Padre 0.19 released - more languages

[ #37973 ]
As usual I am glad to announce release 0.19 of Padre, the Perl IDE

Look at the Changes file.


  • Added Korean, Hungarian and Hebrew translations of the GUI to the already existing German and English
  • Switching between languages is now immediate
  • Beginning of better file encoding support
  • Continuous Perl syntax checking is now available to every user

You can already fetch it from CPAN by typing

cpan> install Padre

If something does not work well, look at the download page or ask us on IRC for help.

Regarding languages.

I'd like to go deeper and broader.

By broader I mean I'd like to have more translations. Actually there is a Chinese, a Spanish and a Dutch on the way. I just need to get the translators sign up on our web site so I can give them commit access.

One of our objectives is to make Perl more accessible to beginners. This means to eliminate the need to know English well. For that I'd like to have more translated versions of our GUI.

So if you think you'd like to help the beginners in your local language a bit, please consider translating the GUI of Padre.

By deeper I meant that I also would like to have translated versions of the Perl call-tips (simple description of the perl keywords) and one for the errors and warnings perl gives along with the localized version of diagnostics.

We plan to make this work independent from Padre so it can be reused by other tools as well.

So again, if you'd like to help this effort talk to us on our mailing list or on IRC #padre.

The above might sound like a lot of work but with our weekly release you can do a little at a time and see the improvement. That will bring in more people to help you.

  • I just downloaded Portable Strawberry Padre v 0.19.

    More specifically,

    It looks good so far, but I can't enable most of the plugins via the plugin manager screen.

    I was able to enable Devel, JavaScript, My, and Vi.

    But trying to enable AcmePlayCode, CPAN, Encrypt, Parrot, PerlTidy, Pip, or PluginHelper gets me

    Can't locate object method "new" via package "Padre::Plugin::AcmePlayCode" at C:/Users/Mike/str
