Internationalization is almost done. We now have Studio running in English,
German and French. A general review is now needed for the German and the
French translation before closing the related issues

The move to the latest Eclipse dependencies (version 3.4.2) is currently in
progress and should be fixed by the end of this week.

>From the list above, I think we can still easily and quickly fix a few
simple issues (thinking about DIRSTUDIO-412
But, there are also issues requiring more refactoring and time.

The latest version of Apache Directory Studio (1.3.0) has been released on
November 24th 2008, 4 months ago.
We've had some discussion, here at ApacheCon, and we think it's time to
think at releasing the version 1.4.0 version very soon.
It could be ready next week.

Any thoughts?
