Multilingual Zotero for Firefox 20 released

I’ve put up a fresh release of Multilingual Zotero (MLZ). The new client incorporates code changes to Zotero 4.0, and is compatible with Firefox 20. There is little change in the feature set, apart from citation processor fixes that apply to all projects that make use of citeproc-js. Some adjustments remain to be made in the new version: style validation is currently disabled, but will be restored fairly soon, some of the site translators appear to need attention, and Zotero’s automatic style updating still needs to be extended to cover the MLZ styles. But for the most part, you should be able to carry on as usual following the upgrade. If you run into snags, give a shout.

    Thank you for updating MLZ but looks like you have again forgotten about the Latvian CSL file.
    Is there any progress towards merging this fork with the official Zotero?

      Do you mean the CSL selection menu? The locale file is in place, but it does look like Latvian is missing from the menu.

      If that’s the issue, you haven’t been missing anything: CSL language selection has been partially fixed in MLZ, but the selection does not take effect. I’ll be fixing this soon, in preparation for another release of the client.

      On the other question, the Zotero developers definitely intend to merge multilingual functionality into official Zotero, but it is a major task, and will take some time (probably measured in years).

      The new MLZ release just went up. The Latvian locale should show up and work now — if you have any problems, let me know.
