Sitecore shell in Russian

Finally! I have translated Sitecore shell into Russian.

On the way I looked at the Office translation, SVN translation and many other books and sites. Main problem was whether some names should be translated at all, e.g. we don't use translation of Layout - we juts pronounce Layout. And the same thing with many other names. I guess that's because Russian is different from European languages.

Anyway, the first version is ready. I'm going to send it to Sitecore Ukraine firstly to get feedback. After that I'll publish it on SDN into Localization section which is being prepared.

Google Chrome - web-browser from Google

Google announced own web browser. That's not unexpected news, but I've tried Sitecore and it seems we support it :) - the same amount of features like in Firefox. At least I was able to do content editing and publishing.

See generated configuration in V6

Recently I've recollected that I could develop and decided renew my skills. There was a good occasion - during one of our technical meeting we discussed new feature of V6 - Auto Include Config files. It's great and very useful, but it seems to be hard to understand the final configuration file after all changes since they are made on a fly. But it's definitely necessary for debugging or discovering issues in the solution.

Here is a quick tool I did:

1. Install the package onto V6

2. Run the tool:

3. See the result:
