I just installed 2.2, and the translation feature seems to work (mostly) well.

2 little things I noticed:

* In the beginning (like, first 10 requests in the admin interface after creating a translation), I couldn't go back to English in the little drop-down at the lower-left corner, only French (my first translation language) was available. Now both are there and I can't reproduce the effect of only seeing the alternative language. That seems like a weird bug.

* The translation tool doesn't respect the Accept-Language. Switching with ?lang= works fine and sticks until it's reset again by the same means; but the first request is always served from the default language, not higher-priority languages set in the browser. I think the default until it's set with ?lang= should be according to the Accept-list of the user.

Thanks otherwise for the beautiful software, 2.2 seems much more polished and "production ready" in all regards than earlier releases. Great work!

did you create your translated page by the translation-tab ("create" button), or by clicking on an untranslated page in the sitetree? did you still have the problem after a full page-refresh? trying to figure out if the dropdown was properly populating by ajax, or if the language wasn't actually saved on the serverside

interesting, didn't know about this header - i've added a ticket:

Ingo - thanks for creating the ticket.

Regarding backtracking my steps, sorry but I don't remember. I would argue for the AJAX refresh being delayed though, as the translations were persisted correctly and were available shortly afterwards. I didn't try the immediate full reload at the time, though.

I encountered the same problem. When choosing English in the drop-down menu sometimes the site-tree does not refresh. Occasionally (can't figure out why) an Ajax error is occured when clicking "save&publish" the translation and the links in the site-tree stop to react. You have to refresh to go normal state. Though the content is saved and published properly.
