onwards till release we are going to focus on per language corrections.
Following are changes:
- System Tray icon animation is optional now, there is a menu item “Enable Tray Animation” added in system tray icon menu, so you can turn on/off animation.
- Some users reported at times they see “library dialog box” without any list of libraries. It has been fixed.
- Firewall should not be asking about permission for the same library again and again. If you do get it please checkout if those files have been updated b’caz of some update. If that’s the case and you allow there should be multiple entries of that library in “Component Monitor”. Duplicate entries are only possible if their hash values differ else not.

In general we are facing translation length issues with Greek translation. Greek translation is in general larger than any other language translation done so far. The area that it affects most is “Component Monitor” and “Network Monitor”.
We have three radio buttons and four buttons placed linearly in “Component Monitor” and two radio buttons and five buttons in “Network Monitor” section. When corresponding English text is translated, width has to be increased b’caz of their linear placement. So on language basis we have increased default width of the application but in case of Greek, even making default width to 800px is not good enough, so we had to reduce the font size on buttons and still things are very crowded there. So for following English text translation must be consized:
Turn On, Turn Off, Learn Mode, Add, Edit, Remove, Move Up, Move Down, Apply, Refresh
We have postponed COMODO Firewall Pro release date to 4th Jan, 2007. It will be released with following languages:
1) Chinese (Traditional)
2) Chinese (Simplified)
7) Portugese (Brazilian)
8 ) Portugese (Continental)
10) Spanish (LA)
11) Spanish (Spain)
Please uninstall previous 2.4.* BETA version and install afresh to test.
Thanking all the translators for their contribution.
